Purslane Anyone?

Purslane (postelein) is certainly not anything I cooked with before yet there it was.
In my sample crate from the Streekmolen.
A whole lot of it too.

Apparently it is very good for you.

Purslane is quite versatile and I ended up using it two nights in a row for dinner:

  • It was very happy to be part of a ''stamppot'' which in essence meant making mashed potatoes and mixing the purslane into the potatoes; and
  • It was the star ingredient in a vegetable soup.
Green goodness indeed!
