My Favorite Dish for a Healthy Lifestyle

My mother is from Pangasinan and she always cooks dishes that are mostly vegetables like Pinakbet, Chopseuy, and others. Also, we live near the market, so we always have fresh vegetables to cook. In this discussion, I would like to present to you my mother’s Chopseuy (which is my all-time favorite). 

Here are the recipe for this healthy dish: 

Chop Suey is a stir-fried vegetable dish that is cooked with meats such as chicken and pork, but my mother uses chicken liver and chicken meat since we have live chicken in our yard. 

  • 3 ounces boneless chicken breast sliced
  • 1 ½ cup cauliflower and broccoli
  • 1 medium carrot sliced 
  • 1 piece bell pepper sliced into squares

  • 1 ½ cups cabbage chopped
  • 1 piece onion sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic crushed

  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch diluted in ½ cup water
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons cooking oil
