This week's Featured in Food Friday players are ...

Mr. Erwin, a guest blogger and chef, and Ms. Iska, who owns the blog Their post last week was CEVICHE.

 That shot reminds me of  "Kinilaw", a very popular dish back home (I haven't tried making it myself, though). But this dish is actually quite different (you've got to visit the post to see it!) and turns out to be something that I'd love to try. Ms. Iska's foodie site (she also does 'sketches') is a heaven for those who loves food and enjoys preparing it. Together with guest blogger Chef Erwin, they offer us dishes that are familiar yet has been modified to create something that is all their own. Their recipes, coupled with wonderful informative shots, actually helped me liven up some of my boring dishes. Oh yes, it did! :)

My food post for this week is one of those boring dishes, lol. But it's really easy: Squash with Moringa in Coconut Milk.

  • Squash
  • Moringa leaves
  • Coconut milk/cream (you may use powder or canned; I prefer to use freshly grated coconut and wring the liquid out. basically, I use "thin" {second pressing, with around 2 cups of water added} and "thick" {obtained during the first pressing, with about half a cup of water added} coconut milk, reserving the latter during the last phase of the cooking)
  • Bell pepper (red)
  • Ginger, Chili, Salt
  • Fish Sauce (optional)

  • Clean and cut squash. Put inside a pot together with "thin" coconut milk. Dump in the crushed ginger, bell pepper slices, chili, and salt.
  • Let boil, then simmer for a couple of minutes until squash is half-cooked.
  • Add the moringa leaves; wait for about a minute, then mix in the "thick" coconut milk. Continue mixing until it starts simmering again. Taste and adjust seasoning. I added fish sauce. Turn off fire.
  • Serve hot.

Loved it with fried salted fish and rice. Ahhh, soul food! :D

I'm interested to try that ceviche. The only kinilaw I've eaten is kinilaw na puso ng saging. And nope, I don't agree with you, your vegetable dish is not boring. It's a colorful and healthy dish.
