Sweet Vegetable (Pak Waan)This vegetable doesn’t seem to have a common English name. The name in Thai literally means ‘sweet vegetable’, so that’s what I’ll call it here. It’s scientific name is ‘Melientha Suavis Pierre’. This vegetable has a slightly sweet taste, and is usually eaten in soups.

Storage: Store in a plastic bag in the refrigerator.
