pinakbet recipe

Date:    Thu, 09 Sep 93 10:44:31 PDT
 From:    gboja@romenda.esd.sgi.com (Glenda Ramil)
 2 or 3 eggplants (cut up)
 okra   (i put a lot since I love okra)
 string beans (cut up into 2-in lenghts)
 bittersquash melon (cut in half, remove seeds and then cut up
                     into pieces
 tomatoes (lots of it)
 lima beans  (optional)
 salt to taste
 In a big pot, put all the vegetables except tomatoes.  Put the
 cut up tomatoes on top of the vegetables.  Sprinkle salt on top.
 Cook in medium heat.  When boiling, shake the pot to redistribute
 the vegetables.  Taste and add more salt if neccessary.  Cook 
 until vegetables are soft/done.  It would probably be good to
 use a non-stick pot since the vegetables tend to stick or you
 could add a little bit of water to the mixture before cooking.
 If you dont object to using MSG, put some if you want.  I've
 seen versions of this recipe w/ slices of ginger added and
 it also tastes good.  Server/eat over rice.  This is a filipino
 dish called "pinakbet".  Of course non-veg versions of this
 dish also exist.
