Potatoes With Dandelion Greens


Pots with Dandelion Greens

My husband recently turned me on to a particular food writer at the New York Times, Mark Bittman, who has a collumn called The Minimalist. In it he creates simple dishes in a few minutes accompanied by four minute videos to prove it. He also has a blog called Bitten. You, my devoted readers, know I’m having a hard time feeling motivated to cook, and his foods are delicious and easy, with just a few ingredients. Score!

Below is the link to the recent article and video about potatoes with dandelion greens, which stayed on my husbands mind for days.

The Greening of Mashed Potatoes

The photos are of dinner a couple of nights ago, just in time for St. Patty’s Day. Tim made the potatoes with dandelion greens, which have a mild, almost sweet flavor – it’s hard to believe there was actually a green out there we had never tried before!  I ate them with veggie sausage patties (which Tim slightly overcooked, but what’re’ya gonna do – at least he cooks when I clearly don’t want to!) and Tim ate them with some kind of German sausage.

And if you’re interested, the Dining & Wine and Fitness & Nutrition sections of the New York Times, are definitely worth your regular perusal. Cheers!
