A typical meal in the Philippines is not complete without a bowl of hot soup. It goes best with rice and whatever viand you have, or it can be eaten by itself as the main dish, for nothing beats a steaming bowl of soup.

This very easy to prepare, affordable and delicious soup is very aromatic  because of the addition of the spicy ginger. In the northern part of the country, tinola refers to a chicken soup preparation with green papayas and chili leaves. They call it Tinolang Manok.
