About Adobong Kangkong

That’s because they are inexpensive and easily grown in swamplands. Unlike spinach, the leaves are quite fragile and easily bruised so it is not best to serve it as a salad. The stalks are hollow and edible as well.
Here in the Philippines, water spinach grows easily in watery places so you can always see these on the market. This dish is cheap but very delicious; it can be an appetizer or and can be your main dish as well, it is excellent served with hot white rice.
