What Has Thai Food Got To Offer For Vegetarians?

For excellent reasons, Thai cuisine is one of the most well loved in the world. Although popularly described as a single cuisine, Thai food is really best characterized as a combination of four regional cuisines coming from Northern, Northeastern, Central and Southern Thailand.

A glance at the menus of Thai restaurants in western countries suggests that there is nearly no place for vegetarian food in Thai cuisine. But, this is not the truth. Most Thai dishes consist of rice with vegetables, meat and sauce on top. Meat and fish or sea food are viewed as just one part of a meal and not as the primary ingredient of the meal. Much of the flavour of Thai food comes from the sauces and vegetables, so you can frequently substitute bean curd or other ingredients that you do eat for the specified meat.

Below, you will find a vegetarian meal from Central Thailand.

2 sweet potatoes
2 carrots
2 onions
3 cakes of tofu (bean curd)
250 grams of ricestraw mushrooms

1 tbsp of light soy sauce
1 tbsp of dark soy sauce
3 cups of vegetable stock
2 tbsp of arrowroot starch

Wash and cut the tomatoes into pieces and then fry them in the oil.
Cut the carrots into 1-inch pieces and the onions into quarters.
Wash the mushrooms and cut them into halves.
Cut the tofu into flat pieces, about 1/2-inch thick.
Marinate the tofu in dark soy sauce for about 20 minutes.
Fry the marinated tofu until it’s brown and firm.
Add the vegetables, soy sauce, salt and pepper.
