Recipe: Dandelion and Yams Pies

Savory pies and pizza with herbs
July 14, 2011

Dandelion is a spontaneous herb that grows well in arid soil. My dandelion was seeded, is watered and pampered all year and lives happily in a pot large 1 m in diameter, with hyssop and some ornamental chili.
Over the years of course, the plants fight each other for the upper hand, and occasionally I have to intervene. I chose to eradicate an entire dandelion plant, so I had an abundant harvest.

Dandelion and Yams PiesI prepared two recipes: these delicious pies that can be served with the parchment paper in which they are wrapped for a bouquet effect, and some Eggless Dandelion Pancakes.

quanto mi piace il tarasacco, ho una pianta vicino il cancello. ogni volta quando passo stacco una foglia e me la mangio.
faccio così anche con la rucola selvatica che cresce insieme alla bella di notte ( mirabilis jalapa) :-DD
l ho sempre solo usata in insalata, ma questi sformatini mi intrigano tantissimo.
ovvio che a me manca la patata dolce, ma credo che una communissima patata gialla, bianca o rossa potrebbe andare bene o no?
Graziana grazie di partecipare al WHB con questa ricetta!

Ciao Brii, la patata dolce assomiglia un po alla zucca, puoi usare una combinazione di dadini di patata e di zucca. La ricetta delle frittelle arriva presto!

Hi Rachel, the sligthly bitter dandelion and the sweet yam were a good combo.
