Stir-Fried Morning Glory

Morning glory (tra kuen), is one of the most popular vegetables in Cambodia as it grows in abundance. The green stems and thin leaves have a slightly grassy flavour, quite similar to spinach. This delicious vegetable is rich in flavour and nutrition, so it’s especially perfect in vegan and vegetarian dishes.
