Ok, so I’m starting to get better at holding the camera by myself and using iMovie to edit these videoblogs. This video highlights how to make your own wild greens powder, or superfood. You can purchase Superfoods at your local co-op, health food store, or supplement shop, but this gives you a start on how to do it yourself. This is an easy thing to do at home, and if you don’t have a dehydrator as demonstrated in the video, simply place greens on newspapers, old window screens, etc. Just make sure they are good and dry, grind in blender or coffee grinder and store in an airtight container. You will really boost your nutrition by adding a tablespoonful to pasta sauce, smoothies, or noodles as demonstrated by Chef Bob in this video. Start to notice what wild edible greens are abundant around your home.

In mixing bowl thoroughly mix flour and dried wild greens powder. Make a well in the center and mix in remaining ingredients, working from the center, using your fingers. Knead until dough comes together. Roll into ball and let dough rest for at least 1/2 hour. Roll out dough and cut into pasta. Bring water, olive oil and salt to a rolling boil and submerge pasta for roughly 9 minutes. Strain and serve immediately.
