GINISANG GULAY

It’s harvesting season! If you’re an avid reader of my blogs, you’ll know how proud I am for raising these babies (veggies)! I was not good with planting in the past but now I can grow my own veggies and I can’t wait to eat them! I was able to harvest some papaya, ampalaya, squash, pechay, eggplant, sitaw and okra. Let me share with you the fruit, I mean veggies, of my labor.

Since I have a widely varied vegetables on hand, I can’t wait to think about the different dishes I can use them to. Since I can’t really wait to eat them, I sticked to the classic sauteed veggies. Ginisang gulay is much simpler than other veggie recipes. What I love about it is that you can really feel and taste the veggie since it is mildly “cooked”. No special sauces, just the veggies and me. Let’s feel all the bitterness from the ampalaya, the saliva from the okra and the fiber from the sitaw. This is when we say, “the simpler, the better’!

If you wanna know how to make some ginisang gulay at home, read and follow the simple steps below. Happy cooking!

HOW TO COOK GINISANG GULAY

Ginisang gulay is literally sauteing various vegetables at once. But for starters, this might be a trick dish so get ready to cook the recipe with us. Let Yummy Kitchen guide you!

First, prepare your vegetables. Peel what you need to peel, and then slice them into appropriate sizes. Sometimes, there are already cut vegetable packages you can buy from the market. They are usually the chopsuey set and the pakbet set. You can stick with those or choose your own veggies for a customized experience.

Let’s start with searing our pork belly for a flavorful oil. If you want a vegan version of this, you can omit this first step and simply use any vegetable oil. Saute the aromatics and bagoong alamang. The rest of the steps would involve adding the vegetables one type at a time until all veggies are sauteed and well cooked, and now you have your ginisang gulay.

Whatever vegetable you would like to include in this dish, analyze them first before adding them to the pan. In this recipe, I used a variety of vegetables. I added the sitaw and kalabasa first into the pan since they are tough ones, meaning they require extra time to cook. The eggplant, okra and ampalaya are relatively softer and cooks fast. So by the time the ampalaya and okra are fully cooked, the kalabasa and sitaw are cooked enough too. This is also a good way of introducing different type of veggies to your kids!

Ginisang gulay pairs best with fried fish and some hot steaming rice. You can eat this as a snack or appetizer too. Yum!
