Rice Paddy Herb

Rice Paddy Herb (Limnophilia aromatica) – The shoots and leaves of this tender perennial are used extensively in Vietnamese cooking where it is known as rau om and rau ngo. The delicate flavour has notes of citrus and cumin, and is used to season fish, soups, and vegetables. It is a challenge to grow because it prefers a location by a stream or pond, but it is becoming increasingly available in American supermarkets, especially in locations with significant Vietnamese populations.
