Ready to forage? Wong recommends starting with dandelions, which she flash-fries. "They're like popcorn, only better!" she says. "And anyone can find a dandelion."
- 1/4 cup cold water
- 1/2 cup flour
- Vegetable oil (for frying)
- Dandelion blossoms, stems removed
- Salt (to taste)
Lightly stir cold water into the flour until just combined. In a large skillet, heat 1/2"-deep vegetable oil on high. Coat dandelions in the batter, then fry until golden, about 1 minute. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate, salt and serve.
