    The traditional way of cooking mongo guisado is to flavor it with pork pieces or dried fish. There is also a Visayan variation called tinonoang mongo [mung beans cooked with coconut milk]. For me, this is the perfect way to use up leftover lechon kawali. Vegetarians can skip the pork, replacing the fat with canola oil, and still come up with a wonderful comfort food to pair with their other main courses.
