Easy Oatmeal, Tuna and Veggies Pancake

 

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

pepper

3 tbsp ketchup

PROCEDURE:

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.

2.) Fry!

Finally, enjoy!

Healthy Vegetable, Shimp and Fruit Fritters (Torta)

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:

Torta1

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.

Soysauce

Kalamansi or Lemon

Chopped white onions

Chilli flakes (optional if you don’t like spicy sauce)

ENJOY!!! 🙂

Pasta with Tomato-Cheese 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:

1.) Pasta
2.) Del Monte Tomato-Cheese sauce
3.) Cheese
4.) Salt
5.) Olive Oil
6.) 1 can Century Corned Tuna
7.) 1 tbsp Korean Pepper Paste
8.) Pepper
9.) Pinch of salt
10.) crushed garlic
11.) Onions
12.) Spinach
Steps:

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! 🙂
