From the Test Kitchen

This recipe is based on pinakbet, a steamed vegetable dish from the Philippines. Many different vegetables can be used to make pinakbet, including tomato, okra, long beans, and bitter melon. In place of bitter melon, which is an acquired taste, we used mo qua squash, also called fuzzy gourd or winter melon. Its mild flavor is similar to zucchini and is perfect for soaking up the aromatic ginger and garlic.
