  • Filipino Chicken Soup (Tinola) Filipino Chicken Soup (Tinola)
    Tinola, a favourite on Filipino dinner tables, is made in many variations. The most traditional vegetables used in this soup are green (unripe) papaya or chayote squash, but other green squashes and melons are used, too. Zucchini makes a fine substitute; just make sure to take out the seeds and soft core. The soup is traditionally finished with herbal leaves, such as those of the native malunggay tree, or with chili leaves, the small tender leaves of hot pepper plants, which are tasty but not hot; watercress lends a similar flavour. Use a free-range chicken; if you buy the poultry at an Asian market, you get the head and feet, too, which add lots of extra flavour to the broth.

  • Grilled Fish and Vegetable Soup (Diningding) Grilled Fish and Vegetable Soup (Diningding)
    Diningding (pronounced with short “i”s as in “thing”) is an Ilocano specialty from northern Philippines, where vegetables and fish play the largest role in cuisine. During the wet season, squash blossoms and tender squash leaves are often added to the soup. Adding a birch tree flower is also common. Jute leaves, okra and other mucilaginous greens are other options, as are all kinds of cultivated and wild mushrooms, as well as legumes, including lima beans, wing or asparagus beans, and long beans. Orange-fleshed squashes and orange, purple and white sweet potatoes are all used in diningding, as well as green squashes, such as loofah, bitter melon, hairy melon, snake gourd and marrow. The entire vegetable world is available for adding to this tasty broth, which is simply topped with a piece of cooked fish or shrimp. It's a healthy and inventive dish with endless possibilities. Use this recipe as a guideline and vary the vegetables according to availability and freshness. In Canada, black cod (sablefish), salmon or halibut are especially good for diningding, but freshwater fish, such as pickerel or whitefish, also makes a tasty dish.

  • Pork Sinigang with Rhubarb Pork Sinigang with Rhubarb
    Sinigang (probably the most popular of all Filipino soups) is a sour broth with a variety of vegetables. Fish, seafood, meat and poultry can all be made into sinigang, which is soured by a variety of fruits: green or ripe tamarind; lime, lemon or kalamansi, the native citrus fruit; sour guava; and, especially for chicken or pork sinigang, bilimbi (kamias in Filipino), a small, tart relative of the star fruit (or carambola) that tastes remarkably like rhubarb, which we have used here.

  • Shrimp Sinigang Shrimp Sinigang
    This soup is soured with tamarind, the pulp of long pods that grow on huge tropical tamarind trees. You can buy tamarind concentrate in jars, or tamarind pulp packed in chunks, in the Asian or Latin American section of large grocery stores, or in Filipino, Chinese or Indian shops. If using tamarind pulp, to make the equivalent of 1 tbsp (15 mL) tamarind concentrate, mix 2 tbsp (25 mL) seedless pulp or 3 tbsp (45 mL) seed-in pulp with 1/4 cup (50 mL) boiling water and strain, discarding solids. You can also use lime juice to sour the soup if tamarind is unavailable. The degree of tartness in Filipino sinigang broths varies quite a bit according to taste; feel free to add a bit more tamarind or lime juice if you wish.

  • Beef Lugaw Beef Lugaw
    Lugaw (pronounced “loo-gow”) is soup to which rice is added to make a porridge-like consistency. In the Philippines, it is often made with beef or beef and tripe; with pork stock, stomach and intestines; or with chicken and various vegetables. Beef lugaw is generally unadorned with vegetables, so serve a simple salad on the side. You will need a big pot to make the stock.
