Fava Beans with Cow Parsnip Seed Powder
As a forager with access to large amounts of uniquely fragrant cow parsnip ( Heracleum maximum ), you may be at a loss with how to make use of this wild edible plant. I'll eat a batch or two of the greens when they are young, though they're not something I'd want to eat every day. I far prefer to use the seeds of cow parsnip. They are pungent with celery, citrus peel, rain, and tobacco flavors, and a quality that feels nearly electric on my tongue.
