The Tastiest Raw Green You've Never Tried

The Tastiest Raw Green You've Never Tried

I was recently introduced to water spinach, a very popular leafy vegetable in Asia that can also be found in Asian grocery stores in North American and Europe, and I was immediately won over.

Not only does it make for good munching food, but it works as a substitute for lettuce in salad recipes. Asians usually use it in stir fries, but it's delicious raw.

Unlike many vegetables based around stalks, water spinach has a hollow, easy-to-digest stem that I think tastes even better than the leaves. The taste is salty and earthy, and I can't get enough of it.

I've written a lot more about water spinach and how to find it here.

Tired Of A Jam-Prone Blender?

Years ago I got tired of always having my smoothies and raw dressings get jammed in my old low-powered blender, so I got a Vitamix.

It's got a tamper you can use to mash down stuck food without taking the lid off, and it's powerful enough to blend just about anything.
