Waterleaf is a herbaceous plant with edible leaves. Mostly found in West Africa and North America. In Nigeria, waterleaf is one of those readily available vegetables, they literally grow everywhere. You must have seen them on the roadside or even in your backyard. A lot of times they turn out as weeds because they are not intentionally planted; but oh well, we like this kind. Waterleaf is loved in Nigeria because it is used to make some of our favorite delicacies such as Edikaikong, Okro, Afang soup, salad, and loads more. Of course, as the name implies, it has high moisture contents of approximately 90.8gm per 100 gm of the leaf. No wonder growing up we all used to look confused when little water was added to the bowl of soup but it still turned out alright.This plant is rich in vitamins, minerals, calcium, iron and protein. Based on research, it is said to have several health benefits. Some of them are :

  • Prevents heart diseases and strokes
