Today I cook a simple pasta dish from the vegetarian Belgian cookbook La cucina verde. Together with fresh vegetables, black pasta and salicornia, it forms a nice dinner with lots of color!
Salicornia, sea asparagus, pickleweed and marsh samphire. All names for the same plant. A plant without leaves but with “fleshy” stalks divided into smaller stalks. Each stalk reminding very much of a claw. In American, the veggie is called “chicken claws” for a reason … Today’s salty tastebud is Salicornia.
