Ms. Sumee, with her post "Roasted Brussel Sprouts", on her blog: Sumee's Culinary Bites.

I love eating vegetables, and this is one veggie that I'd love to try! Ms. Sumee's recipe is so simple, it's no wonder it became such a hit with her family! Want to know how she prepared them? Do click on the shot!

White Squash with Sardines (In Tomato Sauce), that's what I cooked last night. First time I have ever served that veggie here at home, and am so glad my kids liked it. I liked it, too. :)


  • White Squash
  • Canned sardines in tomato sauce
  • moringa leaves
  • coconut oil
  • onion, garlic, black pepper, salt
  • calamansi juice
  • soy sauce (optional)


  • Skin the white squash then cut and remove the seeds. Dice and set aside.
  • Place coconut oil (use your favorite oil) on pan and saute the onions and garlic for a few minutes. Dump in the diced white squash and mix. Add salt and pepper. Continue cooking till it gets tender (half-cooked), which was roughly around five minutes in my case. 
  • Add the canned sardines, then let it simmer for another five to seven minutes.
  • A few dashes of soy sauce was added at this point. Mix and adjust seasoning.
  • Turn off heat and add in a handful of moringa leaves.
  • Wait for around two minutes, squeeze some calamansi (to get the juice),  then serve.
  • Loved it with rice and some crispy fried squid.

Ah... the classic tinapa! Goes well with many familiar ingredients. My favorite bits of your dish Maiylah are the moringa leaves hands down.
