I normally cook Baguio beans with pork, but today I experimented a little bit and ditched it. And since I like spicy food, I decided to add a Korean ingredient which is Gochugang or pepper paste. You will need the … Continue reading
My sister and I have been addicted to pancakes lately. But we want the healthier kind, so we add different vegetables depending on what’s available in the kitchen..Or what’s cheaper for the week. Today, I use the following:
1/4 small carrots, julliened
1/4 small red bell pepper, julliened
chopped 1 large stalk onion leaks
2-3 pieces potatoes, sliced very thinly
1 small piece onion, chopped
2 large eggs
basil powder (I used an organic kind, purchased from an organic veggie store in the market)
1/2 pack Crispy Fry breading (spicy..garlic flavor is also a very good choice)
1 small can of Century Corned tuna (spicy)
1 cup flour
1 cup oatmeal
1 tbsp sesame oil (can be omitted)
salt to taste
3 tbsp ketchup
1.) Mix everything! If you feel that it’s a little bit try, you may add water. I prefer it really crispy so I don’t add water.
Today, I will make a non-traditional Pinoy “torta”. The very common torta in the Philippines would be the”Tortang Talong”, which of course uses eggplant as its main ingredient. It is fried with some eggs and optional onions, tomatoes and sometimes with pork. I made this a healthier version since I love vegetables. You will need the following:
Put everything together and fry in cooking Oil. ( I normally use regular Canola oil. The result is this, which I cut using flower and heart-shaped cookie cutters.
As for the dipping sauce, I will post a picture later. But you need the following:
Kalamansi or Lemon
Chopped white onions
Chilli flakes (optional if you don’t like spicy sauce)
This is not necessarily a Pinoy recipe but what can I say? I love cooking pasta. But instead of cooking with meat like Pinoys love to do. I love experimenting with vegetables, spices and other ingredients which I think will taste great. Lastly, I love to put vegetables in many of my dishes. Must be because I am in my mid-30’s that I am beginning to watch my diet and lifestyle. So let’s start!
You will need the following:
2.) Del Monte Tomato-Cheese sauce
5.) Olive Oil
6.) 1 can Century Corned Tuna
7.) 1 tbsp Korean Pepper Paste
9.) Pinch of salt
10.) crushed garlic
1.) Cook pasta as per package instruction. Do not overcook. It must be firm and tender.
2.) Saute garlic and onions. Add the tuna and put water. Let it simmer.
3.) Next, put the sauce and pepper..Simmer.
4.)Add the spinach and simmer.
5.) Garnish with roasted sesame seeds and grated cheese. Dig in! 🙂
