Sea Aster & Tomato Soup

To me Sea Aster is one of the best estuary greens. This Sea Aster recipe looks more like a gazpacho, however the delicate flavours of the Sea Aster are complimented really well by the sweet, sunny taste of the tomatoes. I fed it to a friend who usually turns her nose up at a lot of what I make from the wild, but this time it hit the spot, and she even came back for seconds! A Sea Aster recipe that rocks.

Sea Aster Soup Recipe Ingredients

  • 8 Sun ripened English tomatoes
  • 4 Large handfuls of Sea Aster
  • ¼ to ½ cup of Kefir or natural yoghurt
  • Olive oil

Sea Aster Soup Recipe Instructions

  1. Chop the tomatoes up along with the Sea Aster
  2. Put in a blender with a good glug of olive oil and blitz until smooth.
  3. Next add the Kefir/yoghurt and blitz again, then serve.
  4. Optional: Decorate with mustard flowers.

My Latest Print Book is Now Available on Amazon

For over fifteen years I have experimented and explored the world of wild plants. Uncovering how our ancestors used plants to nourish and heal themselves.

I’ve spent thousands of hours digging through scientific papers, read hundreds of books. Even gone so far as to be nomadic for over a year. During this time I followed the seasons and plants around the highways and byways of these isles.

I have written this book to help you rediscover our forgotten plant heritage. To learn how to use wild plants as food and medicine. Knowledge that was once common to everyone. Click here to learn more.
