Wild Spinach, also known as Lambsquarters, is an annual plant in the Amaranth family that occurs in sunny disturbed soils throughout Europe and North America.
A wild cousin of both quinoa and spinach, lambsquarters has a mild nutty flavor and a somewhat delicate texture. A nutritional powerhouse, it is very rich in Vitamins A, C and K as well as calcium, manganese and riboflavin. It can be added to salads, tossed into stir-fries, or blended into savory soups, sauces or stews.
Latin Name: Chenepodium Album
