Ginisang Pechay at Tokwa



This Ginisang Pechay at Tokwa recipe is originally from Mama Sita’s Lutong Bahay recipe book. The book contains a handful of easy-to-cook recipes for home chefs and mommies like me. I first cooked this healthy veggie dish last week together with my husband and we were so surprised that it turned out great. It’s inexpensive and easy to prepare. Plus, it’s a healthy dish for the whole family.

Ginisang Pechay at Tokwa (serves 4)

You can adjust the amount of Mama Sita’s Oyster Sauce to your liking. I put 3 instead of 2 tablespoons. It’s also better if the pechay is half-cooked. Enjoy!
