Laswa  is a simple Ilonggo vegetables soup made with shrimp and a variety of vegetables. A healthy dish I truly miss being away from the Philippines.

  • 1/2 lb. shrimp (any size) divined
  • 1 lb. kalabasa, cubed
  • 1 large eggplant, cut into bite size
  • 8 pieces okra, cut in half
  • 1/2 lb. sitaw, cut into 3 inches
  • 2 cups saluyot leaves (jute)
  • 1 large tomato, quartered
  • 1 small onion, quartered
  • salt and ground pepper to taste
  • 6-8 cups water

  1. Boil water using a deep pot. Once water starts to boil add shrimp, tomato and onion. Season with salt and ground pepper to taste.
  2. Add kalabasa, okra, sitaw and eggplant. Simmer for few minutes. Add malunggay and saluyot.
  3. Remove pot from heat so vegetables won't get overcooked.
  4. Serve hot and enjoy.
