Fiddleheads; The Next Superfood?

They’re back! Fiddleheads, a seasonal delicacy with an A+ in Nutrition! Could they be the next superfood? 

At only 20 calories per 1/2 cup serving Fiddleheads have twice the antioxidant content of blueberries are a source of omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids, high in beta-carotene, contain iron, fibre, vitamin A, C and are rich in potassium.

Top them with fresh herbs and lemon juice or enjoy them with any of the following:

  • Wild Rice
  • Quinoa
  • As a side to smoked salmon, chicken, beef or turkey.
  • Add them to your stir-fry for dinner.
  • Add them into an omelet for breakfast.

But my all time favorite is having them on their own with olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper.

NOTE

* Fiddleheads should never be eaten raw. They should be thoroughly cooked before eating. Click here for Food Safety Tips for Fiddleheads – Health Canada and find out how to properly cook them and tips for avoiding food-borne illnesses.
