INGRID NIETO Cooks: Meatless Menudo

Welcome to another healthy, meat-free cooking session! We tried out Astig Vegan’s version of Filipino Vegan Menudo but we didn’t have all the ingredients listed on her website so we just worked with what was available at home.

Ingredients:

-Tofu (diced and fried)

-Garbanzos/Chickpeas

-Garlic (3-4 big cloves, minced)

-Onion (medium, chopped)

-Tomato (3-4 pieces, chopped)

-1 small packet of tomato paste

-1/2 cup soy sauce

It wasn’t bad for a first try and I’m glad it DID taste like menudo. Of course, I know we can make it taste richer and better when we cook this again. Let me know if you try this at home. Thanks Astig Vegan for the recipe & inspiration!

Here are the ingredients: -Half a block of tofu -2 eggplants -Garlic and onion -Toyo (soy sauce) -Kalamansi Please let me know if you get to try this for yourself! I love that the ingredients can be found in the market or grocery store and that it’s so easy to cook.
