Althought considered a weed that grows wildly, Purslane is actually a superfood that contains more Omega-3 Fatty Acids than any other leafy vegetable plant. All of its parts are edible and they have a slightly sour and salty taste. It can be used fresh as a salad, stir-fried, or cooked as spinach is, and because of its mucilaginous properties, it is also suitable for soups and stews. It can be grown throughout the year and is an extremely invasive and rapidly spreading crop. If you want a more tangier taste, we suggest harvesting it early in the morning.
