“A common flower, a weed that no one sees, yes. But for us, a noble thing, the dandelion.”
― Ray Bradbury, Dandelion Wine

A dandelion is a stubborn weed that easily could be found in your backyard and garden. Surprisingly it contains a lot of good nutrients for your body. Its fresh leaves for example contain lutein and taraxanthin, provitamin A, vitamins C and B2. The roots are rich in glycerides of oleic, linoleic, and a number of other acids, proteins (over 10%), and others. There are really interesting, and delicious dandelion recipes you can try. Of course one of them is the famous dandelion wine!

You can make so many things with dandelion flowers, and leaves. Fresh green salads, pesto ideally fit your spring menu. Creamy soups, or tea that can boost your immune system when you have a cold. Sunny elixirs that can make your garden party unique!
