What's in the Fridge...Instant Sinigang!

Checked the fridge, and there is potential. A bag of fresh shrimps, some assorted veggies. I'm thinking Sinigang. A sour, tamarind-based soup usually prepared with pork, beef or fish, but also great with fresh shrimps. 


In a large pot, fill with around 6-8 cups of water, and bring to a boil. Grab four medium sized tomatoes, diced, and throw in the pot. Throw in a medium sized onion, quartered. Empty a pack of Knorr Sinigang sa Sampaloc Mix and stir. Then add the remaining veggies, like okra, labanos (daikon), gabi (taro), kangkong (water cabbage), sitaw (string beans), and eggplant. Throw in two to three whole green chiles for a little heat. 




Then dump the shrimps into the pot and let it boil until the shrimps turn bright orange. Add some salt and pepper to taste.


And enjoy. Another pretty good fridge raid.
