Wild Spinach (Chenopodium album) Wild spinach is rich! Packed with protein and omega fatty acids, this one has a seriously satisfying flavor. Lightly wilt or stir fry with other vegetables or use as part of a salad. The flavor is so mild that it can really be paired with any foods.
In the summer, the plant stretches upwards and develops flowers. Eventually it starts to produce seeds which are too crunchy to be enjoyed as a green vegetable but they become an amazing grain once they are mature. Wild Spinach is closely related to quinoa and it offers a resilient source of high quality nutrition.
