Today's dinner was simple. I missed some of the  food I grew up eating. It's a good thing I saw kulitis in the hypermarket where I usually get my groceries.

Kulitis, a.k.a Amaranth greens, a.k.a, Chinese spinach,  can be eaten raw or cookedl.

Ginataang manok (Chicken in coconut milk) is simply delicious. Add kalabasa (pumpkin) and kulitis (amaranth greens), and it will make your Paleo meal almost perfect.

It's the first time I cooked this for my family and straight away, their tastebuds welcomed it.

Anyways, here are my ingredients:

4 pieces chicken ribs
1/2 medium sized pumpkin, cubed
a bunch of amaranth greens
2 onions, cut in half
1 cup coconut milk
1 cup water
sea salt
spring onion
garlic powder
black pepper, crushed

Broil the chicken in the water with the onions for 30 minutes. Add in the pumpkin and simmer for another 10 minutes. Add coconut milk and amaranth greens and simmer again for 10 more minutes. Throw in the diced spring onions and sprinkle with garlic powder. Add sea salt to taste.

I also put 2 medium sized sweet potato in the oven. Baked for 60 minutes. And served the sweet potato with the Ginataang manok or chicken in coconut milk.

Totally Filipino food, totally Paleo.
