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