Dandelion Soup

The other day I decided I wanted to try and make dandelion soup. K and I spent the morning collecting dandelions from the yard.
We chopped up lots of veggies to add to the soup including these beautiful purple potatoes!
To take the bitterness out of the dandelions I boiled and drained them twice.
I fried the flower buds with butter and onions and added them to the soup.
Here is the soup all finished and ready for K to try. I have to say he wasn't a huge fan, but hey he's in an "I hate soup" phase at the moment. :)
