Lamb's quarters is spinach-like plant with names similar to other greens, and is not related to "lamb's lettuce".
Not as sweet nor as juicy as common spinach, wild spinach, also know as lamb's quarter, offers an even greener, earthier, mineral flavor. Some describe the taste of young, wild spinach as reminiscent to asparagus. Producing triangular velvety-textured leaves, the entire plant, including the stems, is edible. Small black edible seeds on the plants are most often not fully developed when wild spinach is harvested and are still encased in tiny green pollen-like balls, which are also edible.
High in vitamin C and rich in riboflavin, one cup of cooked wild spinach provides an excellent source of vitamin A, folate, magnesium, potassium, vitamins E, B6, and thiamine. Wild spinach actually contains substantially more nutrients than cultivated spinach.
