My girl-friend grew 5 moringa plants, one of which was over 6 feet tall. She had to go to NY and so I got the!! I have done this recipe twice before I saw it here.......I'm a bit of a cook myself. Moringa is delicious any way you do it....from fresh in salads to any kind of stir fry. Just don't cook it very long. I have also dried it and frozen it and it is good any way. The word is that it has all the protein and enzymes that good nutrition requires.<br/>I predict that it will become a household item, in time.<br/><br/>Best great grandpa cook
