Obviously I am now a little obsessed after having tried Ground Elder for the first time this weekend. I figured a meat free Monday wouldn’t be a bad thing hence I made these patties. I have a tendency to get a little obsessed. For example when I started making my SeedBread (Frökex) I had it at least once a day with a hard boiled egg and some Swedish Caviar (this is not as fancy as it sounds but cod roe in a tube and salty and tasty… contains quite a lot of sugar but hey I felt it was worth it!) for about 3 months. The last one I had I nearly threw back up… I think I had overdosed on hardboiled eggs and caviar, now 5 months later I can eat them again. So as the ground elder is getting tougher I will ensure I don’t go too crazy.
