Back home, one of my favorite filling snacks is "SIOPAO with Red Bean Filling". It is a steamed bread bun normally filled with meat (pork or chicken) as well as vegetables and sweet filling. I can buy Siopao in the Asian Store but, I seldom find the red bean filling. I challenge myself to make a Siopao at home so; I bought this Hamilton Beach steamer. I love this steamer, my super helper!
Steamed Semi-Ripe Plantain is another favorite snacks of mine and because of this steamer, I was able to enjoy eating "nilung-ag nga saging" :-) though, I used the steamer instead of having it cook inside the pan of boiling water. I don't like to see a cracked peeling so; a steamer will do the trick and it was perfectly cooked. Try it!
Here it is. When the plantain was ready, I strip and throw the peeling, and sliced the plantain into bite size. I have a spicy and salted shrimp fry, a perfect dip for my plantain.
Oh, I was thinking of making this now. Let me check if I have plantain in the pantry. Oh my goodness, my hungry tummy is excited! I will see you tomorrow. Feel free to check my other food adventure. Thanks for stopping by.
