Tuna Lumpiang Shanghai using Minola Lauric Oil
Last Christmas Eve, my family had a simple Noche Buena. We ate Chicken Afritada, Spaghetti and I cooked Lumpiang Shanghai. But Instead of pork, I have used tuna since I think it is a healthier alternative. This is an easy dish that takes little time to prepare.
I decided to use Minola Lauric Oil to fry it. If you want to eat healthy, then make sure that all the ingredients of your food are healthy (that includes the oil). Minola Lauric Oil as I have mentioned in my previous post has various benefits: It has antibacterial and antimicrobial properties and it also promotes good health and helps build a stronger immune system.
Minola is the leading brand of cooking oil here in the Philippines and every household is familiar with it’s name. But what others don’t know is the benefit of using this oil compared to other kinds of cooking oil. The Lauric acid in Minola when absorbed by the body becomes Monolaurin which is also found in Mother’s Milk. Unlike Virgin Coconut Oils, Minola Coconut Oil is cheaper and is tasteless. Choosing to use Minola Premium Coconut Oil will also make the Copra industry of our country increase its production, which means more jobs for Copra farmers.
Hooray for a healthier alternative!
I also created a Bento Box for this dish and I know your kids will love this idea when they go back to school this January.
