Lusog Notes

This dish is a source of protein and niacin. Protein helps build and repair body tissues and is essential for growth while niacin helps improve circulation and suppresses inflammation.

Chef's Tip

Sauté onions before the garlic. Garlic burns faster and will have a bitter taste when sautéed before the onions.
