Top 43 Filipino Vegetable Recipes

The Coconut-nut is a giant nut

Dont believe me on that, coconut is not a nut, I just got this from a Smokey Mountain song popular during my time :)
Philippines is a tropical country and that means we have lots of coconuts which we widely use on our cuisine. This section features coconut uses as a sauce, soup or flavouring.

Lawot Lawot – The creamy version of dinengdeng

Porbidang Kangkong 1

Porbidang Kangkong – If the West has creamy spinach where have this but don’t be fooled by its looks this one is hot, I think that’s why this Filipino Vegetable Recipe got its name “Forbidden Kangkong”

Kulawong Talong – This dish is literally burnt to perfection

Ginataang (Kangkong, Sitaw, Kalabasa, Labong, Talong, Langka, Puso ng Saging) – If there is a ginisa version of the vegetables then there is also ginataan, where it is first sautéed then cooked in coconut cream.

Linubihang Munggo 1

Linubihang Munggo – If mung bean soup is not creamy enough for you then beef it up with coconut milk.

    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.
