  1. Where can I buy this in America? My grandma always makes this but I moved to a different state. Now I’m craving it but no idea where to buy it 😭

  2. This is also very cheap and yummy in the Philippines! But the leaves of water spinach here is wider. We also like to dip it in soy sauce with a little chili sauce.

  4. Hi Helen, I am sure your recipe is delicous, but I have grave reservation of your procedure. What I am saying is that after blanching you lift out the vegetable in plastic strainer exposing the vegetable to toxin materials released from the plastic strainer which releases various toxics as soon as it is exposed to heat. So I question of how healthy can your recipe be!

  5. I am an Afro-American guy and I am totally new to Vietnamese cuisine!!!.So today I went to have lunch at a very lovely Vietnamese Restaurant in the China- town section in Manhattan,New York City. I ordered a dish of water-spinach with garlic/garlic sauce because I had watched your video on how to make it at home.Well…. all I can say was WOW..that was great!!!It was very tasty,very garlicky and very flavorful and very filling.I had my portion with bits of beef included as well,and an order of green tea to wash it all down.This was my first time and it really exceeded my expectations in terms of flavor!.So let me say to all my Black sisters and brothers out there….Lay off the Mickey-Deeze ,Southern Fried Chicken,Smothered Pork Chops , Pigs Feet and Ribs,.and start to eat and enjoy Vietnamese cuisine!!!. You will love it and live a lot longer life too! To your health!!!

  6. Helen , this looks good. I’m gonna make this today with normal spinach . Besides food, you’ve got a good voice and a great style.

  7. when i. visited vietnam many years ago, i was so excited by the flavour of this vegetable. i think my mom was quite surprised i would ask for it almost every single meal, because it was not that special to her… i have fond memories of this dish… thank you

  8. Guys I heard this food makes your dick hard and long for hours :O (this is a tip for you guys that cant get hard) also while eating this you drink green tea this is not a joke I did it and it worked go ahead and try it!

  9. I love this simple dish…so good and healthy.  Thank you Helen.  You are doing a good job.  Keep it up…

  10. Kangkong is delicous but be careful: the hollow stems are hosst to a deadly fluke called Fasciolopsis buski, the flukes can kill you, and some people have been killed by this fluke from eating kangkong. Not that you cannot eat kangkong but you must process it well before eating the vegetable. In Malaysia, we always split open the stem before cooking them. By splitting the stem open, you will be able to see if there are flukes in the stems. Here's the link about the kangkong fluke:

  11. that looks absolutely delicious! when I was in Vietnam I had water spinach everyday, but they were ground grown not water grown, water grown cost much more

  12. you're my hero! I follow this and a few other recipes. I tried blanching quickly and for first time , my rau muon came out very crunchy & yummy.

  13. i love stir fried water spinach vietnamese style i will try to cook it by myself , thanks so lot for the recipe

  14. My favourite vegetable dish! We eat this together with rice and canh cà chua. Very typical northern haha. It balances the oil and saltiness of the rau muong and very refreshing. Do you know what it is? 🙂

  15. I was lucky enough to get some water spinach yesterday..the Vietnamese people at the salon next door have a guy who brings it to South Carolina from Florida, and I just happened to be there when he arrived 🙂 They said it was Chinese broccoli, but when I searched for recipes for that, it didn't look like what I have. I can't wait to try your recipe!

  16. Hi Helen! Do you know how to make soup using this same veggie? It's also a Vietnamese dish, my bf mother would make it but i never get the chance to watch her make. If you did, can you post up a video for it? Thanks in advance! 🙂

  17. I find blanching unnecessary. I cook water spinach a lot, especially in soaps and stir fry. Throughout my years with this veggie I still end up with the green color.
