"Yes, you can eat garlic mustard, but it's a powerfully stinky and your skin and breath will smell like it for 24 hours after ingesting. If you want to eat it, I suggest you pull up the whole plant, harvest the leaves and throw the rest in the garbage. You might be saving a toothwort butterfly or sugar maple seedling in the process."


This is not true! Actually the young plants are quite tasty and can be eaten raw or cooked like spinach. It will not make your breath and skin smell for 24 hrs. Discard as the article suggests or burn it to prevent further spread. Here are a couple of ideas for eating.

Creamed garlic mustard
garlic mustard pesto
raw in salad

Use only young leaves or the micro green shoots for best flavor.
