Are you looking for a easy kangkong recipe? Well, here are the ingredients and procedures in making adobong kangkong.

The local government units have been encouraging all households of building a vegetable garden. I agree with these suggestions, but I think, less than 1% of the urban homes will love to have one. Well, I am proud that at least my mom has some herbs and spices around.

One of the easiest vegetables to grow in our gardens, even in pots, is the kangkong or water spinach (try it before reacting). Despite it is vine type, it can also grow hanging. It will flourish with no too much care, less susceptible to pests and diseases, and can grow well even to the most unhealthy soil.

You can even see such vegetables being grown through the seasides.
