Could Puha be the latest superfood?

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 2:09 pm on 29 November 2016

Kui Hikatangata of the Manukau Institute of Technology has just completed research on Puha as a superfood.

She is  hoping to raise awareness of this indigenous plant, which she says could be a source of nutritious, cost-effective food if it wasn't treated as a weed. 

She's also been collaborating with the head student chef at our culinary school to put a modern twist on traditional dishes featuring Puha.
