Is prickly amaranth vegan?

Prickly amaranth, also known as spiny amaranth or thorny amaranth, is a leafy green vegetable that belongs to the amaranth family. It is native to tropical regions of the Americas, but is now widely cultivated throughout the world. This plant has a prickly texture due to the small thorns that grow along its stems and leaves, which require careful handling during harvesting and preparation. Prickly amaranth leaves have a slightly bitter and nutty flavor, and can be eaten raw in salads or cooked in soups, stews, or sautés. They are also a good source of vitamins and minerals, such as calcium, iron, and vitamin C, making them a nutritious addition to any diet.

Prickly amaranth is a vegan food ingredient.
