First of all a big big thank you to my dear colleague R. who introduced me to this super tasty flower/herb called 'Daslook'! This morning the following happened:
She walked up to me this morning with a flower in her hand..got on her kneels and..haha KIDDING..imagine HAHA!! No but really..so she walked up to me with a huge smile on her face and a flower in her hand saying..’try eating this Eva! It tastes really good!!’. As I was super curious.. I immediately ate the whole flower! R. was looking at me with this face like.. and?? Well...???What do you think???
Like..Oh My God..Let me tell you..uh WOW! What a surprisingly tasty flavour came out of this small flower!! It tastes a lot like spring onions or chives..but better!! I find the look of this herb so much more appealing for the eyes, their just super cute these small mini flowers don’t you think?!
I think that decorating your food with flowers is a total must.. especially when you live in Holland.. land of the most gorgeous flowers right?!!
Besides the super tasty flavour the ‘Daslook’ gives it's also MEGA MEGA healthy!! I still can’t believe you can get this for free, what a great gift from nature!

So duh..of course, for lunch I made myself an omelette, using some celery-salt (my newest addiction by the way..) some freshly grinded pepper.. and then these spiced up flowers! Check the exact recipe down below..
- 3 eggs (of which I only used 1 eggyolk)
- Some celerysalt
- Some pepper
- Some Daslook :D
Well this ain’t really rocketscience, but I what I did was taking some of the flowers into the omelette mix and I added some later on to sprinkle it on top of the omelette.. MMMM this was such a great tasty lunch!!
TIP: This herb is also great to make your own fresh pesto out of it! I’m definitely going to try this and let you know how it turns out!
R. also told me that now it’s the season for this herb to grow at its best..little secret is.. there seems to be loads and loads of this herb at the Oosterpark. I know for sure what I’m going to do this weekend.. fill myself a bag with these little fellas. I will keep them good in the freezer, this way I can enjoy this herb longer
Hope you can find these flowers too and add them to your dishes! Have a great day!
