The vine should be trellised and to prune Malabar spinach, simply cut the thick, fleshy leaves while retaining some stem.
Using Malabar spinach is just like cooking with regular spinach greens. Delicious cooked, Malabar spinach is not as slimy as some other greens. In India, it is cooked with spicy chilies, chopped onion and mustard oil. Found frequently in soups, stir-fries and curries, Malabar spinach holds up better than regular spinach and doesn’t wilt as rapidly. Although when cooked it tastes much like spinach, Malabar spinach raw is a revelation of juicy, crisp flavors of citrus and pepper. It is delicious mixed in with other greens in tossed salads.
