We pass by it every day. It can be found from the forests to the sidewalks in the toughest of environments. It’s probably in your garden right now. It’s purslane, an ancient leafy green with some of the highest concentrations of nutrients in the plant world that has commonly been seen as a weed here in the United States. Originally found throughout the Old World, the plant was most popular in the Eastern Mediterranean region where it has been used for thousands of years in salads and a variety of other dishes.
Purslane is very hardy, growing in practically any environment. It can easily survive during droughts or in hot environments, often thriving when other plants die out from the heat. It can grow in fertile gardens to the poorest of soils. It bursts through rock driveways and sidewalks, expanding where other plants can’t survive.
Yet, despite its hardiness, it is amazingly nutritious. It contains more omega-3 fatty acids than any other leafy vegetable and contains remarkable amounts of vitamins and minerals. It is so nutritious that Michael Pollan, famed food writer, has called it one of the two most nutritious plants on the planet. It can be used as a leafy green in salads, stir-fried, or cooked as a replacement for spinach. It is a highly nutritious and widely available wild edible that urban preppers can easily take advantage of.

Outside of its value for bartering, the card’s lightweight design makes it easily transportable, and the back features a photo of the wild edible, helping you identify the plant in the wild.
It has been historically used as a medicinal treatment for insect bites or stings, intestinal problems, and internal bleeding. It has also been shown by clinical studies to combat oral lichen planus. Purslane is even helpful as a companion plant for your other crops! It can provide ground cover to create a humid microclimate for nearby plants, stabilizing ground moisture and helping other plants, like corn, extend its root system further down in tough soil.
