Ginataang Gulay at Hipon (Vegetables and Shrimps in Coconut Milk)

Ginataang Gulay at Hipon

Since my daughter loves shrimps and eats malunggay (finally!), its about time i make her eat kalabasa (squash).
Well, everything in this dish spells n-u-t-r-i-t-i-o-u-s. I'm sure she'll love the creamy and tasty sauce thickened by the squash. I skipped on chopping the chilis to make sure kiddo will eat this veggie dish.

250 g shrimps
3 cups coconut milk
3 cups chopped kalabasa
1 cup malunggay
1 cup sitaw
3 pcs okra, sliced
1 onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 green chili


  • Pour coconut milk in a pan. Add onions and garlic. Cook over medium heat while continuously stirring until it boils.
  • Add shrimps, then kalabasa. Cover. Cook for about 3 minutes. Then add sitaw and okra. Season with fish sauce as desired. Cover and cook for another 2 minutes.
  • Add malunggay and green chili. mix slowly to evenly cook the leaves. Turn off heat. 
  • Enjoy with rice and grilled or fried fish.
Happy weekend foodies!
