Foraged Plantain Buds on Toast

Plantain buds, also known as ribwort or plantago, are abundant in the UK throughout spring and summer. This ‘weed’ tastes just like mushrooms! Watch Chef Josephine Marchandise create a delicious and simple recipe using both the buds and leaves, inspired by mushrooms on toast.


Step 1. Chop your plantain buds and mix with garlic

Step 2. Add some tahini and some water to create the sauce

Step 3. Chop the leaves of the plant as if it were spinach

Step 4. Add the topping to a piece of toast. Enjoy!

When foraging, always be 100% sure of the identity of your plant before consuming.
