Living as a vegetarian (or vegan for that matter) in any Asian city can be a little tricky. Most hawker fares or street side finds often use animal fats like pork lard or infuse their vegetables with chicken or pork stock. The fully vegetarian options at restaurants or hawker centers are not diverse at best and sometimes plain miserable when you end up with just a plate of rice and pickles. That’s not saying that fantastic vegetarian food is impossible to find – just turn to your home base aka kitchen and whip up these amazing meatless dishes that combine the best of Asian flavors with wholesome vegetables for some instant gratification. Even carnivores will be converted with these tasty options!
