Also known as "Lamb's Lettuce," mâche has been cultivated in France since the 17th century. This delicious, tiny, dark green plant with a sweet, nutty flavor is one of the most nutritious salad greens around! Packed full of vitamin C, beta-carotene and Omega 3s, the soft, buttery leaves also provide plenty of antioxidants. Plus mâche provides nearly a third more iron than a comparable amount of spinach. To truly appreciate this delicacy, many suggest to serve mâche the traditional European way: lightly dressed with a simple vinaigrette. The French also like to add chopped, hard-boiled eggs or sliced roasted beets. Mâche is good mixed with sharper-tasting greens like chicories. You can also braising it lightly as you would spinach.
