Healthy Dish For The Weak: Fiddleheads.

Only by request... I am posting a recipe for a seasonal vegetable that I had for dinner.


  • 10 ounces of fiddleheads, washed and with the brown edge of the stem cut off
  • 1 small red onion, sliced into long strips
  • 2 tsp olive oil

  1. Boil some water in a pot.
  2. Drop rinsed fiddleheads in and let cook for a minute.
  3. Drain fiddleheads and rinse with COLD water.
  4. Heat oil in saute pan.
  5. Throw onion in and cook for three minutes.
  6. Toss fiddleheads in and cook for another five minutes.

And you're done. I don't use salt in this. But I did add a pinch of crushed red pepper towards the end of the cooking.

They taste like Spring!!!
