One thing about me is I don’t like dipping food in sauce especially when it’s fried. I’d rather eat the food as it is. However, for vegetable dishes that is meant to have sauce, I like them drenched in as much sauce as possible. So for Kangkong, I always choose to cook Saucy Adobong Kangkong. I love how filling this dish is and yummy too!
Another thing I learned while cooking this kangkong dish is to first fry the garlic chips and use the remaining oil to cook the dish. This makes such a great difference because the garlic flavour is already infused into the oil. The Saucy Adobong Kangkong dish is best eaten when freshly cooked!
Saucy Adobong Kangkong
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 8 cloves garlic sliced
- 1/2 cup water
- 4 tbsp soy sauce
- 3 tbsp white vinegar
- 1 tsp white sugar
- 1 bunch Kangkong chopped

- pepper to taste
Heat olive oil in medium heat in a wok.
Add garlic and cook until the color of the garlic turns brown.
Remove the garlic and set aside.
With the remaining oil, add water, soy sauce, vinegar and sugar. Let boil.
Cover the wok and cook for 3 minutes.
Add salt and pepper to taste.
Stir all ingredients together.
Transfer to a serving plate. Top adobong Kangkong with fried garlic (from steps 2-3).
Serve and enjoy!
