I'm having a ton of fun growing Moringa trees.  Moringa is a fast-growing subtropical tree that is considered one of the most nutritious plants on the planet.  I planted seeds of Moringa this Spring.  My first seedlings failed because it was still too cold, but the ones I planted later survived and are now over eight feet tall, blooming and setting pods.  Bumblebees love the flowers.

I've eaten the leaves in salads, mixed with other greens as cooked greens, and in a Moringa Chicken dish, recipe below:

Chicken Moringa!

4 boneless chicken thighs, cubed
1 large onion, chopped
1 tablespoon oil
1 cup tomato sauce
1 tsp fresh ginger, minced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp coriander
1 tsp turmeric
2 cups Moringa leaves


Saute chicken and onion until slightly browned, add tomato sauce, spices, and Moringa leaves.  Cover and simmer until chicken is tender.  Add water if necessary to desired thickness of sauce.  Serve over rice.
