Dinengdeng with fried fish

Dinengdeng is an Ilocano dish from the Philippines.There are different varieties of dinengdeng all over the Ilocano Region, In fact in Agoo, La Union they're celebrating the dinengdeng festival every year in the month of May.One of the highlights of the festival is they show us the 100 varieties of dinengdeng.

Dinengdeng is one of the healthiest dish you can make because it does not require pork or any meat to make it delicious,fried or grilled fish will do and the sweetness coming from the freshly picked vegetables.The ingredients indicated above can be replace by other vegetables.Not only this vegetables are cheap but also they have lot of nutrients.
