New Zealand Spinach (Warrigal Greens)
Tetragonia teragonioides (Warigal Greens or New Zealand Spinach), is another bush tucker plant which is popular in restaurants which serve bush tucker foods. You would pay a premium price for a dish containing this, so grow your own.
It is a ‘juicy’ plant the leaves of which need to be blanched before eating. It is used in dishes in which spinach or silver beet would be used. Just make sure of your identification before trying any of the native plants as foods.
It seems to be a hardy plant for areas without frost. It is salt tolerant. Propagate by seed or cuttings.
Also take care that plants are not growing in or near areas that have been sprayed with chemicals! Friends had looked forward to a feast of field mushrooms last week. Having cooked them they could not eat them as they could pick the taste of some chemical in them. Others possibly would not have been noticed the flavour except that these folk are ex farmers.
