Squash and Eggplant in Coconut Milk

Squash and eggplants are first sauteed and then cooked in coconut milk. Really easy and quick way to cook something healthy. | www.foxyfolksy.com

Squash and eggplants are abundant at this time of the year, so I got some of both the last time we went to buy food. I, personally, like eggplants and in the Philippines, the simplest way to prepare eggplants would be just to fry or boil them and eat them with ‘bagoong’ (shrimp paste) and vinegar dip and this would be the perfect side for fried fish. However, Armin is not that fond of eggplants, and definitely not a fan of shrimp paste. So I have to make it more appetizing for him. We have a dish called ‘ginataang kalabasa’ (Squash in Coconut Milk) in the Philippines and got the inspiration from that for this recipe.Squash and eggplants are first sauteed and then cooked in coconut milk.
