This misua patola with sardines recipe is classic recipe way back our childhood days. Specially on rainy days.

Simple and favorite Filipino soup that our Nanay or Lola will cook everytime there’s a typhoon (malakas na bagyo). They couldn’t go to the market so they prepare this soup that doesn’t require a lot of ingredients.



1 medium Patola, peeled and sliced ½ inch size
1 small can sardines (in tomato sauce)
2 ounces misua (thin flour noodles)
2 tablespoons fish sauce
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 small onion, minced
2 cups water
1 tablespoon toasted garlic
1 teaspoon scallion, chopped
2 tablespoons cooking oil
2-3 hard boiled eggs, boiled 10mins & peeled


Heat a cooking pot and add some oil.

When the oil is hot enough, sauté garlic and onions. Add the sardines including the sauce and cook for 2 minutes over medium to low heat.

Season with patis (fish sauce) and ground black pepper then stir. Add water, patola slices and continue to boil until patola is cooked and it turns bright green.

Add the misua and cook for 2 minutes over medium heat. (It will take only about 2 minutes or even less to cook misua otherwise it will taste bitter).

Turn-off the heat and transfer to a serving bowl with boiled eggs on top. You can also slice it.

Garnish with toasted garlic and chopped scallions on too. Yummy!

Serve hot and enjoy!
