This category basically is an assortment of diverse vegetables cooked together to create a wonderful concoction. It can be a selection of at least two vegetables and as much as your heart’s desire.
Pinakbet – Perhaps the most popular and most Filipino of this whole list, basically a combination of different tropical vegetables cooked with a bit of pork or shrimps, mostly dry but some with a bit of sauce.
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 – 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 – Not anywhere near the menudo you know of, first it’s not red, it uses chayote and protein used is beef tripe.
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 – Cubed vegetables with prawns and quail eggs.
Lumpiang Sariwa – Mix of raw or blanched vegetables, wrapped in crepe and served with peanut sauce.
Lumpiang Hubad – Similar to the above but served without the wrap
