  6. Anita and Tamara;
    Actually, in recent years, purslane has turned into one of the favorite veggies of chefs, including New York. In Turkey winter time spinach time and in summer, purlane comes first as a veggie! I also make a purslane salad with yogurt(which is very famous here, they serve it with Turkish raki) and love it in my omelet! Best if used fresh.
    When we compare it with spinach, purslane has more beta-carotene than spinach as well as high levels of magnesium and potassium.I think it is also more tasty.xoxo
