Mung Beans with Pork Pata and Zucchini

Today I would like to share another version with zucchini. Zucchini is a type of squash but looks more like a cucumber. It is totally not similar with the Pinoy squash in look but they do have similar flowers. Most of overseas Pinoy have made zucchini as an alternative to Pinoy vegetables. Zuzcchini can be added as vegetable ingredients to a lot of Pinoy dishes like tinola, pinakbet, ect. For today I used it with guinisang mungo.

2 cups mung beans
2 large bag baby spinach
2 medium size zucchini, cut into wedges

Ask the butcher to saw cut pork pata crosswise at 1 1/2” thick slices. Wash thoroughly, put in a large pot, cover with enough water, bring to a boil for 3 to 5 minutes. Discard first boiled liquid and rinse the boiled pata off scum. Now pour in fresh water to cover pork pata, add in the crushed garlic, crushed ginger and quartered onion, bring to a boil, and simmer for 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until pork are tender. I the meantime in a separate large sauce pan put the washed mung beans and add in enough water to about 2 to 3 inches above the mung beans line, bring to a boil and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes or until the mung beans disintegrate and the desired liquid consistency is achieved. Take out all scum that rises to the surface and add more water as necessary. When the pork legs are tender separate it from the boiling liquid and keep aside. Using a sieve to filter out the residue add the boiling liquid to the now simmering mung beans. Now sauté the garlic and ginger until fragrant add in the onion and tomato and continue to stir cook for about a minute.
