Flower Vegetable

Bulaklak ng kalabasa (squash flower) is eaten as vegetable. Normally it goes with eggplant, ampalaya, and sitaw in the same dish such as pinakbet or vegetable soups (e.g. laswa, bulanglang, dinengdeng). Hence the complementary vegetables are placed beside each other on the table space at the market.
