I have a lot of Ground Elder or Kirskål as it is called in Swedish in my garden. A LOT! I know you can eat it but haven’t done so until today. As it is now June I figured the ground elder is not at its most tender (I havenot idea if its true I just know it has now been there for many weeks!) so I cooked it before eating.
Leftovers with Ground Elder
I had in my fridge some leftovers:
Leftover taco mince
Leftover chopped up tomatoes
Left over Walnut Pesto
- 1 tbsp of olive oil
- One spring onion (or other little bit of normal/red/garlic onion like thing you have in the back of the fridge)
- Handful of ground elder/kirskål
- 2 cm chunk of courgette/zucchini
- salt and pepper
- 1/2 tsp of chilli flakes
- 2 eggs
Fry the chopped spring onion, tomatoes, ground elder in the olive oil. After a few minutes add the mince, salt and pepper to taste as well as the chilli flakes. When the mince is warmed through add two beaten eggs. When the egg is cooked serve with a dollop of Walnut Pesto.
Serve with a dollop of leftover pesto!
