Purslane Is Way More Than A Weed
I have been weeding and throwing out Purslane plants that grow everywhere in my herb garden every summer! A while back, I found out on a Facebook page called Beyond Green Scene that they are packed with nutrients including Omega 3. I had read somewhere, (although I can't remember where) that Purslane was known to be excellent for improving blood sugar!!!! Anyhow, here's a link to recipes for Purslane from a blog post called Chocolate and Zucchini.
This year, several patches of Purslane have shown up again in my garden. Yaaay!!! I'm looking forward to enjoying them through the summer months. My favorite is to quick stir fry them like I do spinach, and enjoy with Brown Rice, Millet, or Quinoa, Dal and my home made Lime Pickle. I also use them with cukes, avocado etc in wraps Yummmm!
