Ginataang Gulay

Ginataang Gulay is a delicious and flavorful combination of vegetables cooked in coconut milk. What I like about this Filipino vegetable dish is you can use any vegetables in your pantry. Ginataang Gulay is so easy to make and one of the simplest Filipino vegetable dish. 

This dish is usually prepared with different kind of vegetables like squash, beans and okra but with this recipe I added what I have in my fridge and it worked really well. You can also add pork to this recipe and even chicken.
