Ginataang Sitaw at Kalabasa, Filipino Recipe of Squash and String Beans cooked in Coconut Cream Sauce
A quick and easy Filipino recipe which is really good and tasty! I don’t know where it originated but most probably in the Bicol region in the Philippines (that’s in the Southern part of the Luzon Island) due to the fact that I always had this dish when I was a child and most of my relatives came from the said region, another fact is that most of the Bicol dishes uses coconut milk and chillies as that’s their primary produce in the said province.
It’s so simple to prepare, there are only 4 main ingredients in this dish which are pork, buttercup (you can also use butternut or squash, I like buttercup as it’s a bit on the sweet side), string beans and coconut milk. It is then flavoured with fish bagoong (A fermented salted fish sauce). It is also best taken with newly cooked steamed jasmine rice.
