Peeling off Leaves

moringa

March 31, 2016 5:29pm CST
Can you believe this? Early morning I took the left over Moringa leaves from the back yard and starts peeling it's leaves. What I'm going to do with it? I don't know. Most of the people who responded to me about the juice I made that I should just make a soup out of it, with some beef on it. There was also another method here and that is turning it into a powder. I've search a few clips over the internet, my only mistake was I forgot to just dry it first. I could have tried to make another shake on this, but I already did this last night. I'm thinking of eating it raw once I boiled it, that's my plan I think. Any advice on what to do with these left overs? I don't wanna throw them away, I've already thrown half of them.

Hello @TiarasOceanView It's the green leaves that has lots and lots of vitamins and toppled the veggies that I was eating the whole day. well, I peeled some of them off but kept some of them since the bowl is already full. not sure about salad, takes a lot of work for me. It's also called drum stick tree

I use it for tinola, monggo sinigang sa kamatis or misua. It's a versatile plant. I've seen it in commercial noodles and Pan de sal. Haven't tried using it as an ingredient in shakes though.

how did you cook it in noodles? maybe I will just buy another soup and add this moringa leaves since it's better than the rest of the veggies i've added in the soup. @Lucky15

I'm thinking of doing that for my dinner I think @rakski the moringa soup probably didn't have much of the leaves anyway.

I think you can use it as a sort of fertilizer thing. You can shred them and put in plants. Is this a "malunggay" leaves?

It's no longer nice to eat since it already peeled, i still say turn it to powder, you can make an improvised dryer with screen cover that you can put on the roof or your garden since you do not want to throw any, this could be used over and over for the future fall outs

It seems as if the leaves would be great for soup. I haven't had any berf stew in awhile. You reminded of it when you mentioned beef. Whatever you choose the leaves fir I'm sure it will be delicious.

I'm just not confident on adding some beef or making a soup right now that involves moringa some how. well, it's gonna be a bit bitter but it's nutritious anyway. maybe it's gonna be another juice after meal, like last night
