CNY day 1

This is a vegetarian dish that we eat every year during CNY day 1. The main ingredients are chinese cabbage (wong nga pak in cantonese), mushroom, and bean curd sheets. Do you eat a similar vegetarian dish during CNY?

  1. Yes. I used to eat this when I celebrated first day of CNY at my mom's. Nowadays I can only go back on the second day hence I do not get to eat this anymore unless my mom cooks it on ordinary days.

  2. I did see a lot of people on Facebook going vegetarian on Day 1 CNY - I'm not familiar with the practice. I guess that is why there is hardly any vegetarian food shops or stalls here.

  5. Yes, during my mom's time but ever since she passed on, no one cooked this the way she did and so my family and I have not taken this dish for the past two years.

  7. Same like PH, my family does not observe going vegetarian on 1st day of CNY cos my other family members are not vegetarian, also my mom don't cook vegetarian but on normal days I eat vegetarian on the 1st and 15th of the Lunar Month

  10. Vegetarian meals are hard to find in commercial places so it's good to have foods like this available.

  11. I know this dish but we don't just eat it on CNY... Everything is soft so it's actually very suitable for small children and elderly, right? :p
