This is the first time I’ve grown Malabar spinach and I have to say, I LOVE it!! It takes the heat, vines so no bending over, and produces huge quantities of leaves. It is mild and tender enough to eat raw and sautes well also. It doesn’t “bolt” like traditional spinach. It isn’t fussy and tastes delish. It will be in the garden from now on!!
For dinner tonight I sliced up a handful or two of leaves and sauteed them in olive oil. When they started to wilt I added a pad of butter, feta and pecans. Cooked a few more minutes and added a bit of salt. Wonderful!!
