The Buzziest Pantry Upgrade

Pollen is Enemy #1 come spring, but eaten in moderation, it's a nutrient-dense vegetarian protein source that some say can help build immunity. It holds its own in the flavor department, too: mild and slightly sweet, with a floral undertone and a soft, chalky texture.

To make the most of the habit, we turned to a trustworthy arbiter of good health and good taste: celebrated raw chef Sarma Melngailis. Her two New York City restaurants, One Lucky Duck and Pure Food and Wine, bring a creative spin to plant-based food and drink — one where nutrition is just icing on the raw vegan cake. Sarma began consuming bee pollen as a supplement about 11 years ago, and now confesses to actually "craving" it (we hear that!). Read on to find out how she gets her fix — and why you ought to do the same.
