    Hello, I’m looking for some really authentic but vegetarian chinese dishes. Can you suggest some and some recipes as well. What kind of ingredients should I use, for example tian mian jiang?

    many thanks ,

    I love chinese food! 🙂

    • Central Oriental Supermarkets February 20, 2013 at 3:58 pm #


      One of our favourite vegetarian dishes is Braised Aubergine. Here’s the recipe:

      3 large Aubergines, peeled
      cooking oil
      3 cloves of garlic, minced
      2 bunches spring onions, chopped
      1 tblsp dark soy
      3 tblsp water
      3 inches ginger, sliced thin

      Slice up the aubergine into 1-cm thick slices, and score on each side about 1cm deep.
      Combine in a bowl, the soy, ginger, and garlic.
      Heat the oil in a wok and fry the aubergine slices on each side, on a low heat, for 25 mins until soft.
      Add the sauce, sprinkle the spring onions and water and simmer for a few mins. Add a dash of salt, and serve with some steamed rice or noodles.

      Some other Chinese vegetarian dishes to check out are:

      Braised Tofu
      Sweet and sour fried Tofu
      Soy sauce Eggs
      Vegetable fried noodles
      Choi Sum in Oyster Sauce

    • Central Oriental Supermarkets February 27, 2013 at 4:43 pm #


      We have a recipe for dumplings which you can find here.
      Instead of using Pork, just use a mixture of shredded Chinese Cabbage, chopped Chives, shredded Carrots, and Shit-take Mushrooms or Tofu sliced up into small pieces.

      Have fun!
