"By fall, there is a second harvest of lambsquarters. Not the leaves this time, but the seeds, which have a nice flavor and can be used in smoothies, soups, scrambled eggs... use your imagination. This is the seed smoothie I made today."
Rinse lambsquarters seeds in a fine-mesh strainer. Drain.
Combine rinsed seeds, water, pear, apple, beet tops and stems, honey, and ginger in a high-powered blender. Blend slowly until chunks are smaller. Increase speed to high and blend until smooth and creamy.
To harvest the seeds from the mature plant in the fall, just strip the seeds and small leaves from each stem. One large lambsquarters plant will yield about a quart of seeds. Store in the refrigerator and rinse just before use.
You can substitute ice for a portion of the water if desired.
