WARRIGAL GREENS SPINACH (Tetragonia tetragonoides)
Aboriginal name(s) Warrigal (Dharug language, meaning “wild”)
You can use Warrigal Greens the way you’d use spinach, chard, silverbeet and bok choy. Like with spinach, the leaves are rich in oxalates, so should be blanched or cooked before eating. Warrigal Greens are Australia’s answer to English spinach.
Lemon myrtle (Backhousia citriodora)
Lemon myrtle, also know as Sweet Verbena, has traditionally been used by indigenous Australians for cooking and medicinal purposes. The oil has extremely high citral purity and is considered to be higher than lemongrass. It makes an excellent alternative for lemon flavouring in any dish, especially where you want to avoid the acidity of real lemon juice. Growing in an aquaponic system, they can easily be pruned to size, including Bachhousia anisata (aniseed scented).
