Photostory: Egg Sarciado for Lunch

Saturday, July 7, 2012

Yesterday, we went to the wet market and grocery to buy all the ingredients and stuffs we need for our weekly menu next week. Market day should be today but we have to go to Divisoria after lunch to pick up my online shop stocks. For sure, we can't go to market and grocery anymore after that.

I am searching for a new recipe that is simple, budget saver and healthy, for our weekly menu (that will start today). I have to consider too that we have a toddler who needs adequate nutrition. Then, I remember Del Monte Kitchenomics so I googled their website. I am happy I found one recipe that is sure to be healthy.

I am familiar with Sarciado but the main ingredient is fish, be it tilapia or bangus, or galunggong. This is the first time I have learned about Egg Sarciado so I give it a try and here it is:

Egg Sarciado fresh from kaserola.
Here's a quick, easy and budget friendly recipe of Egg Sarciado:

You will need:

4 pcs.  chicken eggs
18 pcs. quail eggs
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 pc. medium size onion, chopped
1 pouch (200 g) Del Monte Original Style Tomato Sauce with MMK
2 pcs. medium size carrots, sliced
3 pcs. medium size potatoes, sliced
1 tsp cornstarch, dissolved in 1 tbsp. water

How to Cook:

1. Boil water, add 3 pieces chicken eggs and quial eggs. Boil for 8 minutes or until hard cooked. Slice each chicken eggs into two lengthwise. Beat remaining egg. Set aside.
2. Saute garlic and onion. Add Del Monte Tomato Sauce, 1 cup water, potatoes and carrot. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Cover and simmer over low heat for 10 minutes.
3. Add beaten eggs and cornstarch. Simmer while stirring for 2 minutes. Add boiled eggs. Top with green onion if desired. 

Easy and healthy pa because it's rich with Vitamin B6. The whole recipe is here. I just modify the recipe and I don't include chicken cubes na.

Next time, I'll try other Del Monte Kitchenomics' budget saver meals that are healthy and I'll post them here.

Happy eating!
