Missing Greens in your diet?
Not anymore with this delicious recipe, full of beautiful, fresh & crunchy veggies!
– Remember healthy is not Boring
Not Getting enough healthy green and vegetables in our diet can be a common issue, sometimes because we don’t know how to include them in our meals or just because we prepare all the time the same recipes all with the same ingredients. That means, we can have a deficiency of certain nutrients and I am sure that those ingredients that you are avoiding or eating less are the Nourishing Greens as I call them (leafy greens, green beans, fresh broccoli, green bell pepper, edamame, etc).
Looking for inspiration to prepare something fun and tasty, I decided to look into Filipino food, their food is a mix of sweet, and savory and prepared with ingredients that are more or less easy to find, they include a lot of vegetables, and generally are not spicy, so no worries!.
This original recipe in Philippines is called ginisang, they have many ways to do it, including chicken, pork, pumpkin, etc. I’m not preparing exactly as they do but I took inspiration from it to create my own version. I chose the family’s favorite greens to prepare and firm tofu as a protein source (see image above). So you can also personalize yours, remember this is home-cooking and think about the people that are going to eat it at home, hubby, kids, friends, and you, and also the local food available in your place.!
Something that I really like in this recipe is that you do most of the cooking in one pan, this help also to integrate all the flavors (image below) and clean the kitchen faster.
