|Dinengdeng nga uong ti mais ken uggot/bulong ti marunggay|
Those fond of mushroom as a dinengdeng or as a soup agree that this kind of uong is perfect with leafy greens like paria, marunggay or saluyot. I tried to pair it with marunggay. I gathered the very tender leaves for this uong which I bought rather expensively from a corn farmer's wife who is selling his husband's uong harvest from house to house.
I simply boiled the uong in a little bugguong (not much bugguong so it won't spoil the uong's distinct aroma and flavor) and some onions, simmered it, and just before serving, I added the marunggay, and here's it:
It's so tasty, the broth delicious, sweetish, comforting. As a mushroom soup should be. The marunggay is just as crisp and succulent. It demands lots of steamed rice, though. But what the heck, this is like a once upon a blue moon treat, so, it's s kind of sweet indulgence.
