    Sponsored by the Dudgeon-Monroe and Westmoreland neighborhood associations, this garlic mustard pull teaches how to "eat the problem" of the terribly invasive and destructive garlic mustard menace. Come pull weeds and enjoy garlic mustard specialties created by Peter Robertson of RP's Pasta and Barbara Wright of the Dardanelles. For more info, contact Peter Nause at pan@secondnature.biz or 206-1463.


    Garlic mustard plants are indeed a problem. So what do people cook with them, because they are certainly easy to obtain. To sort of begin the conversation, I found:

    All About Garlic Mustard, which notes the tap root is spicy!
    More information on Garlic Mustard

    Pesto
    Garlic Mustard Ravioli

    Beyond garlic mustard, I found:

    An index of invasive plant recipes courtesy of The Mid-Atlantic Exotic Pest Plant Council
    Wild (and not so wild) recipes

    I'm sure there are more and better recipes out there, what have you made or found?

    Hi,

    Look to nr706 to be the first to admit to eating his weeds: Wild Violets.

    From this:

    Maybe I need to eat more weeds.


    If you can't fight'em, then eat'em!
