“Astig” is slang for “Badass” in Tagalog (a Filipino dialect).

It’s a wordplay popularized in the Philippines in the 70s, when then-young generation would flip the words to create their own language (“ermats” as in mother, “erpats” father, etc). “Astig” is slang for “Tig-as”, literally “tough” or “hard”, and is still widely coined by Filipinos to describe something gutsy.

TJ & RG look at veganism as being “Astig”, and not as a weak approach to eating. Their blog, AstigVegan, looks to bravely break the stereotype that Filipino food cannot be vegan, healthy, and delicious all at the same time.

Video Recipe: Vegan Filipino Menudo

Video Recipe: Vegan Filipino Menudo

I’ve featured few versions of vegan Filipino Menudorecipes on this this blog-and I’m going to add yet another version that I hope you could try. This time, I’m featuring two ingredients that would create the pork flavor and texture without the pork. No, it’s not just adding a fake pork product in the mix. You could, by all means. But I’m a strong advocate of whole foods especially in cooking.…

5 Ways to Cook and Enjoy Collard Greens

A COLLARD GREENS FEAST
collard greens 4 ways copy

Personally, I wasn’t a big fan of collard greens because I thought it was too bitter. It wasn’t until I’ve tried my friend’s collard greens dish at a recent potluck that I realized it’s all about how you prepare it. Lucky me, another friend at the potluck gave me fresh collard greens as a gift (the potluck theme was Southern comfort food so collard greens was high on the…
