Steamed Dandelion Greens & Goddess Dressing

Both Stefan and I have eaten wild dandelion greens before. In fact, our former co-apprentice, Anna, from Sisters Hill Farm prepared it for us a few times. She used a tahini based dressing. It was simple and it was good. I’ve adapted her idea here and I cheat a little bit because I use a store-bought dressing. If the Dandelion Greens have been too bitter for your taste, you should try this!


  • Brown Rice
  • 1/4lb Dandelion Greens or more (they cook down)
  • 1 Summer Squash (chopped)
  • 1 Carrot (chopped)
  • 1 Onion (thinly sliced)
  • Goddess Dressing (Annie’s)
  • Goddess Dressing


    Begin by making the rice. This will cook while you’re doing the rest.

    In a large frying pan, sauté the carrot and squash. After about 5 minutes throw in the onion. At this point feel free to add black pepper or whatever you like in a simple stir fry. Remember that it’s eventually getting covered with a tahini based dressing.

    Wash the dandelion greens and chop into large pieces. In a large sauce pan, steam for 3 minutes or until wilty. Remove from heat and drain the water.

    Healthy amount of Dressing

    Fill a bowl with rice. Put the stir fried veggies over it. Top off the pile with a generous portion of steamed dandelion greens and cover it all with a healthy amount of Goddess Dressing. Mix together with a fork and eat.
