Eight Vegan Edible Flower Recipes for Spring

03.20.15

This picture crossed my Pinterest feed yesterday, and now I want to eat all the things with all the flowers.

I am so ready for spring that I want to ingest it. Put warmth in the air and flowers in my belly. Get out of here March, even the dandelions can’t cut through these exhaust-stained snowbanks.

As usual when I put together recipe posts, I have made myself really hungry by ogling so much pretty food. So please just enjoy this little collection of vegan edible flower recipes while I go dig something comparatively disappointing out of the pantry.

Eight Vegan Edible Flower Recipes for Spring Can you even BELIEVE how gorgeous Paper & Stitch’s color blocked chocolate bark with flower petal sprinkles is? I’m not sure I could bring myself to eat a thing of such beauty. No, nevermind, I totally could. Use vegan white chocolate to make this vegan-friendly, then dig in.

Did you think I was joking about the dandelions? The Daily Spud shows how to fry them to a golden crisp and I am more than convinced to go pick weeds. Just swap the egg for a plant-based milk bath for dredging, otherwise completely vegan.

I’ve been wanting to get an ice cream maker because vegan ice cream is boss. This honey coconut milk ice cream with flower topping by A Harmony Healing looks like the perfect excuse to finally do it. Sub agave nectar if you don’t eat honey.

Lilacs are my favorite favorite flower. Now that I know they’re edible, I want to stir Call Me Cupcake’s lilac sugar into every cup of tea.

There’s a raw vegan cake under that bed of jaw-droppingly gorgeous flowers. Hunger intensified. By Green Kitchen Stories.

Sour cherries. Macadamia nuts. Cacao. Rose petals. Yum. Raw rosy rocky road brownies by Ascension Kitchen.

Because nothing says “spring” like a refreshing boozy drink, white wine spritzer with edible flowers by The Flair Exchange.

These Ukrainian preserved rose petals from Healthy Green Kitchen are traditionally used to decorate cookies and fill doughnuts. And now I want to eat my way through Ukraine.

So who else is ancy for skirts and sandals and patios? The birds in our neighborhood seem to think it’s time, but it’s 20º and I still can’t shed my thick winter coat. Somebody please tell me this winter will end someday…
