Vegetarian and vegan recipes with herbs
November 03, 2009

If you are growing your food, you will understand the joy of walking in your garden or rooftop and harvest fresh leaves, even if the weather get worse every day.

Dandelion and mustardDandelion and black mustard autumn leaves are a bit harder than the spring ones, and it's better to cook them instead of eat them raw in salads.


I stir-fried them, and added to this tasty and healthy fritters mixture.
