Meyer Lemon Garlic Dandelion Greens



Ingredients you’ll need: Serves 4-6

2 lbs. organic dandelion greens – rinsed, stems removed cut crosswise into 1-2 inch pieces, and blanched.

3 cloves of garlic – sliced

1/2 Meyer lemon – juiced, seeds removed

1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil

1/4 tsp. infused chili oil

1/4 tsp. pink Himalayan salt – crushed

1/4 tsp. fresh cracked black pepper

1/4 tsp. Fleur de Sel sea salt for finishing

How to prepare:

In a pot of boiling water, add cut dandelion greens. Cook for 5 minutes or until stems become tender to al dente. Remove from boiling water and place in a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking process. When cooled, remove from water and place on a towel to drain.

In a sauté pan, heat oils over medium heat for 2-3 minutes. Add the sliced garlic and sauté for 1 minute. Add the dandelion greens, season with the pink Himalayan salt and cracked black pepper. Sauté for 2 minutes. Drizzle the Meyer Lemon juice over the greens and cook for another minute. Remove from heat and finish with Fleur de Sel for added crunch.  Serve.
