This is one of my favorite dishes since I was young ginisang gulay or sauted mixed vegetables, because fresh vegetables are abundant in our farm, but for green leaves we have swamp cabbage ( kangkong) and not watercress, but here in my place watercress is all I can have because they do no have kangkong at the market. I still enjoy this dish even if I can not get the original ingredients.
