When you’re an unrestrained, 8-year old kid faced with a choice of Clover Chips, Ice Cream, Chicken Joy, and a plate of Steamed Pechay, it isn’t hard to guess which dish is gonna be left untouched.
Veggies are kinda boring; and no matter how much grown-ups (Hi, Mum) insist on how healthy and nutritious and blahdiblah they are, it seldom works. Even when a reward is at stake, kids will always find a way to get rid of them—and fast.
Let’s not forget those childish schemes that you’d secretly do—feed chunks of carrots to the dogs, bribe siblings to eat your share of the bitter gourd, or go the extra mile to “accidentally” push your plate off the table?
Tsk tsk, shame on you.
Now that we’ve grown up (but are still a little whack-o), we came up with 3 simple steps on how to dispose of your veggies in a flash without breaking yo momma’s heart.
In this case, we used Laing, a well-loved Bicolano dish. Not surprisingly, this simple combination of gabi leaves simmered in coconut milk makes some damn good pizza topping that can give fried food a run for its money.
One day, when you become a parent, you’ll regret your blatant refusal to eat your daily vegetables as a destructive little monster because your kid will do the same to you. Enter Laing Pizza.
