Traditional Filipino cuisine is the result of various cultural influences from the different foreign encounters the people of the country have faced throughout history.
Despite what many think, there are many Filipino dishes that are healthy, low-fat, full of vegetables and more importantly, easy to cook!
- 1 package of thin rice noodles
- 2 boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into thin strips
- Few pieces of cooked shrimp (optional)
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 3 shallots or 1 onion, minced
- 1 carrot, sliced into strips
- 2 celery, diced
- ¼ cabbage, sliced into strips
- 2 cups of chicken broth
- ½ tsp olive oil
- 3 tbsp soy sauce
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 lime (optional)
Soak the rice noodles for about 10 minutes. Sautée the garlic and shallots (or onion) in olive oil. Add chicken, soy sauce and season with salt and pepper. Sautée until chicken is cooked or lightly brown.
Add carrot, celery, and shrimp. Cover and cook for a few minutes, then add sliced cabbage and chicken broth. Bring to a boil. Once the carrots and celery have softened a bit, add the rice noodles. Mix well to distribute the flavors and cook for a few more minutes until the noodles are soft.
Serve with sliced limes on the side. Serves 4.
