Here is how to cook dandelions.

Wash and clean a bunch or two of dandelions.

Put the greens into the boiling water.

Boil for 5 to 10 minutes, until look and feel tender.

Take the greens out the pot with a slatted spoon and plunge immediately into a bowl with plenty of cold water to cover.

Take a bunch of the leaves with your hand , make a ball and squeeze with both hands to remove the extra water and some of the bitterness.

Put on a cutting board and chop the greens up in small pieces.

Saute olive oil and garlic until golden in color, then add the blanched greens and cook for 5 to 10 minutes, adding little water if needed, near the end, add soy sauce or sea salt. Continue to cook for a minute and serve.

“The macrobiotic way of life recommended by the ancient wise people and practiced widely for physical, mental and spiritual development consists of the following arts; the way of eating, the way of breathing, and the way of daily life. Because a human being is part of his environment, and has evolved through biological development covering more than three billion years on this planet, his physical, mental and spiritual conditions are based upon what he consumes from his natural environment and his food. The way of eating is the most essential factor for his development.”
