I summoned The Hubby to the dining table to eat and he saw our fried pork chop staring sadly back at him. He murmurs, 'Eto lang?'. I rolled my eyes and quickly scanned our vegetable drawer in the fridge. The only thing I saw that is quick to cook is a bundle of Kangkong. Ah, another MomGyver moment!
1. Remove the leaves from the stem and rinse thoroughly. (Some prefer to include the upper stem. If you've tried the kangkong in Chowking, you'd notice they include the stems too).
2. Peel and mince about 6 cloves of garlic.
3. Pour cooking oil into a frying pan and saute the garlic. Stir in the kangkong leaves before the garlic turns brown or toasted (bec they might turn bitter).
4. Stir-fry continuously. Add about 5 teaspoons of water, a pinch of salt and a dash of pepper to taste.
If you have a Garlic Magic Savor in your kitchen, add a teaspoon.
5. Remove from fire and serve immediately.
1 bundle of kangkong - Php5
Garlic, oil, pepper, salt, lpg - about Php10-15
Serves 2 persons.
An order of this in a restaurant costs about Php100 but you can cook this for a low cost of Php20!
