In this field to foraging with edible plants, Sergei Boutenko – son of raw-food guru Victoria Boutenko – explains how to safely identify trailside weeds, fruits, and greens, and shares his delicious, nutrient-dense recipes.
This practical guide to plant foraging gives readers the tools to identify, harvest, and prepare wild edible plants. It outlines basic rules for safe wild-food foraging and discusses gathering etiquette, poisonous plants, and conservation. Boutenko also explores the many rewards of eating wild flora, making a compelling case for a local-food diet that includes wild greens.
The majority of the sixty edible plants described in this guide can be found worldwide. More than three hundred color photos make plant identification easy. A chapter containing sixty-seven high-nutrient vegan recipes – including green smoothies, salads and salad dressings, spreads and crackers, main courses, juices, and sweets – will inspire you to follow the trail to radiant health.
