Vegetable Adobo

The first time I ate Okra was when I was a kid and my mother cooked it with some leafy vegetables, I ate only one slice and I almost swore not to eat it again. But then one time, my father suggested to cook it as in adobo style, so my mother made an okra adobo, I was hesitant to try it but my father insisted that it taste very different from the one I ate before, I was convinced, I tried it and wow, it was yummy! Now, I tried adding zucchini, string beans and carrots to add more flavors since my hubby likes to eat mixed vegetables in one dish.


15 pcs. medium okra, cut into halves diagonally
1 zucchini, sliced
1 carrot, slice diagonally
1 cup string beans, cut into 2 inches length
1 onion, sliced
3 cloves garlic, crushed
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 tsp. vinegar
1 tbsp. oyster sauce
1 chicken cube bouillon (optional)
1 tsp. peppercorns
1 bay leaf
1/2 tsp. sugar
1/3 cup broth
salt and pepper to taste
3 tbsp. olive oil

1. Heat oil in a skillet. Saute garlic until lightly brown, add onions and stir until transparent in color. Stir in the okra,string beans, zucchini,carrots, chicken cube, bay leaf, peppercorns and broth. Bring to a boil.
2. Add soy sauce, vinegar, sugar and mixed vegetables. Cook until the vegetables are done. Stir in the oyster sauce. Turn off heat.
3. Season with salt and pepper if desired.
