Have a Good Foraging Book and Guide!
I use the book, “Northeast Foraging” as a guidebook, specific to my region. (I affiliate link to this book in the recipe card at the end of the post)
I suggest you also ask people who are experts in foraging in person to give you 2nd option when foraging.
Never eat wild food that you are not 100% sure is safe to eat! Remember, always safety first!

- Heat oil and garlic in a wok over medium-high heat. When the garlic and oil are heated, add the prepared purslane and stir to coat. Add the soy sauce and any other optional desired seasonings and stir to combine. Adjust the heat lower, if the Wok is getting too hot. Cook the purslane until the stems are tender. When it's done, plate to serve and enjoy!
- Spice and flavor suggestions: I tried to keep this recipe super simple but I also think a dash of white pepper, sesame oil, and Chinese 5 spice would also go really well with this dish (I have an Amazon affiliate linked to them below).
- Yield: The serving Size is 4 ounces per serving, this recipe makes 1 serving.
