Food Friday

22 shared thoughts

That's pancit bihon (a type of noodle) guisado (my version, lol) which we had for lunch. What's different about this noodle (aside from it's greenish tinge) is that it is fortified with malunggay (Moringa oleifera). I was intrigued, so I bought a pack and left it in storage promptly for almost two weeks. LOL.

I only remembered I had it while I was rummaging around, looking for something to cook. That's right, we are now low on stocks. So I mixed it with what was available inside the freezer: ground pork and peas (we also have boneless bangus belly but I don't think it will go well with the noodles...or will it?). I also found some potatoes lying around, so added that too. Plus soy sauce, salt, fish sauce (yes, a must!), ground pepper, garlic, onion, sesame oil, and a bit of dried dill. Of course, we shouldn't forget another important ingredient: calamansi juice (added to the pancit on your plate).

Verdict: hubby said it tasted weird (LOL) while my two-year old ate two servings of the dish. As for me, I liked it. :P

Food Friday Players:

ps. should have done this EONS ago: adding a backlink to those who played as my way of saying thanks for linking back. :)

*I don't think my other blog will be 'operational' real soon...and I don't think I have the time to make another blog, so Food Friday is here to stay. For now. I think. Many many thanks to those who have kept on playing! :)

did you taste the malunggay?
i bought dried noddles [for pancit canton] at a DTI trade fair-fortified with malunggay and saluyot. buti na lang di ko nalasahan ang malunggay at saluyot.:p

thanks, Lani
...happy Friday to you, too! ;)

thanks, LM
...i think just slightly. that's why hubby said it tasted weird. lol. but i think it can be 'covered' up with the addition of more veggies and other ingredients. i wish i can find that pancit canton you mentioned...would love to try that!

thanks, G

Malunggay is very healthy. I wish our PhilAsia grocery store imports them here. I love your "sari-sari" condiments. It actually sounds yummy.:)

My FF this week is a bit unhealthy but yummy. S'mores Pizza

Happy weekend!

I must do research now. I have no freaking idea what you are talking about. considering we are discussing food, which I love, love, love, it's kind of weird that I don't.

Thanks for poking my brain :D.
