Dandelion Green Soup is a flavorful way to enjoy some healthy dark leafy green vegetables.
We all know we should be eating more dark leafy green vegetables, right? They are loaded with fiber, cartenoids, folate, vitamins C and K plus some iron and calcium for good measure. But the problem with Dandelion Greens is they are one of the more bitter greens. This recipe is a fabulous way to enjoy them.
The recipe comes from The Yul Brynner Cookbook (affiliate link) a thrift store find from my mother. Another great soup recipe from the book is Borscht.

This sounds really tasty. I'm often looking for vegetarian soups and this one would be perfect.
Your soup sounds delicious. How funny! The Yul Brynner cookbook! I have an old Frank Sinatra "celebrity" cookbook that I found in my dad's collection!
I have never had dandelion greens. This soup sounds amazing.
My grandmother and I would go foraging in early spring and dandelions were one of her faves. This brought back so many fond memories.

What a simple and delicious soup! I love the addition of the bit of yogurt! This would be great on a weeknight.

This is so clever! If I can eat my weeds maybe I won't feel so bad about having them!
I have a neighbor who harvests dandelion greens here. I'll have to accompany her to make this.
