Hostas AKA Urui Recipes And How To Eat Them

Those lovely hostas in your yard can become a vegetable on your table. In this country we don’t eat them much but in Japan they are called Urui and are grown as a food crop.
If you have hostas in your yard, did you know you could eat them? They are edible and Barbara Price tells you how to eat the an shares a reduced balsamic vinaigrette to serve over them. Also The daily English show shares in their video three different ways to cook and serve them. This is a neat way to forage right in your own yard.

If you don’t have them ,maybe you should plant a lot of them. Hostas come back every year with no effort on your part and now that you know you can eat it like a vegetable it seems like a good idea to plant loads of hostas. Another plus to hostas is that they love the shade, how many of your other veggies will produce every year in the shade?
