Today’s breakfast was so heavy that we stirred from our laptops to prepare lunch way past noon. We were hungry, so it was a throw-in-anything-you-can-find stew meal. Which turned out really good!

I can’t believe three people licked the pot clean. If you want to try it, it’s just:

  • a potato
  • a handful of sitaw
  • two eggplants
  • 5-7 pcs of okra
  • a bunch of malunggay leaves
  • half an onion
  • leftover grilled bangus fillet

Bulanglang with Fish

And it’s simply:

  1. Chop up the veggies. Cup up the fish fillet.
  2. Get a pot and bring a cup or two of water to a boil (really depends how soupy you want it).
  3. Throw in the potatoes. Before they get cooked, throw in the onion and sitaw. Let it boil a bit.
  4. Now’s probably a good time to add salt and pepper to taste. I threw in some dried oregano and thyme (smelled nice).
  5. Add the eggplants and okra. Don’t let it get mushy!
  6. Add the fish. Let it just sit around there simmering.
  7. Add the malunggay just before you turn off the stove. Put a lid on it and let it cook in the steam.
  8. Serve with toasted garlic bits (which I didn’t have) and brown rice (which was perfect).
