  1. I love this vegan channel but i find it complicated and most of the ingridients especially in subtituting meat are very rare and hard to find I wish you can make it more simple by using simple ingridients that we can get in the market. Thanks

  2. Thanks for the video, I am just switching to plant based nutrition because of hypertension and diabetes looming over me..I believe this recipe is doable without using oil or added salt as I am discovering really works for me..can’t wait to try it..

  3. I’ll give this a try, like  “going green” environmentally …many chefs, cooks are modifying ol great recipes to eat a lot healthier.  Many changes in the recipe definitely changes the taste.  Someone tried to make me modified pork adobo and they added in all kinds of veggies and reduced the seasoning…it tasted like old soup.   

    Filipino cuisine is not the healthiest but it has a great taste and flavor.  Its all about making it delicious.  Yeah, I try to eat healthier but sometimes let me have the original recipe and I’ll ad an extra 15 minutes to my workout, basketball game or running.  

    Thanks for uploading the video and recipe.
