This is one breakfast and dinner dish I prepared recently. This is my own version of a pancit canton recipe which I have cooked and concocted in countless ways based on what ingredients are available at the time of cooking. I used chinese sausage as flavor enhancer since I didn't have anything in the fridge; no chicken, no pork, no seafood.
It turned out okey, according to my partner. He normally eats a hearty breakfast.
For awhile back, during younger days, his breakfast was a cup of black coffee. That's it. Over the years, I convinced him that breakfast was the most important meal of the day. It doesn't matter if you just eat fruits for lunch. But it is a MUST to eat a nutritious breakfast.
My version of pancit canton was complete in terms of balance. Look here:
250 gms pancit canton package
3 pcs chinese sausage, diced
2 cups diced cabbage
1 cup diced carrots
1/4 cup kinchay
1/2 cup onions
1/2 cup green onions for garnish
5 cloves of garlic, crushed
1/2 cup soy sauce
chicken broth (if available) otherwise water is enough
1/8 vegetable oil
1/8 olive oil
salt to taste
fresh milled black pepper
I add olive oil just before I remove the pancit dish from the cooking pan to dilute the not so good cholesterol (chinese sausage) inherent in the dish. Olive oil provides HDL. And to make it perfect, I use lemon instead of kalamansi to dissipate the oily taste and feel on the mouth.
