Sinigang is a Filipino comfort food and very delicious. This can be made with many different kinds of meat with pork or fish being the main choices, but to make it healthier and just as delicious, use tofu in place of meat. This is typically served with a bit of fish sauce (patis) in a bowl on the side to sprinkle on the food as you are eating it, but you can leave this out if you are a strict vegetarian or you can make a vegetarian version of fish sauce.

This is a very filling meal, and very tasty. You can experiment with adding other vegetable as you like. Sinigang is a classic Filipino meal and every family has their own secret ingredients they add while making this dish.
