Creamy Yogurt and Purslane Dip (Poorpookheena B’Mesta ooh Tooyma)
What is healthier than spinach, and makes this dip extra special? Purslane! What the heck is that, you ask? Allow me to explain; purslane is an edible succulent with a slightly sour taste. It can be eaten as is, steamed, or fried. It can also be a wonderful addition to soups. Nutritionally, it has six times more vitamin E than spinach, and seven times more beta carotene than carrots. Do you want to know more?
Most people consider purslane to be a pesky weed, but other cultures know of it’s many benefits. Chances are you have this weed invading your garden right now. You’re likely to find it growing amongst the plants in your garden, or in-between cracks in your concrete. It’s very hardy, and can be hard to control. Now that you’re “in the know”, consider harvesting it as food, instead of eradicating it as a weed.
