YUMMMMM!, Member jaob

This is a terrific way to make dandelion greens which, as the others have pointed out, are bitter. I love the pungent taste of dandelion greens. This recipe has a hint of heat. I think I'll add a tad more next time. The Parmesan adds such a nice touch with the onions & garlic. Just be careful of the stems which can be a bit woody. Dandelions are one of the top greens for nutritional benefits too!
