Portulaca oleracea might be considered as weed by most people in America. But it is served as edible vegetable in Asian countries.
It has a slight sour taste. When cooked, it has similar sliminess like okra. So I usually chop it up and add to pancakes.
2/3 cup whole milk
1 teaspoon oil
1/4 cup of multi whole grain flour (I grind my own multi grain flour:)
1/4 cup of all purpose flour
1 handful of portulaca oleracea
freshly ground black pepper
salt to taste
sriracha sauce (optional)
Rinse the portulaca oleracea under cold running water. Drain well and chop coarsely.
In a medium bowl, add egg, milk, oil, multi grain flour, flour, salt and pepper.
Whisk everything together and add chopped portulaca olerace
Mix well again with a whisk
When the bottom side is golden brown, flip the pancake over. Cook until the other side is golden brown too
I usually make 4 to 5 pancakes out of the ingredients listed above. They are perfect for a quick and nutritious breakfast.
Sriracha sauce pairs well with almost everything! O(∩_∩)O~
