That was today’s lunch. I actually had another photo, taken with the regular cam, of lunch yesterday. It was too late when I remembered that it was phoneography month so I took another one with the phone’s camera to play along.
Lunch was a modified version of our local “sopas” (literally…soup)…and how can a true-blue Asian have any meal without rice?
For the curious foodies:
Boiled chicken strips
Wombok (we call it Baguio pechay, I’m not sure what it is in English)
Spices: Ginger, Pepper, Salt (unfortunately this one had lots of it)
Shell pasta. Or macaroni pasta. Actually whatever pasta you have in the kitchen will do.
How to cook it:
Cook the chicken in boiling water. You can keep the soup stock afterwards for another dish or day. Use your fingers or a knife to strip the meat off the bones. Set the meat aside.
The chicken we used were actually left-overs from another dish we had made earlier. But if you’re starting with fresh chicken, you can use the same soup stock you cooked the chicken with.
Add the ginger, pepper and pasta. Cook pasta till al dente.
Add carrots and wombok. Simmer till veggies are cooked. Finally add the salt to taste.
As for the rice, just cook/boil rice grains in water over a low fire till white and soft.
I left out the evaporated milk which is normally added at the end. My kids don’t like it with the milk.
There you have it folks. My “lunchtime” take on this week’s photo challenge hosted by The Daily Post. Check out the other lunchtime-themed photos taken by bloggers around the world by clicking here or taste a sample by clicking any of the links below. Bon Apetit!
