Early Spring...I start craving raw greens and getting a bit sick of silverbeet. This is just about the time when our green manure crops take off and we have a field of pea shoots! Pea Shoots are a delicious, nutritious leaf with high levels of vitamin C, vitamin A and folic acid. They contain 7 times more vitamin C then blueberries!! Here is a foraged salad... Ingredients 1 bok choy, cleaned and sliced 1 bunch pea shoots, chopped bite size 1 cup mung bean shoots edible flowers like borage, johnny jump ups, nasturtiums and calendula
Dressing 1/2 cup olive oil 1/4 cup white vinegar 1/3 cup white sugar 3 tablespoons soy sauce
Method 1. Combine the greens, top with mung beans. 2. Combine all dressing ingredients in a jar and shake to blend. 3. Dress salad just before serving and top with flowers.
