Ginisang Sardinas na may Talbos ng Sayote or Sautéed Sardines with Chayote Tops is one of the most easy to prepare and budget-friendly ulam that I know of. I like sardines in tomato sauce — especially when paired with hot pandesal or garlic fried rice. But this.. I love this paired with steamed rice. I’d like to think it’s healthy because it’s a fish dish with leafy greens but maybe not so because my fish comes from a can — but still there’s a lot of nutrients you can get from the Talbos ng Sayote. It’s high in vitamin C, folate, and fiber.


It’s very easy to prepare, just sauté your canned sardines in oil, garlic, and onions. Then you add a little water — I like adding more because I like for it to have more sauce for pouring over steamed rice — ma-sauce talaga ako kumain. For this dish I used two cans of regular sardines but you can also use spicy kung mahilig ka sa maanghang. Then you add calamansi juice, soy sauce, and your leafy greens and simmer it until malanta yung talbos. If you don’t have Talbos ng Sayote, you can also use pechay or sayote.

You can season it with patis and pepper if you like pero for me — the taste is okay na so I didn’t add any additional seasonings anymore.
