Rice up!



Things can really get busy at home especially when some family members now report to their workplaces on certain days of the week and while the kids continue to go about their regular online classes. A practical and delicious solution is to create an all-in-one dish that’s both healthy and hearty.

Today’s one-pan dish is called Moresqueta Tostada, a classic Chinese dish. We’re using the recipe of respected cookbook author Liderato P. Fernandez. Basically, it’s a rice dish made especially filling with vegetables and meats. It’s also a very flexible meal idea as you can serve it for breakfast or as baon. Ingredients can also be mix-matched. For instance, you can substitute the shrimps-and-ham combo for chicken and bacon, or fish and lettuce.

Cook this and enjoy with your family and friends!
