After Reading This, You'll Never Look At Dandelions The Same Way Again
June 13, 2014
While most people might see weeds, others see dinner.
If you are looking to cook up a homemade meal packed with nutritional value, take a trip to the yard and pick some dandelions flowers. Most people don't realize that the tops are edible and not just the leaves.
Plus dandelions are packed full of antioxidants, calcium and vitamins!

What you need:
- Dandelion flowers
- One egg
- One cup of milk
- One cup of flour
- Olive oil for frying
First you need to gather the dandelion flowers – just the tops. They are easy to pick and so bright and cheery on a sunny day.
In a bowl, mix together one egg and one cup of milk. Stir in a cup of flour and your fritter batter is ready to go.
Prepare a skillet on the stove with gently warmed olive oil – keep it over medium heat.
Take one of the flowers and hold it by the greens at the base of the flower petals. Dip the petals into the batter and twirl until the flower is covered.
Continue dipping and dropping flowers until brown on both sides. Let cool and enjoy!
