After reading this comment on a recent post by Viv, I did some research on the Moringa Tree. It sounds like a wonder-plant! The leaves contain all essential amino acids and are rich in protein, vitamin A, vitamin B, vitamin C, and minerals. You can also eat the drumstick shaped fruit. It grows easily and doesn’t need much water, and is being touted as a plant to use to combat malnutrition and poverty!
The next day I called up my local nursery and they had a number Moringa Trees in stock. I rushed off to get one and am now the proud owner of my very own wonder-tree. I now need some advice on how to prepare the leaves – recipes please!
