Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Clean Dandelions under running water and cut at base to free leaves. Boil for 30 minutes or until tender, drain and cool with cold water. Squeeze out all the water.
  2. In a medium bowl mix eggs, salt, pepper, 1/2 of Parmesan cheese and 1/2 of garlic powder.
  3. Using a 10" non stick frying pan, put in olive oil, place Dandelions in pan and spread out to cover the entire bottom. Using a salt shaker, salt Dandelions lightly, sprinkle 1/2 of leftover cheese and garlic powder on top of Dandelions. Turn on stove to med-high and fry for 1-2 minute Now the tricky part. For safety, put on a oven mitt, Take a dinner plate and place on top of dandelions, remove from stove and flip over the Dandelions onto plate and re-install into frying pan.
  4. Take mixture and pore on Dandelions starting at the edges and working your way to the center. The "pie" won't be completely covered, that's OK. Let cook for 2-4 minutes, Flip the "pie" over again and top with the remaining ingredients.
