Quick Braised Hogweed Shoots

Braised Hogweed Shoots Recipe

Young, furled hogweed shoots (Heracleum sphondylium) are the queen of wild vegetables. Gourmet doesn’t even come close to describe them. If you place asparagus up there on an 8-10 ‘taste blooming awesome’ scale. This braised hogweed shoots recipe nudges in at an acceptable 12-14, making asparagus taste mediocre!

Buttery, scented, divinely delicious and downright more-ish, you could be forgiven if you became a hogweed shoot addict.

Thai Style Three Cornered Leek & Tempeh Stir Fry

Thai Style Three Cornered Leek Stir Fry Recipe

I love quick, wholesome wild food dishes, and if they have Asian flavours so much the better. This Thai style three cornered leek stir fry recipe really did the trick. It doesn’t require any noodles either. Tempeh is very filling and a fermented food. Tofu I find utterly tasteless, and not very satisfying. Read more…

Kelp Lasagne

Kelp Lasagne Recipe
Seaweed is highly nutritious and tasty as this kelp recipe will show, and something that we need to be eating daily as it is anti-inflammatory, anti-viral and some say even anti-cancer. Kelp (Laminaria digitata) also known as oarweed or tangle, and in Japan as Kombu, is one of the most delicious and easy to recognise seaweeds. You’ll find it at low tide at the extreme lower part of the shore.

Kelp is very high in iron and iodine, bromine, phosphorus, boron and zinc. It also contains protein, sugar, starch, fat, vitamin A, B1, B12, vitamin C, calcium, magnesium to name a few.  Read more…

Nettle Seed Cheese Straws

Nettle Seed Cheese Straws Recipe

Wandering the fields and hedgerows, phone left at home. I sense a deep peace and freedom. Unplugged, my awareness stays present with the moment and the elements. Chancing upon a lovely patch of nettle in seed, I gather. Slowly. Methodically. Breathing. The simple act of gathering allows me to sink deep down into my bones. Relaxed. At home I dry them on the floor, then store them for later use. Green and wild, wild and green, oh how it feels to be so serene. Read more…

Sugar Free Nettle & Seaweed Sweets

Nettle Sweets Recipe

I love Stinging Nettle (Urtica dioica), it has so many potential uses in drinks, savoury and dessert recipes. Recently I gathered some young nettle tips, new growth that had appeared after the council had done some recent strimming. Remembering the recipes I used to create when I was a raw food vegan back on the mid 1980s; I thought that I would try and recreate an old recipe from a booklet I wrote from those dietary exploration days called ‘Biogenic Nutrition: A Living Foods Lifestyle‘. This is the result; a nourishing raw, sugar free energy lifting nettle sweet recipe. Read more…
