1 cup dandelion roots
4 cups cubed potatoes
2 cups dandelion leaves
2 cups onion, diced
2 or more cloves garlic
2 tablespoons vinegar
Salt to taste

Clean and chop dandelion roots and cook with potatoes in water to cover. Meanwhile, saute onion 5 minutes, add chopped dandelion leaves, cover and cook over low heat until potatoes in other pot are done.
