Ginisang Alugbati ( Sauted Malabar Nightshade)


It's been a  long time that I am looking for malabar nightshade or known as alugbati in the Philippines, it is difficult to find it in South American markets, but last Saturday I was so surprise to see a very fresh alugbati from a booth of vegetables, it made me rush to it the vendor was looking at me curiously hahahahah. I bought three bales of it, then cooked it for supper and here it is.

Ingredients:
alugbati
onion

  8. Will try the recipe as i was thinking of the non viet spinach but bought the alugbati thinking they're the same. Also, will the non-vietnamese spinach work with the sauteed recipe above?
