I spent three hours outside on this wet, windy day, foraging for edibles. Nettles, baby ramps, wild onions, chickweed, wild mustard greens and garlic-mustard all made their way into my bag and eventually, my stomach.
The nettles were quickly sauteed and minced, then folded into a big bowl of grassfed ground beef, sauteed onions, garlic and ginger, along with beaten eggs and plenty of salt and pepper to make wonderful meatballs. I simmered sprouted red lentils with more garlic/ginger/onions, then topped them with butter-caramelized baby ramps and wild onions, and a big handful of crisp chickweed and mustard greens. This was one satifisying meal!
Back to the wine-swilling tomorrow!
