Kangkong and Bagoong


Inspired by Chowking =D

Back in the Philippines, I would buy kangkong (water convolvulus) from Cherry foodarama (congressional av) for 9pesos a bundle. But when a younger child in Cavite, we would pick them up freely from our neighbors!

Anyway, Chowking's Kangkong with Bagoong is a favorite of both hubby and I. (I remember back then it costs 20Php per plate.) We would eat this dish often when we're out so cooking it at home became inevitable especially on days we are too lazy to go out of the house.

This isn't exactly the Chowking recipe but a spinoff...Chowking do not serve theirs with tomatoes.


a bundle of Kangkong (cut up, remove hard stalks and damaged leaves)
2 cloves minced garlic
1 small chopped onion
1 medium cubed tomato

1. Heat oil in pan. Saute garlic and onions, do not brown the garlic. Drop the tomatoes and stir.

2. Throw in the well-cleaned kangkong leaves and stalks then cover. Stir twice-thrice, turn off stove, and serve while crispy. Goes very well with Bagoong (shrimp paste) and rice.

With Kamayan's Chinese Bagoong.


Random stuff about (featured) fruits

heavy with vitaminC

I don't claim to be a nutrition expert but I 'm glad that those who are freely gives information about fruits. Let's see what the fruits in the photo above contain and let's learn some more health tips too.


One orange supplies 116.2% of the daily value for vitamin C.


Strawberries are a wholesome source for essential vitamins and minerals such as vitamin C, folate, fiber, potassium and antioxidants that help keep you and your family healthy. Just eight strawberries have more vitamin C than a medium orange. Strawberries are low in fat and calories, which makes them a great snack and they are also thought to be helpful in reducing the risk of certain types of cancer.


Cantaloupes are fat and cholesterol free, contains very low sodium. Are high in vitamins A and C and also a good source of folate.


The vitamin C content of many fruit is higher when it is slightly immature, and declines as the fruit hits peak ripeness. For example, the kiwifruit is an exceptionally rich source of vitamin C - a medium sized fruit has 74 mg, but a kiwifruit that has been coolstored for a while has a vitamin C content of 57 mgs. Still excellent, but less excellent.


Lemons has very good amounts of copper, magnesium, manganese, iron, phosphorous, potassium and calcium are found in lemons. Small amounts of zinc and sodium can also be seen in lemons. Lemons contain excellent levels of vitamin c. It is also a good source of thiamin, vitamin c, vitamin b6, riboflavin and pantothenic acid. Lemon also contains traces of vitamin b2.
