Dysphania ambrosioides is used as a leaf vegetable, herb, and herbal tea for its pungent flavor. There are parts of this plant, mostly the seeds, that contain an essential oil that if taken in excess is highly toxic. Even though this plant has an established place in recipes and in folklore, it is wise to use only the leaves, and those very sparingly, in cooking.
