Ginataang Kangkong is a dish of water spinach sautéed with prawns, garlic and onions and cooked with coconut milk


We prepared several simple dishes during the last couple of weeks and I wish to continue that trend, especially now its Lenten season, it’s the best time to abstain from meat, a time for Catholics and various Christian denominations to show acts of penance and sacrifice which exercises their freedom to make much bigger sacrifices. I know this might sound odd to others but this practice while it has some historical significance ——-, those who practice it often do so for spiritual reasons and self-discipline.

Today we once again abstain from meat, a separation from desires of eating that crispy pork belly, fork tender beef brisket or juicy roast chicken hence we are posting a very simple dish of water spinach and prawns cooked in coconut milk.
