Happy Wesak - Vegetarian Meal at Home

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

P1020088

Sour spicy tomyum flavours soaking through the fried pieces of vegetarian fish... add in ladies' fingers and tomatoes for more bite...

P1020091

Braised Tofu with Mushrooms & Sweet Peas... soft tofu, succulent mushrooms and crunchy peas - different textures blending nicely in a soya gravy...

P1020074

Mixed Vegetables Curry... I used cabbage, long beans, aubergines, tomatoes, ladies' fingers and my all-time favourite - beancurd sheets...

P1020127

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...

P1020078

Fried Vegetarian Goose ... this is LL's favourite.

P1020118

Ahh... of course we must have some carbs, too... a simple Fried Meehoon will do!

P1020071

Nothing beats a home-cooked meal, really.

Enjoy the long weekend ahead!
