olive oil

Olive oil and lemon juice dressing is the perfect accompaniment for steamed wild foraged greens.

Some of the greens have such a fine and delicate flavour that anything other than this dressing would obliterate aromas and tastes.

The traditional and recommended way to cook your foraged greens is steamed. Take a large frying pan and fill with boiling water to cover the base to about 5mm depth. Add 3-4 tbsp of oilve oil to the water. Add your greens and stir. Cook for 5 minutes. 

The slightly bitter and earthy taste of the greens pairs perfectly with the tangy and acidic taste of the lemon juice. The olive oil adds a rich and depth of flavor to the dish. Additionally, olive oil is a great source of heart-healthy fat and antioxidants. Lemon juice is not only good for adding flavor, but it also has numerous health benefits like improving digestion and boosting immunity. Overall, the combination of olive oil and lemon juice dressing is a delicious and healthy way to enhance the flavors of wild foraged greens.
