Ever heard about amaranth viridis or peperomia? Maybe not. But what if I tell you that these wondrous flora may be growing around you? Like these there may be thousands of edible plant varieties growing in the wild around you. Wild greens have always been a part of the traditional food habits but once we shifted to more commercially viable options, they have been forgotten. Today we have someone who is striving to reintroduce them back into the food consumption chain. Shruti Tharayil is a self taught herbalist, who has extensively worked with local groups to reintroduce wild edible plant varieties among the local public.
