Mouthwatering Pinakbet with Bagnet Recipe

Everyone is not really down for a veggie dish, but why not level up a veggie dish with a meaty twist? Well, today you will find out how powerful a “sinful” addition could do! We present you… Pinakbet with Bagnet!

Pinakbet is a veggie dish that is popular among Filipinos. It is well-known among Tagalogs and Ilocanos as each has a version that is sure to tickle your tastebuds. Curious what’s the difference between the two? It all boils down to the bagoong – bagoong alamang or shrimp paste is to Pinakbet Tagalog, while bagoong isda or fermented fish is to Pinakbet Ilocano.

This veggie dish from the Philippjnes can be served as an everyday viand for the family or even when you have some friends over. Pinakbet, as we have mentioned, is a vegetable dish, so you bet a variance of vegetables — ideally the freshest vegetables you could find — is present in this dish, alongside some protein such as pork and prawns.

However, as much as we love a classic veggie-filled Pinakbet, we opted to play it up a bit and release the badasses in us, hence our version which we like to call Pinakbet with Bagnet. It has all the things we, and probably you, love in a Pinakbet, but we sure loaded it up with extra protein and fun!

This one is also great if you want someone who is not really a fan of vegetables to try a vegetable dish, because they might say no to the veggies, but would they be able to say no to bagnet? In this recipe video we will show you how we make our delectable Pinakbet with Bagnet today!
