    i have to agree w/ pinaygourmet...i've never heard of a pinakbet w/out shrimp paste or bagoong. it's the main ingredient in the dish! really makes quite a difference.

    I noticed there wasn't any bagoong in this. Actually, my grandma never used bagoong either, but instead rendered a few pieces of fatty pork (the kind for chicharron) at the bottom of the pan with the garlic before adding the vegetables. Also, I noticed the lack of pariya. I guess omitting the bagoong and the bittermelon, the dish is a little more accessible to non-Filipinos.

    This recipe is missing the key ingredient, shrimp paste or bagoong, but I guess this is a vegetarian version. I normally add lots of tomatoes and sautee it with shirmp paste and browned pork bits, then the veggies. I would add bitter melon or ampalaya as well. If you go to Ilocos, try the Pinakbet at the Villa Angela B&B, its awesome!

    This turned out very good. The flavor wasn't as strong like other Filipino recipes but that was a nice change. We could taste the vegetables with an essence of seasonings. It also smelled really good cooking. The only 2 things I changed were: I used regular eggplant as I couldn't find Japanese ones and I didn't know what "red squash" was so I went for a reddish fleshed squash that I could find which ended up being butternut. Still worked out great. Thanks for the recipe.
