As far as i could remember when growing up is that, i am not fond of this wonder vegetable. Monringa or we called it in native dialect as Malungay is very common to our household. My dad's favorite he can have them everyday! He believes the healthy benefits of it! He keeps reminding us that when we were kids and wanted us to continue eating. The tree itself called horseradish. Very famous in the Philippines. Anyway, this tree i used to take it for granted. I remembered how my grandma fixed it and mom, aunts and dad's favorite cooking is law-oy way. Haha, in-short nothing special but a mix of water, fish (not necessary) slice tomatoes, chop green onions, some garlic for aromatic effect, salt to taste, few other veges such eggplants or string beans and the famous Monringa. Just simmer it until everything is cook. 

So therefore, right now i realized how much i took it for granted. Once in a while i wanted to have those malunggay in my plate either way i could fix them. Gladly we move in FL, now the weather is more on tropical sides. So we planted some trees and they're blooming like crazy, this was my first harvest and first taste since i came here to US seven years ago! Right now, i would never take this for granted and the nutritional benefits of the vegetable is unbeatable which is the important!
