Sinigang gang where you at! 

When we first tried Sinigang, we understood why it was such a crowd favourite! The variety of soft veggies made the stew hearty, and healthy, plus it went perfectly with a steaming bowl of rice. 

It’s also a popular dish to serve for celebrations, which is why we made this recipe for Philippines Independence Day! We took a Singaporean little spin (and hack) on the dish by adding in some Sio Bak, but if you’re looking for a healthier option, Sinigang usually involves stewing pork belly instead. 

Tip: Planning to cook Sinigang for dinner? Portion some extras, because everyone’s sure to help themselves to seconds.
