Recipe: Sauteed Monggo With Vermicelli | #MonggoGulat Ka!

As a new homemaker for less than three years, people would often ask me if I cook at home and what recipes / dishes do I usually prepare? I usually reply with another question “what do you want me to cook, if ever?“.

At home, my husband is my number one fan . . . because there’s only the two of us! 🙂

The Quest for the Perfect Recipe

Earlier today in a lunch date with fellow bloggers, we were talking about our favorite restaurant dishes. One shared that she loves grilled cheese sandwich where my husband was quick to say that for him, the best grilled cheese sandwich was the one I make at home! I didn’t think he would love a simple grilled cheese sandwich.

Breakfast: Leftover #MonggoGulat ka with Vermicelli from dinner served with longganisa & fried rice.

On the other hand, I love pasta dishes or basically any food with tomato sauce. 🙂

My mom’s side of the family loves Sauteed (ginisang) monggo. It’s like party at home every time we have ginisang monggo on the table. I can’t imitate grandma’s delicious ginisang monggo but I was able to come up with my own version of sauteed monggo.
