A plant rich in vitamins C, B and A. It contains a lot of minerals, including iron, calcium, magnesium, potassium and copper. It is a source of fibre, omega-3 and 6 fatty acids as well as folic and pantothenic acids. In addition, and perhaps above all, it is an extremely tasty plant. Which fits perfectly with vegetables, sauces, soups or as a topping for young potatoes and sandwiches.
You can eat practically the whole plant, its leaves, flowers, and fresh or dried seeds. Which have a sweet, slightly anise flavor and aroma. It is best to always use fresh shoots and flowers.
