Munggo beans with pork bones and spinach
just craving for a munggo dish…as they say in the phillpines…”byernes munggo”..it says, a common dish every friday… You can cook several varieties using munggo beans, I already tried the monggo beans with pork and sotanghon. Maybe the favorite cooking style of monggo I have ever taste was the one cooked by my wife’s relatives back in Laguna, Philippines. They cooked it with alukbati(Sorry don’t know the english word for this vegetable) and malunggay fruit and leaves. I want to try it but a failed looking this ingredients to asian supermarket. . . . . Did you know that spinach nutrition is amazing. The calcium content in spinach strengthens our bones. The A and C vitamins in spinach plus the fiber, folic acid, magnesium and other nutrients help control cancer, especially colon, lung and breast cancers. Folate also lowers the blood levels of something called homocysteine, a protein that damages arteries. So spinach also helps protect against heart disease.
