Fiddlehead Ferns with Pine Nuts, Pecorino, and Lemon Zest
Fiddlehead ferns have a slightly nutty flavor when cooked, and so I thought fiddleheads, toasted pine nuts, and salty, slightly funky pecorino would be a good combination. Lemon zest brightens things up a bit, and a drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil at the end seals in all the flavors. Click here to see Make Dinner More Interesting — 8 Great Side Dish Recipes.

Forager's Pasta: Fiddlehead Fern and Nameko Linguine
Fiddleheads are typically par-boiled to tenderize them and to remove some of the bitterness of the raw shoots. One of the most popular ways to prepare fiddleheads after par-boiling is to sauté them, often with garlic, onions, and lemon. I find fiddleheads cooked this way are excellent tossed with pasta. So I created a simple dish with wild nameko mushrooms and fiddleheads... a kind of "forager's pasta." This dish is intensely satisfying, even for meat eaters.

These are not my favorite vegetable but when I see them fresh I can't resist buying some. I like garlic with them and added onions. The Pine nuts are optional. You may like to sprinkle on some Parmesan cheese . Clean them well before using in cold water. I like my veggies still crisp so I suggest 5 minutes steaming but if you like your veggies soft the steam for 12 minutes. Fiddleheads are very healthy loaded with Iron.

Fiddlehead Fern is picked in the spring when they just pop out of the ground and are still curled looking like the head of a violin. They grow in the northeastern part of the USA and in eastern Canada. Being in Nevada I never expected to see these luscious delicacies again but you can see I was wrong. Trader Joe's had them and I grabbed a package very quickly. The recipe is one I just put together with what I had available. Didn't want to take the time to go to the store for anything else. You can buy sundried tomatoes packed in oil... yum.
