Eat your gulay

Let's go veg in the Philippines

Tofu, Camote tops and Veggie paste

If you are in a hurry or have only a few minutes to spare and really, really wants to eat, you should try this quick fix.

fried tofu, vegetarian fermented paste and camote (sweet potato) tops

Of course we all have stocks of tofu in our fridge daily. As a vegetarian, I find it very important to have one, just in case of emergency. So this meal does not really take much of your time. Basically, you just need to fry the tofu and make sure that you cover it with some breadings to make it somehow crunchy. I use those locally available and just read the labels to be safe. :) I have some stalks of camote (sweet potato) tops and all you have to do is to remove the leaves and bring it to a quick boil. Make sure you won’t over boil as it will wither and i bet the vitamins gone. We don’t want that to happen so just a quick boil. Then, I have some ready-made vegetarian fermented paste or what we call bagoong here in the Philippines. This vegetarian paste made of black beans, tofu, chili, garlic and onions. I will write about how to make one soon. Make sure you just scoop enough for the camote (sweet potato) tops.

That’s it. Ready meal in 10 minutes. :)Very nutritious and quick. I was also able to check some of the benefits of camote tops just in case.

Happy eating!

    Wow! Ready in 10min?! Will definitely try this-also because I haven’t tried camote in my cooking before. Thanks.
