Malabar Spinach, Corn and Pork Soup...this week's post.


  • pork cuts (I used pork shoulder)
  • fresh corn, malabar spinach (also called alugbati in our part of the world)
  • salt, pepper, Italian seasoning
  • garlic and ginger (squashed)
  • fish sauce (optional)


  • Place pork cuts in pot with water, salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, garlic, and ginger. Boil, then keep simmering until tender.
  • Remove the kernels from the corn cob, then place into the pot with the pork cuts. Continue simmering until corn the gets cooked.
  • Adjust seasoning. Once satisfied, turn off heat and throw in the sliced malabar spinach leaves. Cover lid for a couple of minutes to allow the leaves to cook.
  • Best served hot.

My sister's alugbati plant was growing up so fast, I just couldn't resist taking some of it to cook at home. I was afraid my sons wouldn't like it, that's why I sliced the leaves instead of putting them whole in the soup. I really liked the almost earthy-like taste it gave to the sure I'll do this again when I have the chance. My kids liked it, too. Happy Me! :)

Yay, thanks for having my donuts featured. And my post this week is donuts. Again!:)

I love alugbati and the way you used it in this dish.

Yes, it's called Malabar spinach here and I buy both the green and purple stem varieties...can't tell the difference though.

If my son sees those red velvety doughnuts, I'm sure he'd ask me to buy donuts for him right now. Lol! We're also eating alugbati, but I didn't know that it's called malabar spinach in English. Now I know, thanks to your food post.
