Something Simple and Easy, that's what I want to call my Food Friday post for this week. :h

Ingredients used:
  • toasted bread
  • tomatoes, oranges, parsley
  • extra virgin olive oil, freshly ground black pepper
  • kesong puti
Kesong puti (lit. "white cheese" in Filipino) or Filipino fresh cheese is a soft, white cheese, similar to cottage cheese, made from unskimmed carabao's milk, salt and rennet.[1] It has a soft, close texture and slight salty taste. Some commercial versions are slightly sour due to the use of vinegar in place of rennet. This cheese originated from and is produced in the provinces of LagunaBulacanSamar, and Cebu. In the Philippines, it is a popular breakfast fare eaten with the freshly baked local bread called pan de sal.
Everything's just a matter of toasting (the bread slices), slicing (the kesong puti and the toasted bread slices), then assembling them on the plate, together with the other ingredients. The drizzling (of the olive oil) and the grinding of the black pepper over the the cheese and bread finishes everything off. Really easy. And tasty! :$

I read in a food post somewhere that they also fry the kesong puti first (in margarine, or butter) before eating it together with pan de to try that sometime! :P

Olive oil and black pepper..oooh I love that, it looks so yummy. My favorite kesong puti is fried on a dry non-stick skillet until golden brown and crusty. Sarap!

thanks, Imriz
...same here! i normally shy away from the kesong puti being sold in the supermarkets kasi usually parang iba na yung lasa. but when we passed by a store in Tagaytay i just had to try their kesong puti. my eldest son and i loved it, while my youngest said it tasted weird. lol :D

thanks, LM
...oo nga, sarap din siguro to with vigan longganisa! another food combo that i should try! ^_^

thanks, Ms. Oggi
...'frying' the cheese on a non-stick pan is a much better alternative! :)

thanks, Chie son and i like it cold, too! oo nga, perfect with something hot, like coffee or choco....YUM!

I can't remember the last time I had kesong puti. This definitely brings back childhood memories :)
