Commonly known as Chinese spinach, this vegetable is not hard to recognize given its striking round-shaped leaves which green with a bright red spot at the centre. Not only is red-leaved Amaranth flavoursome, but it is also inexpensive and can be grown quite easily in your garden. It is considered one of the world’s healthiest vegetables and exceptionally nutritious.  Both the leaves and stems are edible and delicious.
