Pinakbet 2

Pinakbet – Perhaps the most popular and most Filipino of this whole list, the Top 43 Filipino Vegetable Recipes would not be complete without this.  Basically a combination of different tropical vegetables cooked with a bit of pork or shrimps, mostly dry but some with a bit of sauce.

Dinengdeng 1

Laswa / Bulanglang / Law Uy / Utan / Linapwahan / Dinengdeng / Inabraw / Buridibud – Similar to the one above but this time it’s soupy. Most regions have their own version depending on the local produce of the province

Paksing Demonyu 1

Paksing Demonyu – It looks like pinakbet but it does not taste like it, perhaps for vegetable newbies this is the hardest one to swallow (literally), its sour, it’s hot and its very bitter, it does not sound palatable at all. You will need an acquired taste for this one

Menudong Nagcarlan – This Filipino Vegetable Recipe might not be popular and the name might confuse a lot.  It is not anywhere near the menudo you know of, first it’s not red, it uses chayote and protein used is beef tripe.

Chopsuey 1

Chopseuy / Creamy Chopseuy / Beef Chopseuy – This is the Filipino’s take on the Chinese stir fried vegetables

Dinoydoy 1

Dinoydoy – Literally a mish mash of bitter gourd and squash. It’s a roller coaster of flavour and texture, its mushy and crunchy, then its sweet, savoury and bitter.

Sipo Egg (Mixed Vegetables with Shrimps and Quail Eggs) 1

Sipo Egg – Cubed vegetables with prawns and quail eggs.

Lumpiang Sariwa

Lumpiang Sariwa – Mix of raw or blanched vegetables, wrapped in crepe and served with peanut sauce.

Lumpiang Hubad

Lumpiang Hubad – Similar to the above but served without the wrap

    A common one in the province I’m at (Kalinga) is to have dried white beans from the garden (I guess it could be any dried bean), which is then crushed and roasted to be brown… and then boiled. It’s eaten with rice, naturally.
