• 15 to 20 dandelion flowers – make sure they’ve not been treated with herbicides or pesticides, please!
• 2 eggs
• 1 tablespoon water
• 1 & 1/2 cups dried bread crumbs or crumbs of your choice
• zest from one organic lemon
• 1 teaspoon dried and milled Omega 7 Solberry seabuckthorn
• 1/2 teaspoon table salt
• 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
• sunflower oil
• clarified butter (optional)
Thoroughly rinse dandelion flowers. Carefully remove the small dark green sepals. You want to remove all the dark green bits because they are bitter, but leave the light green “meat” to keep the flower intact. Place cleaned flowers on paper towels to dry.
In a small bowl beat eggs and water until well-combined. Set aside.
Combine bread crumbs, lemon zest, salt, and pepper in another bowl. Mix well. Set aside.
Heat enough olive oil or a 50-50 mix of olive oil and clarified butter in a sauté pan.
While oil is heating, dip dandelions in egg mixture and then cover in bread crumbs making sure both sides are well coated.
When oil has heated, fry dandelions on one side until golden brown, then flip and fry the other side.
Remove fried dandelions to a paper towel lined plate to absorb excess oil. When all dandelions have been fried, transfer them to a serving plate and sprinkle with Solberry dried and milled seabuckthorn. Serve immediately. For original recipe visit Food52!
