Also with squash, string beans, eggplant, jute leaves, red onion, tomato, chilli and seasoned with anchovy sauce or in Tagalog bagoong. Fried tofu as well. The soup was heavenly good. I love it.

🇵🇭“LASWA“ with FEW SHRIMP (Vegetables with Few Shrimp)

Why few shrimp? Simply because „eating as medicine“ and „in moderation“. Do you believe that eating or nutrition can heal. And lots of vegetables ideal for healthy diet. He/She who suffer from chronic illness and want to do something themselves to make them feel better, the right nutrition offers great opportunities for this. The reason why for me preferably more vegetables than meat. Today‘s prepping is all about „LASWA“ (vegetables) in which I added few Shrimps just to give a little bit flavor of it.
