Lambs quarters is considered by many to be a noxious weed. Those poor people don't realize what they are missing. It is one of the most nutritious wild edibles there are. A hearty, fast growing annual that has almost world wide distribution. Lots to learn about this one.

It is so nutritious and hearty that many people have begun to plant it. Amazon has a seed packet that includes seeds from this useful plant. Check out the video for more information about this plant.



I really like lambsquarters as part of a salad. This plant can have oxalic acid in it so raw consumption should be in small quantities. Cooked or steamed the flavor is very similar to spinach, at least to me.
