WHICH WOULD YOU PICK UP?
Say Hello to Your New Favorite Supergreen • One pretty backyard weed is actually a totally edible nutritional powerhouse—and tasty too! Purslane grows low to the ground; its sturdy, smooth leaves look a bit like succulents and are loaded with omega-3s, vitamin A, iron, magnesium, potassium, calcium, and antioxidants. The greens, which have a mild taste and a slight crunch, are best eaten raw and give a lovely flavor, texture, and nutrient boost when added to sandwiches and salads or used as a topping for omelets and tacos. Look for purslane at farmers’ markets, if not in your yard!
