A wonderful early spring treat
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 3 Tablespoons of pine nuts or sunflower seeds
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 2 packed cups chopped fresh chickweed
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese in a blender
Serve this over pasta or just use it as a dip for crackers or vegetables. You can even freeze some in case you decide to make a lot at once.
It's delicious and filled with nutritional value as well. A great example of food as medicine.
Chickweed is high in vitamin C, calcium, and iron as well as many other important minerals. It is also very nourishing for the lungs.
