Growing up in the Chinese culture, food isn’t just our daily sustenance, it does have a more profound meaning in our lives. It is the token of love. It is about sharing, connection, comfort and compassion. Like love, it is beyond words sometimes. What is food for you?
Mum had serious gout attacks when she visited me last year, which was caused by a buildup of uric acid in the blood. She was told by the doctor to reduce her meat intake. This dish was one of my attempts to show her that a vegetarian diet can be interesting and tasty.
I am struggling to name this dish. If you fancy Chinese flavours, sprinkle a bit of soy source before you serve the dish. Otherwise try some olive oil, parsley and parmesan cheese and the dish could be Italian.
