These might be growing in your yard, but don’t disregard this plant as a weed! Dandelion greens contain a host of health benefits. Only use from your yard if you are 100% organic, and of course, rinse well!

1 lb dandelion greens
2 tbsp butter or ghee
2 cloves garlic, minced
Sea salt, to taste
Pepper, to taste

Rinse the dandelion greens and pat dry on paper towels.  Trim off the roots.
Melt the butter in a skillet over medium-low heat.
Add the greens.  While stirring and coating in the butter, add the garlic.  The greens will wilt quickly, so don’t walk away from the stove.  When the greens have reduced in size, remove from heat and add the salt and pepper.  Serve immediately.
