Wild Greens Bagel

One of my favorite breakfast dishes; a heart-friendly, wild foods/herbal version of the classic toasted bagel - Violet leaves and flowers and chickweed greens with a raw garlic olive oil sauce atop a whole grain bagel. Both chickweed and violets are rich in anti-oxidant vitamins and the violet flowers are colored by bio-flavanoids. Both wild greens also contain soluble fiber (like oatmeal, barley, most beans, prickly pear, okra, etc.), which helps to remove excess cholesterol from the body. I find that liberal olive oil mixed with raw garlic helps to mellow the garlic’s intensity and reduces heat symptoms in the digestive system, such as heartburn or indigestion.
