I can't cook them since they all have meat in them. You can't have tinola without the chicken, sinigang, caldereta, dinuguan, binagoongan, and sisig without pork or beef. I kept thinking of famous Filipino dishes that doesn't involve any amount of meat that my head started to ache, when I suddenly realized, hey why deprive myself of my Filipino favorites when I can try cook them without the meat? I certainly can't cook my top favorites I mentioned earlier without the meat, but that shouldn't stop me from trying to cook my other favorites, meat free right? Pinakbet is one of my favorites. I used to order it in every Filipino restaurants we dine in each time. It's always on the table! Pinakbet have shrimp paste and pork, but I skipped those two in this recipe, replaced the pork with tofu to make it vegetarian friendly. Parboil the Kalabasa, careful not to overcook. Heat oil in a pan and fry the chopped eggplants, turning to the other side when it's slightly browned. Heat oil in a wok. Saute garlic and onion until garlic is almost golden brown and onion is soft. Add the ampalaya and stirfry for about 15 seconds. Add the sliced okra and tomatoes and stir fry for another 15 seconds. Add the kalabasa and fried eggplant, and string beans. Pour 1/2 cup of water and 3 tbsp of soysauce. The original pinakbet is sauteed with shrimp paste which makes it salty, so gradually adjust the saltiness to imitate the saltiness of the shrimp paste. Stir fry for a few more minutes until you see the colors of the veggies become vibrant. If it gets too dry, just add another half a cup of water and adjust the saltiness accordingly. Lastly, add the fried tofu. The tofu is used to replace pork in the dish.
