Since spending time in the Philippines and being introduced to Filipino dishes by Tonet and her family, I’ve been trying vegan versions of Filipino foods. I’ve relied on Astig Vegan for recipes and ideas.
In this video RG Enriquez tries to dispel the notion that vegan food has to be expensive and presents 10 dishes that can be made with ingredients that cost less than P100 (about $2.50 Canadian). Some of my favourites are in the list, including laing, ginataang langka, and ginataang kalabasa at sitaw.
During my stay in the Philippines, I’ve talked to some Filipinos who have expressed interest in vegan cooking. The only thing stopping them is the stereotype that vegan food is expensive and inaccessible. So, I have put together a video featuring ten of my recipes that would cost only 100 pesos each. I hope Filipinos from all walks of life in the Philippines would find this list useful in their everyday cooking.10 VEGAN FILIPINO DISHES UNDER P100
