Stir fried dandelions and potatoes is a quick and tasty Italian classic. Commonly, it is served as a hot salad for appetizer, or aside meats, eggs, or salty fish, like anchovies or sardines. I really love stir fried dandelions, they are very healthy greens! Their bitter taste pairs perfectly with the sweet of golden potatoes and the salty flavor of Pecorino Romano cheese. When the weather permits to grill outside my house, the stir fried dandelions are a must-to-eat aside steaks and sausages!
Ingredients
  • 1 Lb (450 g) dandelion greens
  • 1 golden potato
  • 4 shallots
  • 7 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp Pecorino Romano
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • to taste table salt
Instructions
  1. STEAMED DANDELION GREENSWash and raise the dandelion greens as times as needs to eliminate dirt. Steam or boil the dandelion just 5 minute. If is possible, save the water used to steam or boil the vegetables.

Finally, add the dandelion reduced into pieces 3 inches long. Saute 5 minutes, then add ½ ladle of the water used to cook the dandelion. Cook over medium heat until the potatoes are cooked, but not mashed. If necessary, add a few spoon of water more. Finally, add grated Pecorino Romano cheese, black pepper, and salt to taste. Far from the heat, complete with 1 tbsp of olive oil for the portion and serve very hot.
