Vegan Kalabasang (squash) Okoy

This is one of my typical breakfast as it is easy to prepare and goes well with any kind of drink even tea or coffee.


2 cups grated squash (I usually include the skin)

1 tbsp chopped spring onion or leeks

1/2 cup cornstarch

1/2 cup all purpose flour

1 egg (lightly beaten) – this is optional depending on the diet being followed

1 tsp baking powder

salt and pepper

dash of oregano

1tbsp vegetable cooking oil

water if the mixture is too dry

Cooking procedure:

Mix well dry ingredients: salt, pepper, oregano, baking powder, flour and cornstarch. Add squash (kalabasa) and spring onions, mix well. Add egg (optional). Pour the 1tbsp vegetable cooking oil into the mixture and mix well. Add water when necessary.

Heat the (frying pan) under slow fire and pour cooking oil (volume depending on the type of frying pan and the style of the cook; but for me I usually use the small ones for eggs and put oil just enough to coat the pan). I prefer a low fire so as to prevent excesses of the so-called “cooking fumes.”

Put mixture into the heated pan (amount depending on the size of the pan and the preference of the cook). I usually make it thin and spread out so it will be crispy. Turn.

Serve as it is or with your favorite dip or syrup.

i always intend to make a picture of my food but maybe subconsciously I love my privacy most.
