I said I wanted to add more veggies in my life. I saw tortang talong in our office cafeteria and thought to myself, easy. I asked my husband if he’d like for us to try this and he said yes, lol. I honestly thought it was easy and straightforward but I underestimated this dish or was I just overconfident?
I’m not a fan of sweet food so pininyahang manok is definitely not on top of my list. But by some magical moment, I suddenly craved for this. I got the recipe off an app called Filipino Food. The original recipe made use of patis but I didn’t use that since I don’t like the smell. I also skipped the pickles cause 1) I don’t like it and 2) I don’t have it, lol.
I was going to cook my favorite adobo when a thought occurred to me that there are a million ways to cook adobo. I went to Pinterest typed in adobo and a whole new adobo world was opened to me. My husband and I decided to try the adobo sa asin first because the picture looked yummy.
Tinola is second to adobo as my favorite dish. When I was still living with my family, my uncle made this super tasty tinola almost every week. I was craving for some and here is my attempt at it. Spoiler alert, it didn’t taste like the tinola my uncle cooks. It’s probably because I didn’t add talbos ng sili. It’s hard to find it where I live now what’s worse is I don’t even know where the wet market is!!!! Help me.
