(Leaf ginseng; Surinam spinach) Attractive edible houseplant with glossy, dark-green whorled leaves and tiny red flowers. Young leaves and tender stems have a slightly sour taste. Can be chopped and added in salads, or parboiled, steamed, sauteed or added to soups. Should not be overcooked or it gets too soft and mucilaginous. In Indonesia, this herb is as highly regarded as ginseng, giving the whole body a strengthening boost. In Chinese medicine, the roots of a related species are used to treat general debility in the same way as ginseng.
