Lamb quarters is a very important crop in northern India but in the USA it is often seen as a weed. This leafy vegetable comes from the Amaranthaceae family and a common name that it also goes by is goosefeet. Occasionally people may call it pigweed, however pigweed is a different plant and has several varieties that are edible. Lamb quarters has a similar taste and consistency to that of spinach; it goes well with salads, steamed vegetables and/or a nice piece of steak.

This leafy vegetable can be cooked by steaming or simply by stir frying it with other vegetables. Garlic is a nice complimentary flavor that goes well with a little bit of salt to pack it with extra flavor.
