This healthy recipe is high in vitamin A that supports normal growth. It is also high in iron that aids in the formation of red blood cells that carry oxygen all over the body, and calcium for stronger bones and teeth.
For a crispier sitaw and pechay, blanch in boiling water just until it turns bright green, then drop in cold water and drain. Add just before serving.
