Morning Glory, Anyone?!

At Misfit Garden we want to make eating and cooking veggies exciting again!
We want people to have the chance to try new veggies that can't be found at the supermarket.

In last week's box, we were lucky enough to get our hands on some water spinach; this is also known as Morning Glory! Not actually related to spinach at all, water spinach is a long, leafy green vegetable with hollow stems that grows in water or damp soil . As a semi-aquatic tropical plant, it grows abundantly in natural waterways in Southeast Asia, where it is native.

This leafy veg its best enjoyed in stir-fries and both the leaves and stem are edible. Keep in mind the stalks will take a wee bit longer to cook than the leaves, so we recommend to add the leafy top bit at the end of your cooking.
