AGRETTO / FRIAR'S BEARD

AGRETTO OR FRIAR'S BEARD (SALE BY WEIGHT) This succulent annual plant forms small bushes that can grow up to 70 cm in height; it has leaves and stem generally tending to red. It produces small flowers that form inflorescences and which sprout directly from the stem, at the base of the leaves. Agretti or friar's beard are mainly used in the Mediterranean diet, particularly in Italy. The best way to appreciate their flavor is to steam them or boil them and season them with extra virgin olive oil and lemon. Excellent as an appetizer or as a side dish (the combination with salmon is highly recommended), these vegetables are readily available and equally versatile in the kitchen. With pasta, in omelettes or simply cooked with garlic, tomato and anchovies: there are so many ways to cook these vegetables and enhance their taste. The flavor, however, is not the only trump card with a monk's beard. This plant, in fact, is particularly good: rich in mineral salts and purifying properties, it is an excellent ally in diets. Refreshing and slightly toned, thanks to the abundance of chlorophyll, it helps to reduce cholesterol and triglyceride levels and is particularly recommended for anemics.
