Munggo Guisado (Mung Beans) is also one of my favorite Filipino food dishes. It is a Filipino Super food signature dish with its super simple ingredients but it is packed with super high nutrients. The ingredient we use is usually ampalaya leaves (bitter melon leaves) or better melon fruit. You can also use spinach as a substitute if no ampalaya leaves, you can also use cabbage or moringa fresh leaves and for the meaty taste you want, you can use leftover, fresh or dried chicken, beef, port or even fish. You can add any leafy vegetables you want and you can also add squash, green beans and okra.

In our province of Bohol, Philippines we all used those ingredients and will add one more yummy ingredient, our famous “Coconut Milk” and it’s all perfect! It’s a bowl full of vitamins and nutrients.

You can soak munggo beans in enough water overnight letting the beans take its own shell off, in this process the bean will be soft so you won’t need to boil the beans for 50 minutes. You just directly add the beans after you sauté the pork belly.

Fried Tofu with Asian Sauce

Fried Tofu with Asian Sauce

TofuHave you ever tried Tofu? Tofu, also know is bean curd, is usually made by coagulating soy milk and pressing the curds into soft white blocks.

It was first made during the Chinese Han Dynasty about 2000 years ago!  Tofu is prevalent in Asian and West African cuisines,  comes in soft, medium, firm, and extra firm blocks, and has a subtle flavor.  It is used in both sweet and savory dishes.  It is often seasoned or marinated to suit the dish.

Tofu is low in calories and pretty high on protein and Iron.  It can also be high in calcium and magnesium depending on what is used to make it.

As I mentioned earlier Tofu is usually made with soy milk, but recently they’ve started making Almond, Egg, Sesame, and Peanut Tofus.  I haven’t tried the other varieties, I stick with regular Soy Tofu because it’s the easiest to find and probably the least expensive.

Now having said all that doesn’t it sound like the next best wonder food?  I’m not sure about that, but it is a great alternative when you’re on a diet or are watching your fat intake.

I see Tofu as a blank canvas.  It’s mostly bland so you can use it in many things to add more protein and calcium.  I add it to stir-fries and lumpia (Filipino egg rolls) where it sort of acts as a healthy filler.  But every now and then I make it as my main meatless dish or as a side dish.  It’s a great addition to grilled meats!

Here is one of my favorite recipes, I call it Fried Tofu with Asian Sauce.  You can serve it as a vegan main course with steamed rice or as a side dish.  It goes well with Spicy Korean Kalbi  Skewers and Salt & Pepper Shrimp!  Best of all it’s easy and quick to make!

You can serve it hot or cold!  If you want to serve it cold you can make it a few hours ahead of time and chill in the refrigerator.  As a side dish I love it cold!

Fried Tofu with Asian Sauce

Ingredients:

1 Block Firm Tofu

3 Tbs. Sesame Oil (2 Tbs. for frying, the remaining for the sauce)

1/4 Cup Rice Vinegar (you can find this in Asian Markets, if you can’t you may substitute with Apple Cider Vinegar)

1/4 Cup Soy Sauce

White Sesame Seeds for garnish

Fried Tofu directions:

Heat 2 Tbs. Sesame Oil
