I can’t figure out what herb this is. It tastes kind of bitter!

  • It looks like beet to me.

    Beet greens would have mode red veins. Dandelion leaves have a more 3d shape. My guess is Epazote (common in Mexican cuisine). It would be easier to identify if you photographed one of the leaves spread out on a flat surface and maybe with a size reference (like a ruler). Commented May 14, 2019 at 23:42
  • Can you add some more information -- where did you find it, especially :)

  • I've only seen it dried, but it is bitter and the leaf shape matches
