Lalit, or Amaranthus cruentus, is a popular red-striped, broad dented leaf. Popular in Chinese and Vietnamese cuisine, it helps provide a red color into soups and dishes when cooked. Unlike other green leaf plants, this red Amaranth loves the heat, and can be planted to offset your garden after your green leaf harvest is over!
