Ginataang Sigarilyas With Tinapang Bangus

Ginataang Sigarilyas With Tinapang Bangus

In my continuous effort to add veggies to my family’s diet, yesterday’s lunch is Ginataang Sigarilyas with Tinapang Bangus (Winged Bean and Smoked Milkfish in Coconut Milk). This dish is already good eaten by itself, paired with quinoa, or steamed rice because the tinapang bangus (smoked milkfish) gives it a lot of smoky, meaty flavor.

But I know peanutbutter and Ykaie would not be able to stand eating this alone if it’s not paired with some kind of meat. So I paired this with fried chicken.

Guess what? The fried chicken was well received and were done with in no time. But this veggie dish? Well,  let’s just say…. there were a lot of leftovers. Of course, I was unhappy. It’s already a tasty vegetable dish, what’s not to like?

This is one of my problems when it comes to vegetables. My family is just not too fond of them. Yes, they eat vegetables but only to a certain extent… and most of the time, there has to be meat — fried chicken, fried liempo, roasted chicken, beef, pork chops…

Today’s lunch is Beef Mechado. The pot is all clean, they were very happy to eat all the carrots and potatoes. How about that?
