Sauteed Monggo Beans (Ginisang Monggo)

Cooking and eating Filipino food  is a luxury for me in Korea so I seldom shop for these type of food. Not just they’re bit expensive than the way they are used to be in the Philippines but because there’s only a few stores that sell Asian food. When I met my friends in Hyehwa I bought monggo beans, salty egg and smoked fish in the informal Filipino Market, the monggo beans which you could buy for 10-20 pesos is worth 175 pesos.

Ginisang Monggo

I sauteed the monggo beans the other day, I started by boiling the monggo beans in a separate pot. I almost forgot about it, I just remember when the water started to dry.  Next I did is saute garlic and onion in a separate pot and add the left over string beans, then water and monggo beans when brown. The water from the boiled monggo beans is also best to use but since I over boiled my monggo beans I have nothing else to use. When the vegetable is almost cooked I add lettuce and salt to taste.

Sauteed String Beans and Water Spinach

As what I have blogged previously I’ve only used half of the string beans and water spinach on my chicken adobo. I have noticed the left over vegetables are getting old and dry so I immediately sauteed them in garlic and onion. I was pleased with the result after adding a pinch of salt despite that I burnt the garlic and onion.

Fried Kangkong and Spring Beans

Eating these vegetables don’t happen every day as they are not around in the local Korean supermarket so I savor the flavor.
