Squash, Long Beans, and Shrimp in Coconut Milk

Ginataang Sitaw, Kalabasa, at Hipon

Ginataang Sitaw, Kalabasa, at Hipon is one of our favorite ulam because it’s healthy and  so flavorful. The combination of shrimp and coconut milk makes the sauce really tasty! But if you’re allergic to shrimp or you just don’t like it, you can also cook this with pork, squid, or chicken.

If you’re vegetarian or trying to avoid meat, you can cook this plain — just sitaw, squash, and coconut milk. Then pair this with fried fish, fried chicken, or fried pork.

My Acid Reflux has been on hyperdrive since September and I don’t know why. So I’m kinda sticking to “healthier” meals for now to avoid triggering it.
