  • 100 g gram flour batter chickpea
  • ¼ tsp mixed herbs

  • Pinch mixed herbs
  • Pinch of sugar
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 tbsp of balsamic vinegar

Instructions

Method:

  • Make batter by adding 100g gram flour with a little water, and mix until you have a thick consistency, a bit like custard. Add herbs to the batter (leave to stand for 10-30 mins before using).
  • Wipe the comfrey leaves through the batter, then deep fry them for 1 min in the rape seed oil. Drain, then place 2 fritters on top of each salad, and garnish with daisy flower heads.

Method

  • Mix up the wild greens, mixed herbs, and seeds in a bowl, then distribute evenly on 4 plates.
  • In a cup, add the sugar, oil and vinegar and mix well. Then drizzle a tbsp over salad on each plate.
