A few weeks into my move, I unexpectedly had to go back home. After heading back, I was horribly homesick.
It was quite an emotional time and I was feeling like homey, comfort food.
So I cooked Sinigang. I had taken packets of my favorite Pilipino food to bring over since I wasn’t sure I would find that stuff here. Singang is a wonderfully complex sour, tamarind soup that takes quite a while to make with a multitude of ingredients.
This my ghetto version…
BTW I normally eat rice every day, but I brought over a big Costco bag of Quinoa so I’ve been substituting that in everything.
- Sinigang packet
- Pork Belly
- Brown Onion
It was not great. Next time I’ll try adding more stuff to it.
