Flavor is a Nuttier Version of Spinach

Orach - Red - Atriplex hortensis

Hardy Annual Red Orach is also called Mountain Spinach. The magenta-red leaves will not change color when cooked. Use this nutritious green in salads (small, raw leaves) or take the larger leaves and cook them. The flavor is a nuttier version of spinach. Orach grows well in warm weather when spinach bolts.

Did You Know? Drop a leaf in a pot of cooking rice to make the rice a rosy color.
