The Happy Home Cook: Vegan Nilaga

The Happy Home Cook: Vegan Nilaga

If I have to name a dish I’ve cooked the most, that would be a Filipino soup called Nilaga.  Often times I want a dish that I can cook fast with ingredients I already have in hand like celery, carrots, cabbage, and squash. When I’m feeling generous, I’ll add quinoa too. And once I put the vegetables to a boil and mashed the squash into the broth, I’ll turn off the heat and enjoy a hot bowl of this nourishing soup. Just like that, it has become my go-to favorite.

The Happy Home Cook: Quinoa Lugaw

The Happy Home Cook: Quinoa Lugaw

Lugaw is a Filipino porridge with rice as its main ingredient no less. Lately though, my parents have been watching their sugar intake. My dad is diabetic and avoids white rice (which could be tough when you love Filipino food). I don’t want him to break his low-sugar diet but I also don’t want him to give up entirely on Filipino food. So when I make him lugaw, I switch rice to quinoa. Much to everyone’s surprise, the quinoa lugaw doesn’t taste that much different from its rice counterpart.
