Gratin with Feta and Goutweed, Gratin Fêta et Herbes Aux Goutteux


The Nature. My parents are living in a countryside in southern Finland. After many months in a big city, I’m feeling peaceful with all this light green color around me.

I have decided to learn more about our wild herbs, villiyrtti, our super foods. These herbs have a high nutritional value and you can find them in our forest near by.  Someone wrote that collecting wild herbs is like meditation in nature. You concentrate to look what you are needing, your hands work and all other thoughts what we so easily have disappears.


Vuohenputki, Goutweed , Herbe aux goutteaux consist naturally lot of vitamin C, magnesium and iron. Collect the young, light green colored leafs. You can easily replace your salad with a goutweed, the young leafs have a nice strong taste and higher nutrition value than a normal salad. You can also use it instead of spinach.


I found an idea for this recipe in a book Hulluna Hortaan (Raija ja Jouko Kivimetsä).
