Moringa and it uses

What is Moringa?

Moringa is native to the Himalayan regions of India. The Tree is now grown across tropical regions in Africa, Asia, islands in the Pacific and the Caribbean, and South America. The most commonly known variety of Moringa is Moringa Oleifera. It is a tree with long, delicate-looking branches, which have small, oval-shaped dark green leaves. Those leaves have lot of healthy nutrients. For more about Moringa, please use our MoringaBot

Eating Moringa Leaves

If it’s your first time to eat Moringa leaves, you will be pleasantly surprised at the „meaty“ taste of them. The fresh Moringa leaves have a strong aftertaste if eaten raw. Some seconds after first chewing them, you will feel a burning sensation, that kicks in. The Moringa leaves combine well with other foods.

I personally have some trees in the Kitchen at the window. At meal time, everyone (my little daughter loves it) takes some leaves and add them to the food. This is for our family an easy way to eat fresh Moringa leaves.

Everyone should try to eat the leaves raw to get the most benefit from them. Here are some suggestions of eating fresh Moringa leaves:

  1. Smoothies: they are the easiest way to consume a lot of Moringa leaves at once. I like mixing fresh Moringa to ginger and other fruits like mango or papaya to have a tropical taste. You can add one or more cups of fresh leaves to a smoothie of your choice for a super healthy drink!
  2. Salads, pizza or Sandwiches: If you mix fresh Moringa leaves into your salad, on your sandwich or pizza, you will hardly know you are eating Moringa leaves.
  3. Soups: add some Moringa leaves to your soup and you won’t find the intense flavour of them.
  4. They is not limit ideas, how to eat Moringa leaves. Please post your favourite way to eat Moringa leaves.
The first thing you need to have, is a source for Moringa. There are many good companies, who sell the Moringa Leaves, mostly as Powder online. For fresh leaves, it is best to grow them, yourself.

My next post will be a guide to plant Moringa yourself.

Also the flowers, the flower buds, the pods, the seeds can be eaten. But we talk about them in our next posts.

Enjoy eating the magic leaves of Moringa😊.
