Vietnamese Vegetables

I just started gardening two years ago and it’s been so much fun. I’m trying to grow more food that my family eat, which are Vietnamese dishes. Being in California makes it a bit easier, although it could be cold for some of these tender plants.

These are some vegetable plants eaten in popular Vietnamese dishes:

  1. Bo ngot, or rau ngot (katuk): soup
  2. Dau rong (winged bean): fresh or quick stir-fry
  3. Bac ha (Alocasia odora, Night-scented Lily or giant upright elephant ear): soup
  4. Dau bap (okra)
  5. Mong toi (malabar spinach)
  6. Ngo om:
  7. Ngo gai (culantro)
  8. Tia to
  9. Rau que (basil, thai basil)
  10. Tan o (edible chrysanthemum, garland chrysanthemum)
  11. Bi dao
  12. Muop dang, kho qua (bitter gourd, bitter melon)
