I found a chickweed recipe at this website called Herbmentor I thought I would share. You can click on this link to see this recipe .....................

~~Chickweed With Pasta ~~
8 cups of chickweed leaves and stems
2 or 3 small cloves of garlic
2 tsp of olive oil ~ I used chickweed olive oil
2 tsp. lemon juice ~ or more to suit your taste
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp of freshly ground black pepper
Red pepper flakes to your taste
Cooked Pasta ~ I had some leftover spaghetti noodles I used , since I didn't want them to go to waste.
I washed my chickweed , although the recipe said you don't have to , mine was a little dirty since it's just starting to sprout out and lying very close to the ground. I threw it into a small saucepan and added a tbsp of water and minced garlic, cook over med. heat for about 5 - 10 minutes , until wilted. In a separate bowl I added the 2 tsp of chickweed flavored olive oil I have on hand , sea salt , freshly ground pepper , lemon juice and some red pepper flakes , once the chickweed is ready , put in bowl and stir to coat chickweed. Serve over pasta , with freshly shredded Parmesan cheese and more cracked black pepper or red pepper flakes to your taste. This recipe was very good , it'll be on my menu regularly , since chickweed season is comimg soon.
