My wife bought some Morning Glory in the market this evening. It's getting dark now; I'll capture an image in the morning.
Coincidentally Ocado (on-line supermarket) have started stocking it and I ordered some to arrive tomorrow - so I'll also photograph it. I've never tried it before but I think its like spinach. How are you going to cook it?

So does morning glory cook like leafy spinach?
What are the common uses / recipes for morning glory?
My wife suggests stir frying it with garlic, chillis and fish sauce. Adding pork stock at the end and serving with rice noodles.

Personally I'd prefer a few chunks of meat in there.

Here is what I did with the leaves - Kolmi Saag Aloo (Morning Glory & Potato Curry). I'm very excited about this. Its one of the best curries I ever made. Not so much to do with the Morning Glory, which tastes quite similar to spinach - maybe a touch more mineral tasting, but the technique. I tempered the whole spices in mustard oil to start with. I've never tried that before... I'll post up the recipe when I get a chance. I'm using the hollow stems for another dish.
