Dandelion Greens with a Kick

Recipe by:  TTV78 on

"Dandelion greens are one of my favorite bitters! They're not for everyone, but I enjoy their unique flavor.  I decided to try them sauteed instead of in a salad and it was a huge hit!  Makes good use of those dandelions in the yard or you can usually find the greens at eh grocery or Asian market."


1 teaspoon salt

1 pound dandelion greens, torn into 4 inch pieces

1 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 tablespoon butter

1/2 onion, thinly sliced

1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

2 cloves garlic, minced

salt and ground black pepper to taste

1 tablespoon grated parmesan cheese (optional)


Soak dandelion greens in a large bowl of cold water with 1 teaspoon salt for 10 minutes. Drain

Bring large pot of water to a boil with 1 teaspoon salt.  Cook greens until tender, 3 to 4 minutes.  Drain and rinse with cold water until chilled.

Heat olive oil and butter in a large skillet over medium heat; cook and stir onion and red pepper flakes until onion is tender, about 5 minutes.  Stir in garlic until garlic is fragrant, about 30 seconds more.  Increase heat to medium high and add dandelion greens.  Continue to cook and stir until liquid is evaporated, 3 to 4 minutes.  Season with salt and black pepper. 

Sprinkle greens with Parmesan cheese to serve.
