So, perfect for rainy and cold days. I can totally picture myself eating this dish anytime of the day, because this is one of my favorite.
The inspiration behind this dish was when I saw the Knorr Seasoning mix while I shopping at one of my favorite store. The next thing I know was, I see myself looking for some GABI or Taro roots which is available mostly on Asian store. Taro roots makes the soup more condensed and taste scrumptious but if you can't find one just substitute with potatoes or totally skip it. This recipe is very forgiving or I called it FREE Recipe because you can totally make your own version and add whatever kind of vegetables you want. Are you ready to make some Sinigang with Gabi?? Come one you guys. Join me in my kitchen and lets taste and explore the beauty of cooking delicious food. Yum!!! Check out my super easy recipe below.

NOTES- Adjust the taste according to your preference. Add your favorite choice of meat and have FUN!

Pork- cut into desire pieces
Bokchoy/Petchay- sliced
Knorr Sinigang na may Gabi Mix
