Ginisang Talbos ng Kamote at Okra (Sauteed Camote Tops and Lady’s Finger)
This is an easy to cook vegetable dish that has many health benefits. It goes well with fried/grilled meat or fish. I was surprised that my kids liked it and you will definitely enjoy this dish too!
Talbos ng Kamote, also known as Sweet Potato Leaves or Camote Tops, is an excellent source of anti-oxidative compounds. These compounds protect the human body from oxidative stress associated with many diseases, including cancer and cardio vascular diseases. Talbos ng Kamote is a good source of protein, minerals, dietary fiber and nutrients such as calcium, magnesium, sodium, phosphorous, sulfur, iron and zinc. And in addition, a bunch of camote tops is relatively cheap.
Okra, also known in English speaking countries as Lady’s Finger or Gumbo, is always used in common Filipino vegetable dishes and every vegetable stall in the markets should always have this. The health benefits of okra include its ability to lower total cholesterol levels, improve digestive health, improve vision, boost skin health, protect infant health, prevent certain cancers, strengthen bones, improve cardiovascular health, aid the immune system, lower blood pressure, and protect heart health.
