Perhaps, this is the time to be more grateful with what we have. The onset of the pandemic led to many people losing their jobs while some even lost their loved ones. Despite this, we come through. Filipino resilience has been one of the reasons why we always push forward. As ones who value special occasions the most, there is no doubt that the upcoming holidays is something we all look forward to. Running tight on budget? No problem! We can always innovate. Instakart, a Davao online grocery and delivery is only a few taps away. For some tipid hacks during the Noche Buena, here are some elevated must try canned good dishes for everybody.
Tuna Sisig. While you can’t drink your favorite alcoholic drinks, you can still recreate your favourite pulutan with canned tuna! With just one can, this recipe will satisfy three people with its spicy and savoury flavours. Not a fan of chili? You can definitely not add any, and it will taste just as good! You just heat one tablespoon of tuna oil in a pan. Fry the tuna until it turns golden brown. Sauté the onions until soft. Add the siling labuyo. Sauté the mixture. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Squeeze calamansi over the mixture. Then, add the soy sauce. Mix well and voila! A healthy sisig for the family is served.
Corned Beef Baked Macaroni Recipe. Everybody loves baked macaroni. This party dish staple is a classic one alongside the spaghetti, hot dogs, and Pinoy-style pork barbecue, but not all baked macs are made the same. For this recipe, you can ditch the ground meat and instead, raid the kitchen cupboards for ingredients for corned beef. You can even substitute some of the tomato sauce with banana ketchup for that sweet, spicy combination that we Filipinos love. To top that, make sure to use quick-melting cheese instead of the gooey and stretchy mozzarella to emphasize that this isn't your usual baked macaroni.
Canned Tuna Burger. Just like sisig can be made from tuna, you can make a burger from tuna as well! This burger is loaded with not just tuna flakes. These tuna burgers are bursting with other flavors, too, courtesy of the ingredients that make up each patty. Plus, these are made small enough so that you don't need burger buns. Grab your favorite pandesal and stuff it in there together with all the toppings you love on your usual burger, and you're ready to take that bite.
Sinigang na Sardinas. Nothing screams “extender” like some tasty sabaw. One can add rice to a sinigang soup, and he or she will instantly be satisfied like no other. And did you know that you can have a nutritious and filling meal using trusty canned goods, too? If you’re out of bangus, shrimp or pork, you can actually opt for sinigang na sardinas — perfect for the rainy days!
