    Plantain leaves can be eaten raw or steamed, are awesome raw in salads, blended into green smoothies, especially the younger ones. The roots can be juiced or added to soups and stews, the young flower spikes can be eaten as a steamed vegetable, and the seeds gathered and mixed into breads and protein drinks, parched and sprinkled on salads, or ground to flour. The whole plant can be made into a tea for drinking as well and is tasty when sweetened with honey.

    Plantain, Plantago major. BAD WEED. However, it has anti-bacterial, antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties. You can crush it and hold it on a mosquito bite and it stops the itch. It is a tough perennial that is had to pull out of the ground, and that is why I don't like it.
