Are you looking for a simple ginisang gulay recipe? Well, check out the ingredients and procedure here.

The kiddie song “Makulay ang Buhay sa Sinabawang Gulay” by Knorr is definitely the most genius way to promote a product. I remember mothers buying their seasoning with their children in the groceries while singing.

My nieces, who are teens today, were also enticed and will even sing and dance whenever the song was being played during the commercial. Of course, they were also encouraged to eat veggies.
