lambs quarters

http://www.veggiegardeningtips.com/wp-content/uploads/2006/05/Lambs-Quarter.jpg

How meaty does that sound? Lambs quarters... might as well say chicken pieces it all sounds the same. Why is this wild herb named 'lambs quarters' it is also known as 'goose foot' which seems more appropriate, it looks like a goose foot. My grandmother 'turned me on' to this weed when I was a kid. I eat it like I eat all the other wild things I learned about. You should too. Just look around!



look, its an ugly person kissing an ugly person - obviously love is everywhere! I love -love.


I made spinach pies with this, lambs quarters. I took a bunch of the veggie and sauteed it with some garlic in olive oil and salt. After it was a little wilted I let it cool. Cooled I mixed in some ricotta and parmesean and more black pepper. This was the filling that I put in some thawed and rolled out puff pastry and then baked till they looked like this, these have cooled, and they were'nt the best batch.

I've never heard of this stuff- what's the flavor similar to?

b: it is so mild and so flavorful all at the same time. Its like eating a perfect peanut or hot dog or something at the same time...its a tasty leaf to say the least, the one with magenta in the middle is even better.

Mandi said...

You cracked me up with the ugly person kissing and ugly person comment!!!!! love is in the air, la la la la la la love is in the air - ok now Im going weird - have a great week!!!

Slip said...

I've eaten it all my life but it is bland almost tasteless.I like greens with an edge like collards. In my mind fat back and collards should be married.

doggybloggy said...

mandi: it cracked me up to type it...

slip: it is mild and compared to collards it is tasteless and that would be some wedding!

Anette said...

Is the taste a bit like spinach? (oh I remember, you didn't like spinach did you) It sounds very nice. the green and the cheese together in som kind of pastry? Its a bit like spinach and feta in pastry: also very tasty!

doggybloggy said...

anette: I love spinach I just dont like it RAW

Bina said...
