"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."

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Rinse lambsquarters seeds in a fine-mesh strainer. Drain.
  2. 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.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • 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.
