Sinigang na Bangus Belly with Veggies for a Rainy Lunch

Sinigang is a popular Filipino dish. It comes with different varieties such as sinigang na baboy (pork sinigang), sinigang na baka (beef sinigang), sinigang na hipon (shrimp sinigang), sinigang na salmon, sinigang na liempo, and the sinigang na bangus (milkfish sinigang). Oh yes, sinigang is also a perfect main dish for a rainy weather or cold weather! 

And just this rainy first day of July, we had our yummy sinigang lunch. And this is no other than the sinigang na bangus belly full of vegetables! 

Served hot to us in the Filipino restaurant that we had eaten, here is our milkfish sinigang for our rainy lunch:

This sinigang na bangus belly is another special soup meal. As you can see, it is full of vegetable toppings!

The vegetables present in this milkfish sinigang are okra, sitaw, labanos, gabi, and kangkong in addition to tomatoes and onion.  And to make its soup sour, a sampaloc is used making it more flavorful!  

Taking about the lead ingredients of this sinigang which is the milkfish or bangus, the bangus belly used here is boneless! Yeah, this is a boneless bangus belly. That's why you will enjoy eating it all you want without worrying that you will get stung by fish!

And did you know that this sinigang na bangus is a healthy meal? Yes, the milkfish or the bangus contains omega-3 fatty acids, which are good for the heart, growth and development and brain function. Great! And of course, the vegetables like okra, kangkong, kamatis, and sitaw in this sinigang are good sources of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients needed by our body!

A hot cup or scope of rice is also a perfect pair for this hot sour soup. Can you guess how many cups or plates of rice do I took for this sinigang?

Meanwhile, fruit juices like orange, guava, mango, or watermelon are the best pair for this meal as your drinks or beverages. But then, a cold icy water is already enough for your drinks!

What is your favorite sinigang?  Do you also love the sinigang bangus belly just what we do? :)
