1. In a medium sized pot, put all the vegetables. Pour in bagoong and place bagnet on top then add water.

I always crave for this recipe wherever I go. I’ve been away from our place (Ilocos) for almost 4 years already and I still go back ofcourse to be with my family and to enjoy the promising dishes of the place.
