Thrown in with a bit of oil, salt and pepper to taste, I cooked it until the leaves turned a darker green color (spinach green).
Daughter #1 tried it and said it smells and tastes like spinach. I don’t think so. I think it tastes like lambs quarters, though it does have the texture, color and smell of spinach.
This is a clean, organic green that grows everywhere in NW Arkansas.
The cost of organic spinach at Ozark Natural Foods is currently:
$6.99 lb in bulk
$2.49 by bunch/bunches are from 1-1.5 lbs.
Lambs quarters nutrition information
High in vitamin C, rich in riboflavin, one cup of cooked lambs quarters provides an excellent source of vitamin A, folate, magnesium, potassium, vitamins E, B6, and thiamine. Substantially more nutrients than cultivated spinach.
