Morning glory or water spinach is a popular veg in Vietnam and is sold everywhere. This is a poor man’s food and is usually stir fried with fish sauce, soy or even oyster sauce. I prefer a combo of fish and soy sauces. The veg has a crunchy texture and is usually served with steamed rice.


  • 250g morning glory
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and diced
  • 1 chili (optional), chopped
  • 2 teaspoons 3-crab fish sauce
  • 2 teaspoons light soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon of oil


Step 1

Break the stalks of the morning glory by hand, one at a time into 5cm long pieces. Break apart the leaves one by one. Wash the veg and drain well.

Step 2

Heat the oil in a wok on high heat.

Step 3

Add the garlic and saute until golden. Don't burn it.

Step 4

Add the morning glory, chili and sauces. Move the veg around so that they don't burn. Add 1-2 tablespoons of water if needed. Stir fry until the veg has wilted, about 3 minutes.

Step 5

Serve with plain, steamed rice.
