First time Making Sauteed Winged Beans and Carrots

in Plant Power (Vegan)14 days ago

Stir-fried winged bean and carrot


Have you ever seen a vegetable known as winged bean? Well, this vegetable is a type of vine that is usually classified as a type of legume by the people of my area. Growing fertile and having a lot of health benefits, this vegetable is loved by many Indonesian people in particular. This vegetable that I know comes from Papua New Guinea and I don't know for sure whether winged bean vegetables can also be found in other Asian countries. This vegetable itself has many health benefits for the consumer. One of them is to prevent diabetes and can also prevent inflammation.


The name of this vegetable is definitely different in every region, including in my area. In Aceh's own language, this vegetable is known as "Boh Reuteuk Ngom", this vegetable is usually processed into fresh vegetables or mixed with sauce sambal. So you need to know, this vegetable is only taken when it is young to be used as a vegetable, because if this vegetable is too old it will have a hard texture.

In accordance with the title above, this is the first time I have tasted this vegetable, as I remember when I was little my mother used to cook this vegetable. It's just that I wasn't a vegetable lover when I was little so I've never tried it though. I got these vegetables from my neighbor a few days ago, he planted winged bean in the back of his house. Because the winged bean grows well and is fertile he gave me a bag of winged bean. Immediately, I looked for the appropriate reference for processed vegetables on this one. And I didn't find a recipe that suited my taste, so I thought of combining winged bean with carrots. And I think it would be very different, because the carrot and winged bean would accentuate the sweetness and crunchiness of both.

Ingredients Used


10 winged greens
1 carrot
2 Spring onions
2 cloves of garlic
3 green chilies
2 red chilies
1 tomato
5 bird's eye chilies

Cooking Steps

Steps 1

Wash the winged bean and carrots clean, then cut into thin obliques or according to your taste.



Steps 2

Then soak the winged bean briefly in salt water, then boil it in boiling water for only 3 minutes.



Steps 3

Next, cut the onions, chilies and tomatoes into small pieces, then sauté the onions in a tablespoon of oil.



Steps 4

Then add the chili and tomato pieces, then add 5 cups of cooking water until the water boils.



Steps 5

Then enter the carrot pieces, add the winged bean that has been boiled earlier.



Steps 6

Stir and cook until the vegetables wilt, stirring occasionally. Now, when cooking, cover the vegetables so that the color of the vegetables remains beautiful.



Steps 7

Finally, taste correction and don't forget to add a teaspoon of salt.







The taste from of sauteed winged bean and carrot for the first impression is delicious, I never thought that winged bean vegetables which belong to this type of leguminous plant have a crunchy texture like crunchy carrots. The slightly sweet taste is perfect when cooked with a touch of spicy and slightly salty. I think this is the right combination and very beneficial for our bodies. Well, I enjoy this vegetable stir-fry with hot rice, and you know I can finish it in an instant. Because this is really beyond my expectations delicious, savory and slightly sweet really fits on the tongue.

Hello dear, I love to eat vegetables auqnue in my country is a little difficult because of the high prices , Thank you for sharing and delight my eyes with this preparation that looks very delicious.


You are right Asian vegetables are much more expensive in other countries. And I think, maybe you'll find a type of bean similar to winged bean someday that is much cheaper.

Thanks for stopping by.

Wow ihave not seen such beans before in my country. But I guess it nice though.

This bean is almost similar to long beans,
the taste is also very similar. And I think other than in Asian countries, you'd find it really hard to find.

Ya because I have not seen such before

I have never seen these here. I really wish I could try them. There are gourds that have ridges like that but not the same. That dish looks amazing.

You have to try it, I think you can try with whatever kind you have in your area, including pumpkin.
