Earlier I cooked Chicken Sotanghon Soup with tons of veggies. This time, I’m cooking the same Chicken Sotanghon Soup with Malunggay and Sayote. It’s the same kind of effort as the earlier chicken sotanghon soup but just different veggies included. The taste? Same too though I prefer this one as the Malunggay leaves gave this soup a pop of color.
The sayote gave the soup a nice texture as well. So this wins the Chicken Sotanghon Soup series!
