Edible leaves from the linden tree

Edible wild plants have a special part in our diet. Since they grow everywhere in large quantities throughout the year and are very, very green, they are suitable for every raw kitchen. It is a superfood, containing 3-4 times more minerals and vitamins than grown plants. Because of that, they have a very strong taste, and it is difficult to eat them separately or in large quantities.

Well, the Linden’s young leaves are different; you can eat a whole bowl of them. The edible leaves are sweet and soft.

More information about the Linden tree you find in one of our previous posts.

300-500g (10.5-17.5 ounces) of bright green (young) Linden leaves
