10 Oct

I grew up on a solid Southern USA diet, where nearly all the meat was batter fried. Funny how I ended up working in a Chinese restaurant as a first job, and I’ve been hooked ever since on hot sour soup, spring rolls, wontons, pork fried rice, and moo goo gai pan (chicken and mushrooms). Forget those sugar-coated fried biscuits…Those are strictly an American thing. lol

One of my visitors this evening writes about Asian food. OMGosh! I think I am in love – with the food peeps, with the food! It is Taiwanese, which is the Asian food I learned to cook so many yeaers ago, and I stuck with my favorites. 🙂 Healthy soups, plenty of vegetables, and spicy — I love spicy dishes, and I am totally digging into the recipes provided here once my fast is over…or maybe sooner. They sure look delicious! 🙂

Asian Vegan Eats

I had leftover napa cabbage and bean sprout (from Shanghai Style Stir-Fried Rice Cake) in the fridge, and I wanted to make a hot soup to go with the Sichuan Cold Noodle. Taiwanese Vegetable Thick Soup was the result. Traditionally thick soup is made with pork or/and squid wrapped in fish paste. This vegetarian/vegan version is easy… just leave out the meat.

        Yum! Now you had me thinking about the General Tsao’s flavor. You just give me the idea of making a vegan version of a General Tsao’s dish… maybe tofu and or mushroom?! 🙂

        Or both…I like mushrooms in nearly everything and finally found shiitake mushrooms, except they are jarred instead of being fresh.

        Jarred one is perfectly fine. Actually the dried one has more flavor than the fresh one. Most Chinese dishes use the dried shitake mushroom.
