Tinola Recipes

Tinola is a soup dish composed of a ginger and onion-based broth, alongside your meat of choice—either chicken or fish—and wedges of either papaya or chayote plus malunggay leaves. Though the soup itself may be clear, make no mistake about it; the flavor of this dish is far from bland, radiating the same gingery components that make up a large part of the soup! Tinola is hailed by many as an ultimate comfort food; just a sip of the soup and a portion of the tender meat is enough to make anyone’s day better.
