Making Filipino food is to retell a story of my culture — complex, humbling and personal.

Sinigang is a classic Filipino sour soup with a variety of vegetables that are reminiscent of a Filipino farm. It’s the warm hug that withholds its sentimental, cultural significance in times of a harsh Midwest winter.

Prep time: approximately 15 minutes

Cook time: whenever my parents said the sinigang is ready. I used to call to ask my parents when I made it by myself.
