White Campion (Silene latifolia) White Campion is a dioecious plant, meaning it has male and female reproductive parts in separate individuals. The parts are visible on the beautiful white flower held within an inflated bladder.
Leaves: The tender young leaves are commonly eaten in Spain, usually sautéed or boiled and added to stews, omelettes or eaten with rice. Try the classic dish of stewed chickpeas and White Campion leaves. The meatiness of the leaves makes this vegetarian dish deep, rich and nourishing.
Flowers: Despite their incredible form, the flavor of the flower is rather mild yet meaty making them easy to use to increase the aesthetics of a dish without overpowering it.
