Some natural foods.
« on: January 08, 2016, 09:07:52 am »
Wild Pizza


>> Premade pizza shell or pita
>> 8 cups of wild greens (packed tightly)
>> 2 onions medium sized finely chopped
>> 3 tbsps. olive oil or butter
>> 1/2 cup sour cream
>> 1 egg
>> 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
>> Pinch ground cloves
>> Pinch cayenne
>> 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
>> 2 cups grated mozzarella cheese


(Recommended greens include: plantain, dandelion, wild lettuce, garlic mustard and lamb’s quarters.)

Preheat oven to 450° F.

Chop greens and place in a small amount of water, boil until tender and wilted. Older greens may be boiled more than once in a change of water to lessen bitterness if desired. Drain well. Once cooled, squeeze out excess liquid.

Sauté onions in oil or butter until soft. Add in greens and sauté about 5 minutes.

In a bowl beat egg and sour cream. Add cloves, nutmeg, cayenne, parmesan cheese, sautéed onions and greens.

Spread evenly on premade pizza shell or pita, leaving a small border around the edge. Sprinkle mozzarella cheese on top. Cook for 15 minutes or when cheese starts to bubble

I grow milk weeds. The bees love the flowers, the Monarch Butterflies need the plant to lay eggs on and feed the Larva stage.

Buffalo Style Milkweed Pods


>> 1 and 1/2 cup Panko (Japanese bread crumbs) (Or any other bread crumbs)
>> 1/4 cup flour
>> 1 tbsp. garlic powder
>> 1 tsp. of each: paprika, oregano, cayenne and turmeric
>> 1 egg
>> 1/2 cup almond milk
>> 1/2 cup water
>> Hot wing sauce of your choice


Preheat oven to 350°F.

Mix dry ingredients together. Mix egg, almond milk and water together then blend in dry ingredients. Mix well.

Dip milkweed pods into batter and place on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Place in oven and cook for 15-20 minutes.

When crisp take out and place in a bowl. Add in your favourite wing sauce (enough to evenly coat) and mix. Place milkweed pods back on the baking sheet and cook for an additional 10 minutes.


Stuffed Milkweed Pods


>> 4 oz. cream cheese softened
>> 1 tbsp. diced red onion
>> 2 slices of cooked bacon
>> 1 small jalapeno chopped fine
>> salt and pepper
>> 20 milkweed pods, boiled and split
>> bread crumbs


Heat oven to 375°F.

Place the softened cream cheese in a bowl and mix in the diced onion, jalapeno, bacon, salt and pepper. Remove the immature seeds and silk from the boiled milkweed pods, and spoon in about 2 tsp. of cream cheese filling until the pod is full.

Roll the exposed seam of cream cheese in bread crumbs and place seam side up on a baking sheet covered with a sheet of parchment paper.

Bake the stuffed pods for 15-20 minutes. Serve warm.
