Malabar Spinach Recipe


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!!

  1. This is kind of spooky. My brother, the one in Lakewood, just grew this type of spinach this year and I tried it last week. How ’bout that? Snap!

    1. It is becoming popular for good reason!
