Spicy Bicol Laing Recipe

Laing will always be a part of my top 5 favorite dishes. This dish is a creamy veggie dish that uses Taro Leaves as its main ingredient. Make sure to use dried taro leaves because eating it raw will cause itchyness to your throat. Add the coconut cream and red chilis in it for a creamy and spicy kick. Try this one at home.
