July 24 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm$10
Less well-known than the bean trees and cactus foods, berries, greens, herbs, and flowers add unique flavors, textures, and health benefits to your diet. Wolfberry, hackberry, and canyon hackberry offer sweet and bittersweet treats. Summer and winter greens and herbs (mustard, LQ, chickweed, malva, peppergrass, verdolagas, amaranth, aloysia, etc), and seasonal flowers (desert willow, chuparosa, palo verde, ironwood, ocotillo, etc) provide pungent and colorful additions to foods, and seeds (chia, amaranth, panic grass, plantago, etc) add crunchy protein and visual interest. All will be up for discussion. Try verdolagas salsa with seasonal ingredients.
