What's 8 times as nutritious as the spud & sweet like coconut? The native yam. Nutty, starchy and rather potato-like, yam daisy or murnong is the edible roots grown from a yellow dandelion-type stalk. Wiped out by pasturing animals, this native root vegetable is now making a comeback to rival the common potato. #RecipeForLife
