Day 2: Veggies in Coconut Milk



The initial plan is to have "Ginataang Kalabasa and Sitaw" for today.  But since we have other veggies in the fridge, I decided to add them to the dish (thus the new dish name, "Veggies in Coconut Milk". :D)... talking about not being confined to the usual... 😉 😉


  • Squash, sliced to chunks
  • Potatoes, diced
  • Sweet Potatoes (Kamote), diced
  • Sitaw
  • Shredded coconut
  • Baguio beans, sliced
  • Red  onion, chopped
  • White onion, chopped
  • Garlic, minced
  • Turmeric
  • Coconut oil
  • Ground black pepper, freshly ground is the best
  • Salt
  • 1 Tbsp. Veggie paste
  • 1/2 tsp. fermented chili paste


  1. Clean and prepare all the vegetables.
  2. Extract coconut milk from the shredded coconut. We used the first extract only in this dish.
  3. Heat coconut oil in pan, fry turmeric until the color of the oil turned yellow but don't brown the turmeric.  
  4. Remove turmeric from the pan.
  5. In the same pan, saute onion and garlic.  Cook until onions become translucent. 
  6. Add squash, sweet potatoes and potatoes.  
  7. Add coconut milk
  8. Turn heat to low.  Cover and cook the veggies until they are half-cooked
  9. Add in sitaw and baguio beans.  Simmer again for few minutes until sitaw are tender
  10. Add salt and pepper to taste. 
  11. Add veggie paste and chili paste.  
  12. Turn off heat.  
  13. Enjoy.  This can also be served with chili paste on the side
