Turning “Longsilog” into Healthy Fare!

image

Hi, everybody, I am off for 3 nights so I’m here again with all of you; let’s talk about ‘Longsilog’. Longsilog is a short term for ‘longanisa’ for sausage, ‘sinangag’ for fried rice and ‘piritong itlog’ for fried egg. With the help of Alton Brown, we will poach organic eggs instead of oil frying, with the help of Pride of Iloilo, we will make skinless sausage but I will revise it by adding huge Granny Smith Apple, shredded via our food processor and add 2 tablespoons of Bob’s Red Mill whole ground flaxseed meal (a good source of omega 3 fatty acids to promote health). Each serving provides 3 grams each of fiber and protein, also offers 2430 milligrams of omega-3s. Anybody who has no bowel regularity will definitely have one by adding 2 tablespoon of flaxseed meal to their smoothies, sauces and bread, yogurt and ice cream. Recipe instruction on Skinless Sausage was already on the previous posting before this.

Let’s poach the eggs first:

1. Put enough water to come 1 inch up the side of a narrow deep 2 quart saucier.

2. Heat the water. Add 1 teaspoon salt and 2 teaspoons of white vinegar and bring to a simmer on medium heat.

3. Meanwhile crack 1 very fresh cold large egg into a small ramekin.

4. Carefully drop the egg. Turn off the heat, cover the pan and set your timer for 5 minutes.

5. Don’t touch the egg.

6. After 5 minutes, lift it out.

7. Remove with a slotted spoon and put on a paper towel to absorb all the water, then remove the wet paper towel and place the egg very carefully on a serving plate where you will assemble your healthier Longsilog.

Instead of the very white fine Jasmine rice, we will use the Seeds of Change Certified Organic Quinoa and Brown Rice with garlic. Simple instruction is at the back of the 8.5 oz. pouch. To cook in a skillet: first gently squeeze the sides of the pouch to break apart the rice and pour contents into a skillet; then add 2 -3 tablespoon of water and heat; finally, stir rice occasionally until heated through. Plate immediately.

How to plate like a pro!…..Imagine a clock: rice, bread and pasta  should be by 11 o’clock, veggies by 2 o’clock and protein by 6 o’clock. This is fun way of learning each day. Wishing you all a happy and stress-free day today. This is Peaches, signing off for now, leaving you another Sarap and Healthy Addition to our Food Recipes!!!
