Happy Wesak to all Buddhist friends!
It’s customary to go vegetarian on Wesak Day. Buddhist temples will be serving vegetarian meals to all visitors on this day. Why, even Gordon Ramsay is cooking some special vegetarian dishes for our Prime Minister in Brickfields today!
Well, I decided to cook some simple vegetarian dishes today, too. The in-laws came over and we had a great lunch today, chatting and taking our time savouring these dishes…
Tomyum Vegetarian Fish
Sour spicy tomyum flavours soaking through the fried pieces of vegetarian fish… add in ladies’ fingers and tomatoes for more bite…
Braised Tofu with Mushrooms & Sweet Peas… soft tofu, succulent mushrooms and crunchy peas – different textures blending nicely in a soya gravy…
Mixed Vegetables Curry… I used cabbage, long beans, aubergines, tomatoes, ladies’ fingers and my all-time favourite – beancurd sheets…
Always have a Sweet Sour dish for the kids! Here I used baked beans, vegetarian fishballs and throw in some straw (enoki) mushrooms… the sweet sour gravy goes well with rice or noodles…
Fried Vegetarian Goose … this is LL’s favourite.
Ahh… of course we must have some carbs, too… a simple Fried Meehoon will do!
Nothing beats a home-cooked meal, really.
Enjoy the long weekend ahead!
