Invasive Dandelion Root Espresso with Agroforestry Chocolates
This dish highlights dandelion, which is an invasive species able to survive in the harshest conditions. Both its leaves and roots are edible. In this case, the root is brewed into an espresso-like coffee, given coffee trees are struggling to grow amid rapidly changing conditions in the jungles lining the equator. The coffee is paired with agroforestry-grown chocolate, which is helping to restore degraded jungles.
