Early this year, I decided to clear up my diet. No more fast food, sugar, and processed foods for this guy. Staying away from unhealthy food wasn’t actually as difficult as I feared. The satisfaction I used to get from ice cream and instant noodles could actually be easily replaced by fruits, salads, oats, and wheat bread. I wasn’t torturing myself at all because I loved healthy alternatives, not just because of the nutritional benefits, but the natural tastes as well!
If there was one fatty food that I do miss, it’s isaw, especially those from the ihawan sa kanto-kanto (street food stalls). If you’re not aware of isaw, it is one of the famous street foods here in the Philippines beloved by many Filipinos, especially high schoolers, college students, and even working adults. Isaw is chicken intestines skewered, marinated, and grilled on top of burning coals. It tastes best when you buy it out on the streets and you could enjoy it with vinegar or a very special sauce made by the street vendor.
But guess what? I could still enjoy my favorite isaw at home. No need to worry about high cholesterol or going outside during a pandemic looking for street vendors who may or may not be sanitary. And how is that possible? With Vegan Isaw of course!
Read-to-Cook Vegan Isaw packs that you could prepare yourself in the comforts of your own home. This is one of the latest menu items from The Delizioso. You may remember them from a non-sponsored blog post before Let’s Go on a Smoothie Cleanse with The Delizioso Detoxify Smoothies! I love their products so much that here’s another blog post of me just gushing about their healthy food items.
Ready-to-Cook Vegan Isaw by The Delizioso – Try this Easy Recipe at Home!
The Vegan Isaw is made from soy protein and comes in 100g packs, dehydrated. It’s vegan, zero cholesterol and still closely tastes like our favorite street food. You could easily tell the difference between vegan isaw and the real thing. They both are rubbery to chew, but vegan isaw has a bit of a rougher texture and its taste will highly depend on the flavor of your marinade.
You don’t need to worry though because I will be teaching you guys the steps on how to prepare Delizioso’s Vegan Isaw at home:
- The Delizioso’s Ready-to-Cook Vegan Isaw
- Barbeque sticks
- Hot Water
- Soy Sauce
- Soak the dehydrated isaw in hot water for 15-20 mins and then, squeeze. Repeat this step for 2-3 times.
2. Prepare the barbeque marinade. Mix together soy sauce, catsup, sugar, pepper, calamansi, and oil in a bowl.
Note: You can also experiment and try coming up with your own mixture for the marinade. Try adding tomato paste or maybe oyster sauce, or even chili if you’d like!
3. Once isaw has finished soaking. Pour barbeque sauce and let marinate for 2 hours or more.
4. Skewer the isaw on the barbeque sticks.
5. Brush the barbeque sauce on the skewered isaw while grilling. You may use a stove-top griller or it can also be grilled on a pan.
6. Let cook until your vegan isaw sticks turn a darker shade of brown and then serve with your favorite vinegar. Yum!
Order a 100g pack of Ready-to-Cook Vegan Isaw at The Delizioso Facebook Page to try it out yourself! They’re super affordable at only Php. 99.00 a pack. One pack can make up to 35 sticks or more.
I feel like I’m biased because I do like tofu and vegan isaw has become my go-to snack. I don’t even bother putting it on sticks anymore. I just eat it like I would eat fries. I could easily finish a 100g pack in one sitting so I always have to have my own stock of vegan isaw for the week.
If you guys have other healthy alternatives for me to try out, please do let me know in the comments below. I am trying to fix up my diet cause all this consistent workout has to lead somewhere. I mean abs please, am I right? Hahaha. I already know what else to write for you guys. How about a 30-day ab workout challenge ALL or NOTHING? Hahahaha. Maybe then, I’ll finally get somewhere? Let’s get to it then!
