  • 1 cup malunggay leaves (if you can't get this, try spinach or kangkong -[swamp cabbage, watercress can also substitute for it - Ken.])
  • 1 cup squash, cubed
  • 1 cup upo (gourd), sliced [substitute with zucchini - Ken]
  • 1 cup tokwa (tofu), cubed and fried (don't fry for a lower-fat dish)
  • 1/2 onion
  • 1 cup water
  • tomatoes
  • Mix tomatoes, onion, and squash in a deep sauce pan or pot.
  • Add water and boil.
  • After 5 minutes cooking, add tokwa and upo.
  • When the upo is almost tender, add malunggay and cook 2 minutes longer or until malunggay leaves are wilted.
  • Remove from heat.
  • Salt and pepper to taste (or instead of salt, you can add patis, it will give a better flavour).
  • Garnish with fresh tomatoes and cilantro or kinchay (Chinese celery).
