They said “Alugbati” or Vine spinach is a luscious vegetables. Which is very true. I use to cook it with ginisang mongo (mung bean), tahong (mussels) and even in my pinakbet! It is rich in iron, Vitamins A, B, C and calcium as well. There are two variety of it namely the green and purple one. The purple one known to be a good source of xanthones, an antioxidant.
My alugbati in my kitchen after a week today, so healthy. I realy love it as my main vegetables specially with ginisang mongo and on my tahong soup. My daughter, she learned how to eat it too just like me before. I knew it from my late nanay how healthy this vegetable is. My late nanay always says; eating green leafy vegetables can help us live longer, I grew up with it.
This was taken second day after I did transfered in a pot in my kitchen. You see the difference how it develop so fast compared to the other photo above. I planted it from cuttings the one I bought for cooking a week ago. Then I soaked the cuttings in water overnight before I planted it in a wide pot as you seen in this picture above. May gulay ka na na pang sahog-sahog basta alagaan lang ng mabuti para laging magbigay ng masaganang dahon!
