Monggo Guisado with Gata

Monggo Guisado with Gata

Coco Mama Fresh Gata sent over a few packs of their Fresh Gata ( Coconut Milk) a couple of weeks ago along with a recipe for Creamy Monggo Guisado — that’s our usual friday menu of Ginisang Munggo with an added gata for a creamy new twist.

We love Monggo Guisado here at The Peach Kitchen and we haven’t tried it with gata yet… so why not try it, diba? What I did was our normal way of cooking. I just used Malunggay leaves instead of my favorite Ampalaya leaves.  Then I added gata towards the end of cooking. Easy lang diba?

I think you mommies and daddies would love it as well. It’s also a nice Lent recipe that would go well with fried fish.

Kayo, meron ba kayong ibang luto sa Ginisang Munggo? o masarap na ka-partner kaya? Share nyo naman at ng masubukan ko rin.
