Ginisang Labanos Recipe

Ginisang Labanos is the Filipino term for sautéed daikon (or white radish). This is a simple vegetable recipe that goes well with hot steamed rice.

This recipe uses sliced pork and shrimp. Although there are some similar recipes that do not use meat or seafood (which makes it purely vegetarian), I opted to add pork and shrimp to enhance the flavor. I did this because daikon is one of the vegetables that require a little bit of an acquired taste to be enjoyed because of its mild bitter flavor. I liked the outcome because there is a collaboration of different flavors which makes it more attractive to the palate.

Aside from Ginisang Labanos, you can also use daikon when cooking pork sinigang or sinigang na hipon. This even makes a good appetizer known as ensaladang labanos or daikon salad.

    Judging from this recipe it is easy to understand why most Filipinos are not healthy.
    A nice vegetable like white radish belongs in a healthy dish without meat, fish or oil.
