Tofu Binagoongan

This Tofu Binagoongan has all the goodness of the classic Binagoongan but none of the fat… all delicious, all healthy.

Tofu Binagoongan

It was another meatless Saturday for me with this Tofu Binagoongan.

And man, did I love every bite of it. I mean it’s delicious — all the flavors of my favorite classic Binagoongan but none of the fat — all healthy.

I was craving for Binagoongan yesterday but since I’m trying to avoid fatty pork meat, I opted to use tofu in place of it. Don’t get me wrong, I still love to have some of my favorite Crispy Pork Binagoongan just not a regular basis like before. These days, medyo pa-healthy na tayo.

I even fried my tofu in olive oil to raise my hdl, lower cholesterol, and my triglycerides. Olive oil is my bff these days (along with the steamer)… If you don’t have any problems about those things, you can use any cooking oil you have available: canola, palm, or vegetable.

Since I love binagoongan so much, I can imagine this Tofu Binagoongan and I will go a looooong way.

And I know you will love it too. ♥♥♥

Pair this with hot steamed rice and some steamed camote tops and you’ve got yourself a nice healthy lunch.

P.S. I added a new category here at The Peach Kitchen called Budget-Friendly and this is a part of that category.
