This low growing perennial herb gets its name from the mushroomy flavoured leaves. The leaves and stems are eaten raw in salads or they can be cooked as a green vegetable in stir fries. The leaves are rich in chlorophyll. Leaves contain 3% protein, they are also very high in calcium, a richer source than most foods.
