Helsinki Wildfoods' Finnish veggie products, such as nettle, goutweed and dandelion are great alternatives for cultivated greens such as spinach. They can be used in several ways, both as main ingredients in cooking or to enhance the nutrient content and flavour as herbs with any dish. Their soft and mellow taste is perfect for pestos, stews, green smoothies, sauces, soups, breads, and pancakes. The pristine, clean nordic growth environment gives Finnish veggies a velvety and pure aroma that differs from their foreign siblings.
Finnish folklore tells inspiring storied of Finnish veggies and their many uses. While nettle was used to increase stamina and prevent baldness, dandelion was traditionally used as a detoxifying herb to cleanse the liver and blood. And as goutweed's name tends to give away, the weed was traditionally used to heal gout.
