Cream of Mushroom Soup

Cream of Mushroom Soup

When I went home to the Philippines last January, one of the things I brought back to Germany were some food that I cannot easily find here, like dried spices and canned foods because they were the easiest to transport. If it was up to me I would have brought all the food stuff I could but I guess I would have a problem with the customs. One of the items I brought was Cream of Mushroom Soup  from Campbell's, yep the canned one. I usually use it as sauce from a chicken…Read more→
Chicken Tinola

Chicken Tinola

Chicken Tinola or just Tinola is 100% Filipino dish. You will not find anything like it from our neighboring Asian countries or even around the globe. I would say that next to Adobo, Tinola is the most favorite dish in every Filipino household commonly served for lunch or dinner...with rice of course. Put simply, Tinola is a chicken soup with lots of ginger and goodness in it. It is no wonder that everytime I feel that I am about to get sick or when it is getting too cold for me, I would crave for this…Read more→
Arroz Caldo (Rice Porridge)

Arroz Caldo (Rice Porridge)

Arroz Caldo is a Filipino rice porridge or congee , made with glutinous or sticky rice and flavored with ginger and other spices. The main difference of Arroz Caldo from other rice porridge, like Goto or Lugaw, is that it uses chicken meat and sometimes chicken liver and hard-boiled egg.  Although it is known to be a good comfort food for the sick especially during the rainy season, it is also usually served as breakfast because it is filling and nutritious.

One cold day, Armin suddenly asked for a soup and I was caught unprepared. Usually, I make 'Sopas' which is a Filipino version of chicken noodle soup cooked with milk and he loves it. But at that time, we didn't have chicken and we just ran out of milk and we had a really ugly cold weather that neither of us wanted to go out and buy some. So I rummage around our fridge and cupboards to see what we have at hand. That is how this soup came to be. It is…Read more→
Mung Bean Soup (Ginisang Munggo)

Mung Bean Soup (Ginisang Munggo)

This is  another Filipino food that I really missed but not anymore because  only recently a friend of mine, who is also a Filipina I met here in Germany invited me over her place with our other friends for a Filipino lunch! She served Ginisang Munggo or Mung Bean Soup with other equally missed dishes! It is truly a feast whenever we have this get together. It is not like I do not cook Filipino food at home, I actually do quite often but sharing them with another Filipino makes the food extra special and…Read more→
