Morena Mom Cooks: Sautéed Broccoli Paired with Fried Tuna

Morena Mom Cooks: Sautéed Broccoli Paired with Fried Tuna

I am a mom with no helper. I juggle everything inside our house except for the laundry as I am also a preggo momma. Overtime I’ve learn the art of multi-tasking (as most moms are, all even) household chores.

That being said, cooking is a different thing. I have to be efficient in doing it. I have to think of EASY meals I should cook for my two children without compromising the taste yet it should still be healthy.

On my list of menu for the week, one of the meals I cooked for them is this Sautéed Broccoli Paired with Fried Tuna. Why did I say that this is a healthy dish for my Eli and Ella? Broccoli and Tuna were good sources of protein, iron, magnesium, carbs, fiber, minerals and potassium. In terms of vitamins, there is a wealth of vitamin B12 and niacin, as well as a good amount of vitamin B6 and riboflavin. My daughter is under a weight gain plan, if I may mention. That’s why I am very intentional of what I feed her (them) these days.

I cooked this for less than 15 minutes maybe while I was also washing the dishes.



2 slices of tuna (for frying)

Small to medium size broccoli

Chopped onion

1 tbs Garlic

½ tsp salt (both for tuna and sautéed broccoli)

¼ tbs ground pepper

¼ tbs roughly cracked black pepper

Cooking oil

¼ tbs AJI-GINISA® Flavor Seasoning Mix


How to cook?

-Season the fish with salt and pepper

-Fry until cooked, drain the cooking oil used

-Set aside

I’m steaming the broccoli while frying the tuna.

-Steam the broccoli for 5 minutes

-When done, put 1 teaspoon cooking oil on the pan just enough for sautéing the onions and garlic while the tuna is on the other side of the pan

-Put the steamed broccoli

-Sautee everything SLOWLY for a minute or 2 after putting 1/2 tsp AJI-GINISA® Flavor Seasoning Mix to prevent the tuna chunks from breaking apart


-Plate and serve


I opted to steaming the broccoli (first) to save on minutes sautéing it on the pan with the tendency to overcook it or under-cook it. Plus, I learned that steaming is healthier than longer time of sautéing. I just sautéed for a minute or two to mix everything effectively and at least cook the seasoning.

While the Kuya Eli is still sleeping, little Ella is munching on this meal prepared by mommy:


I love how AJI-GINISA® Flavor Seasoning Mix gave flavor to my dishes just enough for my little family to savor every meal’s taste.


And here’s a news from Ajinomoto Philippines Corporation:


On its 60th year, Ajinomoto Philippines Corporation (APC) unveiled two big developments: the star-studded Aji Seasonings Series Campaign and the new Ajinomoto Group Global Brand Logo (AGB) – at the #AjinomotoBigDay event last May 25, 2018 at Oasis Manila.


The Aji Seasonings Series

The campaign brings together four Ajinomoto seasoning brands – AJI-NO-MOTO® Umami Seasoning, AJI-GINISA®, AJI-PORKSAVOR®, and AJI-CHICKENSAVOR® – and three of the country’s biggest stars to provide Filipino families with an Ajinomoto seasoning for whatever kind of deliciousness they need whether in fried, saucy, or soupy dishes.

New AJI-PORKSAVOR® and AJI-CHICKENSAVOR® endorser Anne Curtis and AJI-GINISA® ambassador Marian Rivera made a special joint appearance at the #AjinomotoBigDay to share with media guests their own cooking journeys and encourage Filipinos to #AlwaysChooseAjiSeasonings.

Newlywed Anne said, “Like so many others, I’m a beginner in the kitchen and cooking is such a fun challenge to take on.” Even better, she gets to share her new discoveries with her food-loving family and friends.


Devoted wife and mom Marian, on the other hand, has tried her hand on a variety of ginisa-related recipes “mula simpleng ginisang gulay hanggang sa mga recipes na mas bongga at adventurous” as seen on her Instagram food profile, @LutoNiYan.

AJI-NO-MOTO® Umami Seasoning endorser Liza Soberano, through a special video message, reached out to fellow young cooks. “For all of you who like to cook for their family like me, it’s helpful to know that there are Ajinomoto Seasonings that can aid you to make each and every meal delicious and enjoyable for your loved ones.”

Check out the new The Aji Seasonings Series TV commercials starring Marian and Anne on CookmunitybyAjinomotoPH. Watch out for the release of Liza’s this June 2018.
