Delightful Filipino Soups and Stews for Thanksgiving

21 November 2019|

Roast chicken or turkey always gets the attention as the centerpiece and focal point of Thanksgiving meals, but truth be told, without a soothing soup or stew, the table feels incomplete. 

It can be daunting, especially when we got little time and Thanksgiving dinner is just around the corner. 

If it makes you feel any better, you’re not alone, which is why at Mama Sita’s Kitchen, we’ve always relied on our soup and stew mixes to make things a little bit easier—Tinola and Sinigang Soup Mixes, Caldereta and Kare-Kare Stew Mixes. 

Most Filipino homes have these in their cupboard, for times like this when we want to prepare something comforting and familiar amidst all the other fancy food preparations. If you’re new to these traditional Filipino stews and soups and would like a step by step guide, check out our Youtube Channel: Mama Sita’s Recipes. Here are the links to some of our favorite stews.

We’ve put all of our favorite soup and stew mixes in a Handaan Pack, with Mama Sita’s Limited Edition What Kids Should Know About Filipino Food by Felice Prudente Sta. Maria.

This book is not yet available in book shops outside the Philippines, so this alone should make you want to get this pack, specially made for the Filipino food-curious like you. 

Cheers from Mama Sita’s Kitchen!
