Recipe: Dandelion Greens Two Ways

29 Mar

I prepped the dandelion greens for the pizza, and prepped a fresh carrot salad, but ended up with too many dandelion greens, so I added them into the salad to make dandelion greens two ways.

Ingredients for the pizza

  • 1 whole wheat pizza crust
  • 1 package shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 onion, sliced and caramelized
  • 1 veggie chorizo sausage, sliced and sauteed
  • 1/2 bunch of dandelion greens, chopped
  • red pepper flakes to taste

Assemble the pizza by first placing the sauteed onions on the crust, then the cheese, then the raw greens and sausage.  Sprinkle with hot pepper flakes and a drizzle of olive oil.  Bake according to the dough directions.  The greens get nice and crispy this way (if you saute them first, they will be more wilted, if you prefer).

Ingredients for the Carrot Dandelion Salad

  • 1 large carrot, julienned
  • a few leaves mint, chopped
  • a small handful of Italian parsley, chopped
  • 1 T pine nuts
  • 1/2 T balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 T olive oil
  • 1/2 bunch dandelion greens, chopped

Combine all ingredients, season with S&P and set aside to let flavors combine.
