I’ve recently gotten into permaculture and have always had a love for creating new recipes in the kitchen with fresh organic produce. I’ve recently noticed that there aren’t a lot if any cookbooks out for us permaculturists. Does anyone know of any good resources for recipes? Any input would be much appreciated. TIA

And of course the classic homesteaders' book:

I swear I have a British urban foraging cookbook that was fun, but it may have gotten purged and it's not in my LibraryThing listing. I recall it being a bit fluffy, but it had a memorable recipe for cleavers, and they've finally shown up in my garden. I'll have to hunt for it.
Ha, found it! Street Food: Urban Foraging and World Food by Ceridwen Buckmaster.
I like the approach - "a collection of recipes inspired by the wild plants that grow in urban areas, as well as by the people and the diverse food traditions present in the city". Organized by month, each month also focusing on a specific world cuisine, with quick descriptions of the featured plants. Slim book, but I've bookmarked 20+ recipes to try at some point.
It's not a living-off-the-land book, but the ethos of the project "Invisible Food" that it came from is very permaculture-y.
