Hi everyone, it’s been a while I wasn’t able to update here, I think almost four months now :(. Last April 27, Saturday we gathered here in my flat once again our church community the class of St. Vincent de Paul (MS 6). And these were what I’ve prepared for our dinner.

Spinach and Crab Ginataan

My Spinach and Crab in Coconut Milk (Ginataan). Something different, instead of Laeng, Langka or Sitaw and Kalabasa. During April and May, Spinach is very cheap. You could get only one euro for one kilo near our place.


* 2 kg Spinach, fresh one not the frozen one
* 1 kg Crabs (Alimasag)
* 800 ml Coconut Milk
* Ginger
* Onion
* Some Salt or Ginisang bagoong alamang would go also for seasoning


* Wash spinach and drain thouroughly otherwise if you add coconut milk would be watery. I diid cook coconut milk first with ginger, onion and sauted shrimps paste. Then add crabs. When crabs nearly done add spinach until everything done. Serve with hot rice and fried fish (Fried Orata). “Maramng makakain na kanin kapag ganito ang ulam! šŸ˜›

Heto pa yong ibang ulam…
