Plant List


On this page, we are starting to compile and share the various plants that we are gifted with, both cultivated and native wild plants that we can eat and/or use for other purposes.

Solanum torvum

Wild eggplant / Turkey Berry / Ma Keer

A typical wild edible plant in Southeast Asia, commonly used in Thailand on a side of fresh green accompanying a meal or in green curry recipes.

Sesbania Grandiflora

Dok Kae

Edible white flower

A common recipe for this dish is a Dok Kae omelette. At L.E.A.H. we do a simple stir-fry on it’s own or with other greens, or add into soup just before turning off the fire when cooking and to blanch it lightly.

Sesbania Bispinosa

Dok Sano

Edible yellow flower

Another wild and sometimes invasive small tree with edible yellow flowers. Similarly used like the Dok Kae in omelette, at L.E.A.H.’s plant-based kitchen we add it to soups, salad and stir-fry lightly.

Convolvulaceae Ipomoea

Wild Morning Glory / Kang Kong/ Pak Bong

Edible leave shoots and flower

The leaves are usually stir-fry. The flowers are also edible with a similar umami flavour as the leaves. We have eaten it raw in salads or added to soup or stir-fry. There is a slightly slimy quality similar to the leaves.

Leucaena Leucocephala


Edible young leave shoots and pods

Acacia Pennata


Edible young leave shoots

Gymnema Inodorum

Pak Chiang-daa

Piper Sarmentosum
