Feels like Spring
When the lilacs bloom it feels like spring time! These are my mother's favourite flowers and I'm always so envious of people who have them in their yards because I rarely get up close to these gorgeous buds however today I spotted some wild ones growing REALLY close to my home so I ventured out with gloves and a scissors and collected this bouquet.
Just loving them!
- 2 cups tender plantain leaves (plucked from a nice clean path in your yard or foraged in nature)
- Knob of butter (drop of olive oil)
- 1 garlic clove
- Salt & pepper to taste
Water or stock
Heat the pan, add butter and olive oil, saute garlic until fragrant and then sautee your greens. Season and add water (or stock) and simmer until tender.
