Choose young, fresh, dark green leaves for cooking. They taste better and are more nutritious than older, yellowing leaves.

Remove the stems from the leaves. Cook the leaves as you would any other green leafy vegetable, like spinach. If you boil the leaves, don't throw the water away after boiling, as it contains many nutrients. Use the water in your food if you can.

In India, people add Moringa leaves to curries and soups, or even pickle them. Try adding the leaves to traditional foods in your area. This seems to be more acceptable than "new" types of food.

You can also use Moringa leaf powder in cooking.
