Boiled, slightly. Or blanched. Camote tops is top salad amongst Pinoys especially Ilokanos who are crazy about leafy green veggies. You wash and rinse the camote tops, rinse but with little water clinging to the leaves and then put it in in a hot pan or pot with no water, cover it for about 3 minutes until the leaves are slightly wilted but still green. Put off fire and transfer the tops into a bowl, dress it with bugguong and calamansi, put in some sliced tomatoes and onions, and that’s it, ready for breakfast. lunch or dinner. As an appetizer. Or even as a main course if you are minimalistic vegetarian like me who’s contented with just one veggie viand for my rice, no meat, no any other.
