Tropical vegetable mix

It is called Pakbet or Pinakbet – our tropical vegetable mix of a dish. It is cooked in shrimp paste together with garlic and onion. It can also be flavored with fried pork if you are not a vegetarian. The common vegetables are squash, bitter gourd, okra or lady finger, water spinach or kangkong and some other tropical vegetables can be added.

The Pinakbet is one good side dish for fried fish. Eaten with steamed rice, the fried fish and the vegetable dish can give me a good meal.
