Water spinach or kangkong is a semi aquatic plant. Studies said that, this leafy veggie is rich in potassium and Vitamin A. What can we do with this? Blanched or steamed or boiled then dipped or added some "bagoong" or fish sauce with sliced.tomatoes. That famous Filipino adobo, we can cook this water spinach too. And just like the usual adobo, soy sauce, vinegar, onions and garlic are its additional ingredients, of course with oil. And an appetizing recipe too, crispy kangkong. Leaves dipped with batter and fried until it gets.crispy. Yummy! I know there is a lot more dishes that "features" this leafy vegetable. Do you know any? Or, have you.eaten this?

I prefer kangkong to be half cooked and then just added with bagguong. It is also best when cook in soy and vinegar.

I'm a fan of leafy vegetables. I've never heard of kangkong. Sure wish I could try it. I guess it tastes as bitter like spinach? or maybe pungent?
