New Greens to Power Up Your Salad
Twenty years ago, San Francisco–based chefs brought mâche (a.k.a. lamb’s lettuce) seeds home from France and introduced its mild, nutty flavor to American restaurant patrons. Now it’s a Whole Foods staple.
A one-cup serving delivers 80% of your daily requirement of folate, which helps prevent certain birth defects and keeps your heart healthy. It also packs 2 grams of filling fiber, 4 milligrams of iron (needed for forming red blood cells), and more than 250 milligrams of heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids, Zuckerbrot says.
Prep tip: Rinse mâche briefly to avoid damaging its delicate leaves.
