Lathalain: Masarap at masustansiyang lutuing butong-gulay

Ni Marilou R. Galang

Mahilig ba kayong kumain ng munggo?

Ang munggo ay isa lamang sa mga tinatawag na tuyong butong-gulay.

Ang iba pang halimbawa ng butong-gulay ay garbanzos, patani, paayap, kadyos, abitsuwelas, at bataw.

Ang mga ito ay karaniwang mabibili sa palengke, supermarket, sari-sari store o maaari ding itanim sa paligid-bahay.

Maaaring gawing pamalit sa karne, isda o manok ang butong-gulay dahil ito ay mura, masustansiya at sagana sa protina. Bukod sa protina na tagapag-buo ng katawan, ito ay mayaman din sa yero o iron, kalsyum, posporus at bitamina B.

Iluto at ihain ang butong-gulay bilang pang-ulam, pang-himagas, pang-miryenda at pagkain ng bata.

Ang mga sumusunod ay ilan sa mga lutuing may sangkap na butong-gulay:

Patties (Butong-gulay)

2 tasanag linagang butong-gulay, linigis

1 itlog, binati

1 kutsarang asin

tinapay na tostado (biskotso), dinikdik nang pino

2 kutsarang mantika

Ihalo ang butong-gulay sa itlog at lagyan ng asin upang magkalasa. Bilugin ng palapad (8 maliliit o 4 na malalaking patties) at ipagulong ang bawa’t isa sa dinikdik na tostadong tinapay. Lutuin hanggang maging brown ang magkabilang bahagi sa mainit na minantikaang kawali. Walong (8) dulot.

Ginataang Butong Paayap

1 kutsarang mantika                                    6 tasang tuyong paayap, linaga

1 kutsaritang bawang, pinitpit                      2 tasang gata ng niyog

¼ sibuyas, hiniwa                                        asin at paminta, pampalasa

1 tasang kamatis, hiniwa                             2 tasang talbos ng kamote

¼ tasang baboy o hinimay na isda

Igisa ang bawang, sibuyas at kamatis. Idagdag ang baboy o hinimay na isda at pakuluan ang paayap. Idagdag ang gata ng niyog na may asin at paminta. Pakuluin at idagdag ang talbos ng kamote. Takpan at iluto ng 2 minuto. Ihain ng mainit.

Toge-Munggo Delight

1 tasang munggo, linaga at minasa

3 tasang toge

1 tasang mantika

1 tasang asukal

Ihalo ang minasang munggo sa toge. Sa bawa’t kutsara ng minasang munggo at toge, gumawa ng patties at iprito sa mainit na mantika hanggang maging brown. Ipagulong sa asukal. Ihain.

Ni Marilou R. Galang

Ngayong panahon na tumataas ang presyo ng halos lahat ng bilihin, kasama na dito ang pagkain, hindi nakapagtataka kung nanaisin ng bawa’t mamimili na makamtan ang higit na pakinabang sa perang kanilang kinikita.

Sa inyong mga maybahay na sa kasama sa arawang gawain ang pamimili ng pagkain, narito ang ilang gabay para magtamo ng higit na pakinabang sa inyong salapi:

* Ilista ang lahat ng kailangang bilhin bago magtungo sa pamilihan upang maiwasan   ang pagbili ng mga bagay na hindi kailangan.

* Gamitin ang “Gabay ng Wastong Pagkain” o basic food groups araw-araw. Pumili sa bawa’t pangkat ng mga pagkaing mura at napapanahon.

                        ** Ang tinuyong isda o butong-gulay ay maaaring pamalit sa karne.

                        ** Sa mga madahon at dilaw na gulay ay makakakuha ng higit na

                          pro-vitamin A.

                        ** Ang maliliit na isda tulad ng tagunton, alamang at dilis, ay mura

                          nguni’t nagtataglay ng protina na kauri ng matatagpuan sa

                          malalaking isda.

                        ** Makapagtitipid kayo sa pamamagitan ng paghain ng one-dish

                          meals tulad ng sinigang, linaga, tinola at ginisang munggo.

            * Paghambingin ang uri, bilang at halaga ng mga bilihin sa mga tindahan

              bago mamili.

            * Alamin ang mga katangian ng mga sariwang pagkain upang makatiyak
