I was never a big adobo fan when I was a kid. It was something I ate when there’s nothing else on the table. So it was quite surprising when I fell in love with adobo flakes at first bite. It took everything nice about adobo and made it even nicer. Who doesn’t like crispy things after all?
So can you just imagine how happy I was to discover ready-to-heat adobo flakes on a big billboard on South Superhighway? I grabbed a pack on my next visit to the super but because it was quickly demolished at home, I wasn’t able to blog about it sooner.
While far from my ideal adobo flakes, I like Mom’s Kitchen Adobo Flakes simply because I can keep it the freezer, ready to cook when a craving hits. (And I can’t believe they don’t have a website. Either that or my google skills suck.)
For this lunch, I fried the Adobo Flakes to a nice crisp, then served over a bed of freshly steamed rice. I then sautÃ©ed some green beans in lemon butter then boiled some tomatoes in water. I love boiled / steamed tomatoes. Lightly salted, boiled tomatoes go well with most fried dishes. Still, I like it best with tuyo (dried fish).
Rice, meat and veggies. It may not be the world’s healthiest meal, but hey, you have to give me credit, there is some sort of attempt at striking a balance. ^_^;;
