Cooking Left-over Pansit

Cooking left-over pansit takes a bit of stir-frying and lots of vegetables. Easy!

Ask me 10 years ago if I dare care cooking left-over pansit (or pancit) at home. I would have retorted a straight “NO!” right away. Now however, it makes all the sense to me to salvage the left-over food from last night’s dinner, especially when I have all the simple ingredients in my kitchen anyway.

Cooking Left-over Pansit
Cooking left-over pansit.. to do or not to do?...

Pansit, once more is a stir-fried noodle dish with mixed vegetables. It's a Filipino style recipe which we inherited from the Chinese. For me, cooking pansit is similar to cooking chopsuey. Cooking left-over pansit, is therefore just as simple.

In cooking left-over pansit, here is what we need:
- Garlic, crushed
- Chicken liver or chicken strips
- Snap beans, cut in strips
- Carrots, cut in strip
- Cabbages, cut
- Hot water
- Red or green bell peppers, cut in strips
- Left-over pansit
- Kinchay or Chinese celery
- Fish sauce
- Ground or powders black pepper

Cooking left-over pansit doesn’t dictate many ingredients. We are simply adding up what’s already in the pansit. These are my basic pansit ingredients so that’s what I suggest to use. On the other hand, you may add other usual pansit ingredients like:
- Cauliflower
- Shrimps or pork

Let’s start cooking left-over pansit:
1. Put the pan to high-heat.
2. Sauté the garlic.
3. Add in the chicken liver or the chicken strips in the pan. Stir until well-cooked.
(In cooking left-over pansit, adding any preferred protein you want, makes the dish more flavorful; as if they are a new dish entirely.)

4. Add in the snap beans and carrots.
5. When the vegetables slightly change in their more vibrant colors, put hot water in the pan.
6. Add in the cabbage and bell pepper; cover and wait for the soup to boil.
7. Season this mixture with fish sauce and pepper.
8. Add in the left-over pansit. Mix well.
9. Add the Chinese celery.
10. Turn off the stove and allow the dish to simmer.

When cooking left-over pansit or a fresh batch even, it’s nice to prepare a stand-alone condiment like soy sauce and lime for instance to make the dish more flavorful.
