Chow Mien (Stir Fried Chinese Yellow Noodle 炒面) for Toddler

“Get a child to get oyster mushrooms in this simple vegetarian Chow Mien? How about having it better by adding the super food, Quinoa, as well as liquid aminos, into his meals?”

My son loves the Chinese yellow noodle (Chinese alkaline noodle), usually being prepared in soup as fish balls noodle soup selling at most of the hawker centers, food courts and coffee shops in Singapore and other parts of Asia.

This thin yellow noodle would also commonly be cooked in fried noodle (Chinese Chow Mien) or the Mee Goreng (Indian fried noodle) style which easily found selling outside. Having that said, these fried noodles selling at the stores are usually over seasoned or spicy.

Mushrooms & Pea Sprouts Stir-Fry

“It’s just the abalone sauce you need in your stir fry!”

In order to fully appreciate the freshest taste and natural sweetness Of the fresh pea sprouts as well as the highly nutritious mushrooms, minimal use of condiment to taste is more than just required. I needed only the abalone sauce in my recipe.

If you are a vegetarian, use the mushroom sauce. Otherwise, the Abalone sauce is the best to go with this stir fry! That’s because the golden spring mushroom (金源菇) used in this recipe yields a tinge of ‘seafood’ taste after cooked. Hence, adding abalone sauce was sure to good in enhancing the flavor of this seafood-tasted mushroom in the dish.

Vegetarian Dish – Stir Fried 2 Mushrooms

“Sometimes, just cook and eat a simple, quick and easy vegetable dish is great.”

Did I tell you that I was on strict vegetarian diet for a period? It was on religious purpose. Hence, I eat pure vegetarian meals, without garlic, onion and spring onion, this time.

This was a dish I liked during these days. Easy and pure. Yes, unlike my previous Assorted Asian mushroom recipe, I did not cook this with garlic and ginger. Also, used only 2 kinds of mushrooms, this time.

The sauce in this dish goes perfectly well with steamed white rice.

Vegetarian Burger Patty with Pineapple Teriyaki Sauce

“It’s easier to make this vegetarian burger meal than you think it would be. It’s yummy and healthy.”

Seriously. This is the best way to ‘trick’ one that does not eat beans, carrot, celery, and mushrooms. For one who does not like oats, or has to take oats for his/ her purpose, yet would wish to explore a new way to take the oats other than making the viral-recipe, Overnight Oats, this is a great food for ya.

For the non-initiated, I was referring to our vegetarian Western burger meal with my veggie patty and pineapple teriyaki sauce posted up on my FB wall last evening. Yes, you are right. The veggie patty made consists of all the above mentioned, and more..

Roasted Mushroom Soba

“Oh I miss eating this Japanese Soba which comes with a superior European twist!”

Like many chef experts, including Chef Jason, said, “Good food doesn’t have to be expensive food. Healthy & delicious food is good food.”

This Japanese noodle dish, is suitable for pure vegetarian as garlic wasn’t added to it.

This Japanese noodle dish, is simple and easy to assemble.

However, advance preparation of Dahsi cooking stock for the dish is needed. Long and tedious to do so, for commercial use (if you are cooking in large quantity for restaurant use), but to prepare just for the home cooking, you only need an hour or so to cook up the stock!

“Kangkong, in a ‘Hong Kong’ way”

While Sambal Belacan Kangkong is a popular vegetable dish in Singapore and Malaysia, this Kangkong with fermented bean curd is pretty common in Hong Kong.
