List of leaf vegetables

Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of vegetables which are grown primarily for the consumption of their leafy parts, either raw or cooked. Many plants with leaves that are consumed in small quantities as a spice like oregano, or for medicinal purposes like lime, or used in infusions like tea, are not included in this list.


Humans have used leaves as food since time immemorial. Different types of leaves, depending from the place and the season, were part of the human diet since prehistoric times. Traces of edible leaves have been found in ancient Egyptian archaeological sites. Some edible leaves were historically documented in ancient Greece, in ancient Rome, in ancient Sri Lanka and in the Middle Ages.[1] With the passing of the centuries many of those traditional leaf vegetables have been replaced by leaves that are more tender, have a more neutral taste or that are considered more refined. The leaves that were part of ancient traditional diets are still to be found in the wild, sometimes at the edge of cultivated fields, or near abandoned homesteads. Generally they are found not far from inhabited places, indicating that they are the vestiges of ancient cultivated plants.[2]

There are places, like the Italian region of Liguria, where it is customary to go to the fields in spring to gather different kinds of edible leaves. These are later boiled to prepare preboggion, a local green mixture, that is generally used to stuff ravioli-like pasta. Also in Greece the tradition of eating a great variety of different leafy greens gathered in the fields has been preserved. These are eaten as a dish called horta.


Moderate quantities of edible leaf vegetables that are proportionate to amounts in local dishes, according to culture and place, are harmless unless there are allergies to chemicals in the leaves. For example, some people are allergic to celery leaves. At any rate, it is advisable not to eat large quantities of any particular leaf for protracted periods.

Some species, such as spinach and amaranth, contain oxalic acid. They should not be eaten on a regular basis without boiling and discarding the water. Also plants containing oxalic acid should be cooked in a steel pot or pan, not in aluminum pots.[3]

The fact that a certain leaf is part of the traditional cuisine of a country or an area is no guarantee that it is harmless as food. The leaves of the black nightshade (Solanum nigrum) and similar species, contain solanine, an alkaloid. Despite their categorization among poisonous plants, nightshade species are part of the cuisine of certain countries, such as Ethiopia, India and Greece. The leaves are cooked in salty water, which is often boiled and drained more than once.[4]

Emergency food[edit]

Another category comprises edible leaves - from plants such as alfalfa, Ruppia maritima, rice or wheat, and cultivated legumes - that are used as emergency or famine food. They are eaten only during times of famine or in isolated areas when fishing or hunting fails.[5] Most such leaves are very rough fare as they are often used as fodder in times of plenty. During Holodomor, for instance, desperate Ukrainians ate leaves from bushes and trees when no other food was available.[6]

Generally, the types of leaves that are eaten during emergency times only are not considered normally consumed leafy greens and have not been included in the list.

The leaves of the plant reach out towards the sun and for this reason the plant is sometimes called the Compass Plant. Prickly Lettuce can grow to be from two to five feet tall but should be harvested early on when it is a few inches high. The young leaves of the plant are very tender and make an excellent salad green. As a potherb, the plant needs little cooking and is commonly made with a sauce of melted butter or vinegar.
