- Kangkong is a tropical plant that grows in water or moist soil throughout Southeast Asia. The leaves are eaten raw or cooked. It is also known as swamp cabbage, water spinach, rau muong or ong choy. One cup of uncooked kangkong contains 175 mg potassium, medium-potassium serving.
- Substitute watercress or mustard greens if kangkong is unavailable.
- Tamarind mix is available at Asian grocery stores. Look for Knorr® brand. Limit to 1/2 package to keep sodium and potassium down.
