Toge Guisado with Tokwa

This is yet another simple and healthy dish I mustered. We are on the run for vegi-based dishes nowadays since our baby boy is starting to eat solid foods. We tried to incorporate vegetables in our food at least every-other-two days (the needed food introduction interval for babies) for Master E. to sample. But this particular vegi-dish was not really intended for him. Lol 
Toge (bean sprout)
Pechay (Chinese cabbage)
Tokwa (tofu), cubed
Garlic and onion
Oyster sauce, salt and pepper
Cooking oil, water 
1) Season tokwa with salt. Fry and set aside.
2) In a pan, sauté garlic and onion. Put toge and add water, let simmer.
3) Add pechay, simmer until cooked.
4) Season with oyster sauce, salt and pepper.
5) Add fried tokwa. Serve.

My take: One-stop-meal. It has all the nutrients you need, protein from toge, vitamins B, C, B1, B6, K and A from toge and folate from pechay. 
Tip: You may opt not to fry tokwa to make it more nutritious. 
The verdict: So easy you can cook this with eyes closed.hehe

  3. I eat most vegetables, even as a kid, but toge i only tasted when i was already in highschool. A classmate had it for lunch and we shared it along with other girls. Hindi kasi nagluluto ng toge sa bahay and i wasn't fond of lumpia before so I also didn't taste it from lumpiang toge. Now, I eat it often and like it too.

    1. When I was young ayaw ko toge, kasi ang hirap linisin. Buti ngaun ready to cook na mga toge sa grocery.

  8. Super like! You combined 2 of my all-time favorites. I wonder, do you know the recipe of Max's adobong kangkong with stuffed tofu, yung ang gusto naming irecreate sa bahay.

    1. Hindi ko pa na-try orderin yon. But that sounds really delicious. I'd cooked stuffed tofu, though, hindi ko sure kung same yon.

  9. One stop meal indeed! Just make sure your tokwa is not made from GMO. Go for the organic produce to be safe. :)
