Happy New Year! Today is the first day of the Lunar New Year and, like last year, yesterday I had home-cooked reunion lunch and dinner, so here's what I ate.
The name for this dish would be "vegetarian sweet and sour tofu package". The tofu package is actually many pieces of tofu skin together. This dish is also a little hot.
This is known as "vegetarian feet and mushroom". Luckily it resembles nothing like a chicken feet. Besides the shiitake mushrooms, gluten pieces are also used.
This is an all-veggie stir-fry. With broccoli as the main vegetable. The yellow pieces in the picture are just a couple of ginger slices.
This is a dish of a variety of mock meats. At the top left (going clockwise): fried dumplings - my favourite; vegetarian prawn; vegetarian la chang (smoked sausage), and vegetarian chicken. In the centre it's mock char siew (barbecued pork) . This mock char siew was very good compared to many of the other mock char siew, has a strong sweet flavour to it.
This is known as "the soup of 7-coloured balls", vegetables + 7-coloured balls. Something we will have almost every year.
