Duckweed tastes great

1 post in this topic

Hi all,

Last Time at home my wife had brought some Duckweed (wolffia arrhiza my best guess) out of the northeast of Thailand and was very happy. She told me excited its hard to get and expensive.

I have tried the soup she made even it was looking more than disgusting and had also 'some' smell that suits not really an European nose..  But surprisingly it was pretty tasteful and as I took a spoonful purged the broth off it even did remind me a bit like watercress (kind off) but it actually didn't taste that bad.

A small amount we tried to introduce into our system but was gone. It seems a bit sensible to changes even its considered a weed. May be out crays and Tilapias also did a good job and took whatever came in reach.

Does anyone agree that Duckweed might be having a potential to become a new top range food supply for humans around the world. In Thailand it is definitively considered a luxury and almost not available anymore. A pest that gets extinguished over there how strange that sounds.
