Sinigang is one of the most popular and delicious main courses in the Philippines. A Filipino soup that tastes sour yet savoury. Usually eaten with steamed rice and a satisfying meal during a cold season.

Bok choy leaves
String beans
Bay leaves
Ground pepper.

Where I live here, people who are infected with the flu usually cook such soups for themselves. Because this soup contains both meat and vegetables. And that may actually be reason enough to get well when we're sick.
I love these kinds of dishes with lots of vegetables. Especially okra. 😃

Thank you for your comment. Yes, delicious and full of healing properties. Regards.
