Farmer's Market Finds - Fiddlehead Recipe

Spring is here, and it's the perfect time to start getting in the habit of going to a farmer's market in your area. This weekend we stocked up on fiddleheads, nettles, sprouts, herbs, and greens like spinach, kale, dandelion and lamb's quarter. We bought ramps too and, like classic idiots, left them somewhere at the market and did not realize it until we unpacked everything. oops!

Cooking is so easy with fresh produce. Either eat it raw or cook it in a little oil with spices and herbs. So easy cavemen and cavewomen did it way back when.

Here we have fiddleheads sauteed (any oil, vegan butter you prefer) with shitake mushrooms, shallots, garlic, garlic scapes and garlic chives, salt, pepper, and fresh basil.

And this was a dish that the farmers were making at their stand so we duplicated it! Sauteed soybean sprouts with turmeric (grated), garlic scapes/chives, salt, pepper, and I added the tamari and the sesame seeds.

Get your farmer's market on!
