#Recipe: 腐乳蕹菜 Kang Kong With Fermented Beancurd #waterspinach #食谱 #cookforfamily
The Water Convolvolusas, or Kang Kong as it is more commonly known, is a very hardy plant which requires very little care. Left on it's own, it will flourish along the riverbanks and even in the canals. As it grows quite abundantly, farmers used to feed them to livestocks such as pigs. Being an aquatic vegetable, do wash them thoroughly for the presence of tiny snails especially inside the hollow stems. What I do is to soak them in concentrated salt water for at least 30 minutes. Since I will be using roughly two tablespoons of liquids from the bottle of Fermented Beancurd, I will not add more salt. You may want to sprinkle a pinch of sugar to balance the taste although that is optional. Here are some benefits of the Kang Kong: - Antioxidant - Controls Blood Sugar - Combats Hypertension Try this out and let me know how you like it?
