Cactus is abundant in calcium and other nutrition

I have no idea how it's best eaten, but that sounds like a good addition to a regular diet. Added to soup, stew or curry (if it's ok to cook it without killing off the nutrients) or blended in a smoothie or mixed with a liquid for a healthy drink. Good call Kasugai.

I've eaten cactus in several dishes (soup, stews, tacos) and can confirm. "Nopal", as they call it in Mexico, is tasty, cheap, and highly nutritious.

I feel sorry for the cactus in my garden. It’s on tonight’s menu after reading this.

In Mexico maybe, this this Japan. The special "Japanese cactus premium" will be added

As fish moratoriums are the only future, this is a nice story for local resilience and increasing variety. I'll have to try it

Here in California we eat a lot of different cuisines, including Mexican, which includes cactus. Cactus is one of my favorite dishes. Very tasty, and very healthy.

I sure hope the chefs remove the spines.
