The second dish that former Cebu City Mayor Tommy Osmeña cooked during our dinner with him was what he called "Archival Veggies". This dish is named after Cebu City North District Councilor Nestor Archival who is a frequent visitor of Mayor Tommy and a vegetarian. In this recipe, the mayor uses okra and sikwa (spounge gourd or patola). This is a very simple recipe that even beginners can make at their own kitchens.

2. When the mushrooms are slightly cooked, you may add the vegetables including the soup. Mix it well and let it simmer

Filipinos love to cook this way for vegetables. The sikwa and okra combination is surprisingly good. It was my first time to eat one dish with the two vegetables as ingredients. Even if the dish has no meat, the mushrooms gave it a good texture. I might just use salt, pepper, and soy sauce to season this dish in the absence of beef bouillion.
