I always wanted my kids to eat vegetables. So I decided to cook . I bought some ingredients in a nearby wet market. As I was preparing it. I refrain from singing or humming. According my mom telling me not to do so for the bitter gourd will release more bitterness. So it would be impossible to eat it. Until now I am doing it.
"Pinakbet "is the local name.The ingredients are eggplant , okra , squash , string beans , bitter gourd and some salted fish " alamang". It is optional to put some fish or pork.
It is a yummy dish every Filipino loves to eat. This is one way of encouraging my kids to eat vegetable. Maybe next time I will try some Oriental dish for the sake of eating veggies.
