I kicked up some ordinary chicken soup by adding foraged chickweed and wood sorrel. It was delicious and nutritious. 😋

Here goes another recipe. This is also nettle-based, although it also contained foraged Jack-by-the-Hedge (also known as Hedge Garlic or Garlic Mustard).

The dish is a chana saag masala, a chickpea and spinach curry, with foraged greens making up the bulk (I also used a bit of spinach as we had some kicking around!). I spent quite a lot it time in India and love spiced food so I tend to make this quite fiery and full of aromatics. It's surprisingly light, despite this. Served with nigella and coriander naan.

Ingredients:

500g chickpeas (cooked)
An onion, in rings
5 cloves garlic
2x tins of tomatoes, or 6 fresh tomatoes
Aubergine or eggplant
3 cups greens (1 each of spinach, nettle and Jack-by-the-Hedge in my case, use anything)

Salt
Black pepper
Dried chillies
Cumin seeds
Coriander seeds, ground
Fennel seeds
Black mustard seeds

Method:

1. Heat some oil (I used coconut) until hot and add the spices and the onion. Fry these off until the onion gets some colour.
2. Chop and add the aubergine, stirring until soft.
3. Add the tomatoes and the chickpeas. Put the lid on your pan and cook for 20-30 minutes on a medium heat.
4. Add the greens, replace the lid, and prepare any accompaniments. The greens will only take a few minutes!

Here is my submission for the Foraging - Sand - Forage and Prepare a Dish BB.

Today, I foraged for lambs quarters and (after washing) added it to the salad for lunch - SkIP 2021 Event.

To document the completion of the BB, I have provided the following:
 - A picture of one of the plants in the wild
 - A picture of obviously more than a cup of foraged ingredients (or pic of the ingredients in a measuring cup)
 - A picture of the finished dish
 - A description of what the dish is: mixed green salad with lambs quarters, spinach, and lettuces
