Moringa Egg Drop Soup






















A dearest sister gave me this Moringa sapling and since then , it has grown into a 5 foot plant and has given me great pleasure in making egg drop soup with the moringa leaves whenever we needed a quick and easy soup.  I grow the Moringa plant in container so as to control the height of the plant :) It can grow into a big tree if I grow them on ground. Anyway, as space is limited and my lil space allocated to me for planting has been cemented so all my edibles are grown in pots and containers :)
Anyway , back to this wonderful soup, it is easy to whip up and taste so wonderfully good even the Wild Boar loves it. The leaves are  tender, smooth and has a slight fragrant to it and lots of health benefits from the leaves.  We have this soup at least 3 times a week . Homegrown and homecooked has always been my first priority when it comes to food :)  As the saying goes, you are what you eat :p

 
garlic, seasalt and egg goes well with moringa leaves
it gives the perfect taste and flavor






















 the uncooked one is for the sister-in-law :)
