Foraged dinner...

Little Reu and I disappeared off to the end of the road to forage some dock leaves this morning .. We have a local foraging spot that sadly up until recently was over flowing with edible goodies until a local builder bought the land and cut down the lot .. To say I was disappointed was an understatement.. But he has done nothing with the land and the edibles are slowly making their way back ..Sneakily we gathered dock leaves and ran back home to make a dock and potato crust tart ..Frying off gently one onion and a clove of garlic in oil in a pan then add 1 large grated potato , then after they have coloured add in your washed and chopped dock leaves ,about a cupful and just allow them to wilt before pouring the mixture into a suitable oven proof pie or casserole dish..In a separate bowl combine 6 eggs , a cup of milk , nutmeg and salt and pepper to taste and a cupful of grated cheddar cheese or similar mix that all together and pour the mixture over the top of your greens , if you fancy you can sprinkle some Parmesan on the top of that then pop in the oven for about 20 mins until the top is cheesy golden .. Then enjoy xx oh ... And I do have permission to use the land xx
