Monggo With Alugbati Leaves

Alugbati is one of my favorite green, leafy source. In terms of its nutritional content, I would consider that it is one of the most nutritious. Easy to cook, easy to grow.
Alugbati
A succulent, branched, smooth, twining herbaceous vine, several meters in length. Stems are purplish or green.
Common market product, a popular leafy and stew vegetable, a good substitute for spinach.
The green and purple cultivated varieties are preferable to the wild ones.
Both the young shoots and stems are eaten.
Excellent source of calcium and iron; good source of vitamins A, B, and C, with a high roughage value.

I love alugbati, too, but I seldom cook alugbati in our house because my husband doesn't like it.

Yes, alugbati and monggo go well together, and I like it. I can't eat alugbati salad though, which my mom would prepare for us. =)
