adobo long beans (adobong sitaw) recipe on fmitk.com

Did you know you can “adobo” anything? In Filipino cuisine, “adobo” just means cooked with vinegar, soy sauce and garlic. If you’ve never adobo’d anything, this recipe covers the basic and works with pretty much any vegetable. As you eat more adobo’d things, you’ll come up with a ratio of soy sauce to vinegar that suits your tastebuds. I like equal parts of each, but sometimes I like a little more soy, sometimes a little more vinegar. Taste it and adjust until it tastes good to you (ain’t that what cooking is all about?).  Chicken adobo is also a great, easy meal; my version uses coconut to add a little richness to the sauce.

Let’s adobo some veggies!

easy peasy lemon squeezy, right? I make this as a side dish and serve with rice and store-bought rotisserie chicken when I’m tight on time (also, when I’m lazy).

    Yum, looks good! I love the addition of the onions. I’ve seen adobong mushrooms before and I want to try it out someday. Adding mushrooms also sounds like a good way to stretch a chicken adobo meal to feed more people. 🙂 Love your website!!
