    MarieL's Note:

    "Quelites" is a Spanish word for "wild greens." We like to cook with edible weeds, and lambs quarters fall into this category. You can look online for more information about how to identify this plant, which you can use much like you use spinach. If you live in the midwestern United States, you probably have these growing in your yard. I'm not sure where my husband got this recipe, but I like it.

      This was my first experience with lambs quarters, and I was VERY unsure how it would turn out... It was DELICIOUS, though! I used green onions instead of leeks, and added a little spinach (I wasn't sure how mild they are). I'm actually getting ready to make this for the second time this week!
