My family always enjoy the vegetarian dishes I cooked for them, especially vegetarian chicken rice.
Vegetarian Chicken Rice is very simple and easy to cook as the ingredients are easily available at stores. The only technique of getting the right taste is the correct amount of Ginger and Lemon grass that are added in for cooking, so that the flavor of either ginger or lemon grass will not over-power one another.
Recipe of Vegetarian Chicken Rice
– White rice : 2 and a 1/2 cups
– Water : 2 and 3/4 cups
– Lemon Grass : 1 stalk (slightly smash it and cut into few sections)
– Ginger : 8 slices

Simple Method :

To enjoy the complete set of vegetarian chicken rice, simply pan fry the vegetarian chicken slices until brown, scald green vegetable. Add in Sesame Oil and Soy Sauce, garnish with cilantro . Serve this dish with Chili Sauce.
Note : The vegetarian chicken slices that I bought are high in fiber, no cholesterol and no preservative as its ingredients are mainly soya bean fiber.
