Lusog Notes

This recipe is high in protein which is important for growth and development and the regulation of enzymes and hormones. It is also rich in vitamin A that helps maintain healthy skin and normal vision and also plays a role in immunity.

Chef's Tip

Tear basil instead of over chopping them to avoid bruising the leaves which will make it turn black. Add the fresh herbs at the end of cooking to keep the taste vibrant instead of drowning it out from prolonged cooking.
