Another Saturday Brunch

You could tell we had a blast today..yes, we had another Saturday Brunch. We had nilasing na hipon, pork chop, shanghai lumpia, sotanghon soup and fried rice. My daughter had a toast on the side. She’s not a big breakfast eater and so she thought she’d have a slice of bread. However, as soon as she tasted my nilasing na hipon, she had 2 servings of fried rice and forgot about the toast. After all, it was past noon when we had our brunch. I bet you, we are going to have the same for dinner tonight. We had a lot of left overs.

The lumpia was part of our dinner one night and you could find the recipe here. For the nilasing na hipon and fried rice, they’re coming

For my sotanghon soup, I had the chicken back from chicken curry I cooked for the office. I boiled this for about ½ hour and I used this as my stock.

My ingredients:

1 tbsp of olive oil
Lost of chopped ginger (about 1 tsp)
Lots of chopped garlic (about 1 tsp)
½ onions, coarsely chopped

Minced chicken meat (about ¾ cup)
1 medium carrot thinly sliced
1 stalk of celery, chopped
1 tsp of chicken stock seasoning (Knorr)
about 50 gms of sotanghon, soaked in lukewarm water

I sautéed the garlic, onion and ginger for about 1 minute. I added the chicken meat. I stirred it a bit and then added the carrots and the celery. After about a minute I added the chicken stock (about 4 cups) in. I let it boil. Once it boiled, I seasoned the soup with the knorr chicken stock seasoning and then added the sotanghon noodles in. I cooked for another 2 minutes. I served it hot in a bowl. Sotanghon Soup is always a hit with my family.
