It’s the best feeling when you get to cook for other people and they end up loving the food. I had the pleasure and privilege to cook for my auntie and her friend for lunch this entire week for a fee. Suddenly, I felt like a personal chef! Because they’re family, I didn’t charge much-YET (hehe j/k).
My auntie and her friend had asked me once before and I guess they liked the food enough to ask me again. I believe they’re trying to eat healthier. Well, going vegan is definitely one way to do it. Hopefully next time, they’ll go for more than once a day in a week.
They had originally requested for me to start last week, but because I got sick, I was only able to cook for Monday and Tuesday. I resumed this Wednesday and today is the final dish.

In fact, making Pancit Bihon is quick and delicious. All you have to do is stir fry the vegetables, blanch the noodles, and combine the two. I made it extra healthy by adding a non traditional but super nutritious ingredient, Kale. I also made this version slightly to the sweeter side by incorporating hoisin sauce.
Here’s how to make it:
