We are now on our 7th last day of the 1 week ulam/viand challenge…yey for me! LOL.
DAY 7 of 7: Mixed veggies
Ingredients (P 92 if you are gonna buy them but all the ingredients are from our garden except sayote, ginger, onion, garlic, salt and pepper):
7 pcs okra, sliced (P 10)
1 cup himbabao (P 30)
1/2 cup malunggay leaves (P 10)
3 pcs medium size tomato (P 15)
1 pc medium size sayote (P 10)
1 pc thumb size ginger, pounded (P 5)
1 pc red onion, chopped (P 5)
3 cloves garlic, chopped (P 5)
1 tsp salt (P 1)
1/4 tsp black pepper (P 1)
2 cups chicken or pork broth (if you don’t want to buy pork or chicken to make the broth you can just use plain water)
Preparation (5 minutes):
Allow sayote and tomato to get cooked first in the broth then add all the other ingredients and boil for 1 minute.
Note: we already know the benefits of okra, malunggay, tomato, ginger, onion, and garlic – you can check out previous posts. for the himbabao, it is rich in vitamin A, thiamin, phosphorus and iron.
Did I just say you can modify them? Yes you can! Whatever veggies available in your garden or the nearest market will do. What I love about this dish is that you are making a healthy meal the easiest way.
I usually use low to no salt and oil as much as I can because we are surrounded by unhealthy food already. Your body will thank you for making your own healthy dish.

***in my dishes, I do not always measure my ingredient, I usually estimate them. If you are new in cooking, do not worry, the measurements I made in my previous posts won’t make your dish too salty but it can be bland (which I prefer) to some. Make sure to taste your dish before serving them. *wink*
