YUMMMMM!July 21, 2012 By 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!

I liked the recipe very much. I made it as a soup. It looked a lot like a chinese-type soup (hot/sour soup). This spring I chopped in the whole plant, including leaves and root. I think the root adds a nice texture.

I can finally eat them!May 04, 2010 By eberann
This was very helpful to me. The boiling made a huge difference and now I'm drinking the water as dandelion tea. Thank you. Delicious!

Great recipe for dandelion greens!April 06, 2009 By cmauk1
The parboiling really cuts the bitterness of the greens. I added a little white wine when I made them and it turned out great. I have bought cultivated dandelion greens in the past, but I think this is the first time I've picked my own out of the yard. They were a bit more prickly than the cultivated greens I bought before, but softened up nicely with cooking.

cicoria is very popular in ItalyMarch 02, 2009 By AnthonyAntonicello
I have watched my mother eat dandelions all my life. My mother lived to be 102 yeas of age and had all her faculities till the end. With price of spinach being what it is I believe dandelions is a great second choice. To me it is a first choice.

Tasty but need to balance the bitternessMarch 03, 2008 By todd_r_ahern
I had my doubts about dandelion greens as I knew them to be bitter but figured I'd give this recipe a shot. I made this in two batches, one following the recipe and another adding raisins to the onion/garlic mixture. The batch with the raisins was much nicer as it covered the bitterness of the dandelion. I would definitely recommend this if you've never tried them before.
