made it last week without baboy or bagoong. the basic recipe, method and substitution i followed is from here: http://oggi-icandothat.blogspot.com/2007/11/pinakbet.html. i love it because it only took 10 minutes to cook, it was meatless, the food is simple but highly nutritious, and i could eat it without rice and still feel satisfied.
it is food that fits in with my goals of living simply, low levels of fuss and expense and waste.
i am making small changes in the way i cook. i don’t peel skin or cut out parts of food if i know cooking it for a time will make it edible (ginger and potato skin, cook okra whole); wash minimally and use as little cooking equipment as possible.
