Saluyot can easily grow in the Philippines. Sometimes you can even find it in an abandoned lot area, or surprisingly in your backyard growing on its own.
- 2 bundles saluyot leaves
- 1 whole chopped garlic
- 2 small tomatoes sliced
- 1 medium red onion
- 3 cooking oil
- 1 tbsp light soy sauce
- 1 dash fish sauce
- 1 pinch salt to taste
Take out saluyot leaves, disregard the stalks. Soak it in salt water for at least 10-15 minutes. Wash and rinse it into flowing water and drain.
On the pan, heat cooking oil, and saute chopped garlic, sliced onion, and tomato. Add saluyot leaves and seasoning. Stir-fry until mixed well. Cover it with a lid and simmer in low heat until saluyot leaves are fully-cooked. Add salt if needed.
