Ginisang Sayote

Sometimes, household finances can get pretty tight and it’s always nice to find ways to cut food cost without compromising quality. If you are looking for a vegetable dish that’s both delicious and nutritious as well  as budget-friendly, this ginisang sayote definitely fits the bill. Sayote is  one of the cheapest vegetables to start with and by chopping the shrimp, we are able to use less in the dish. Cutting meat and vegetables into bite-sized pieces is a economical trick in food prep as it gives the illusion of “plenty”.

Ginisang sayote pairs well with white rice and fried fish or grilled meat. This quick stir-fry requires the most basic of ingredients and the addition of oyster sauce does wonders to its overall flavor. Try it for dinner tonight and please leave a feedback.
