Joys of Chickweed in the Kitchen

For a plant, the humble little Chickweed is extremely high in PROTEIN – 15-20%. The highly nourishing leaves are also a good source of calcium, chromium, cobalt, molybdenum, magnesium, manganese, silicon and zinc. Also, very high in Vitamin C and iron.

  • Chickweed can be used in salads, soups or stir fries. It makes great pesto.
  • Chickweed can be added to sandwiches (a little like alfalfa sprouts texture-wise) and used in scrambled eggs. No cooking required as it is light and soft and easy to eat raw.
