A Hearty Duo on a Rainy Day: Fried Danggit and Tuna-Veggie Scrambled Egg

"Listen to the rhythm of the falling rain...," goes the lyrics of the song played on air on our way to church today (sssshhhh.... this is a late post). Sounds familiar? The DJ must have played the song popularized by the Cascades as the rain literally been pouring on and off for several days now. The weather has been so unpredictable after tropical depressions one by one visited our country.

On such a weather like this, I'm sure all my fellow Filipinos all around the globe who are fond of dried danggit (rabbit fish) dipped in vinegar wouldn't be able to resist having this on their breakfast table.

Served with Tuna-Veggie Scrambled Egg, the two made a perfect duo!

There was really nothing special about the scrambled egg except that I mixed some veggies (before they get spoiled in the veggie bin) with the canned tuna.   

Tuna-Veggie Scrambled Egg
1 clove garlic, minced and diced
1 medium onion, diced
1 small tomato, sliced
1 can Century Tuna flakes in oil
2 medium eggs, slightly beaten
1/4 cup milk
1/2 small carrot, sliced
1/3 green bell pepper, cut into strips
pinch of salt and ground pepper 
1 tbsp leeks

  1. Using the oil from the canned tuna, saute garlic, onion and tomato. 
  2. Add tuna flakes. Simmer for 1 minute.
  3. Add eggs and milk. Simmer for 2 minutes.
  4. Add carrots and bell pepper. Season with salt and pepper. Scramble the mixture in pan.
  5. Add leeks and serve hot.
Oh, I almost forgot to mention the brewed coffee, without which, my hubby wouldn't have enjoyed his hearty breakfast meal!

"...Oh, listen to the falling rain
Pitter-patter, pitter-patter
Oh, listen, listen to the falling rain
Pitter-patter, pitter-patter..."

    2. Welcome to Garden Chef's Needle and Pen, Zoe! See you around... including FB!? :)

  3. HELLO!!!! I hope were safe in that storm! I know communications are dead, but I hope... like others that your family is ok.

    1. Thank you, Hindustanka, that's very kind of you! Yes, my family is fine. My place was not directly affected by the supertyphoon. Relief operations are now being arranged by the government to the devastated areas. Your concern is so touching.

    2. Oh, many countries also gave donations to the victims.

  4. Hi Eve - just checking on you and your family and relieved to hear you are ok. I am so sorry for the devastation and sadness so many are experiencing.

    1. Hi Astri, so sweet of you, thank you! The relief operations on the devastated areas hit by the super typhoon are still going on. Such a real havoc caused in the lives of so many people. Efforts to rehabilitate those affected are being facilitated by the government in coordination with private agencies. It's so touching to see how our own healthcare workers join efforts with foreign medical teams coming from all over the world. Such love and kindness in action!!!!
