Vegetarian white Mee Hoon (Rice Vermicelli)

Vegetarian white Mee Hoon(Rice Vermicelli)


After a heavy dinner (eating few types of red meats) at my husband's friend house yesterday night, today I just like to cook something that plain and contain a lot of vegetable for lunch.


















This time I did not add dark soy sauce (Hokkien dish usually like to add e.g Hokkian fried mee hoon) to this vegetarian mee hoon as I want it simple and all vegetables can be visible.

I also learnt a method to have elastic (QQ effect) of mee hoon from a Chinese TV cooking show. Blanch mee hoon in hot boiling water till turn white, set aside for several minuts.

2. Heat oil in a wok, sauté mushroom,tofu puff and carrot for 1min.
3. Add in celery and bean sprout, mix well.
4. Pour in water, add in seasonings, cook for another 1min but still remain some water.
5. Turn off the heat, add in mee hoon, gently stir and mix well with the vegetables.
6. Turn on low heat, add in cucumber, cover and cook for another 1mins.
7. Turn off the heat, stir well and serve.

My daugher and I enjoyed this mee hoon a lot especially every bite of crunchy cucumber but not sure my little son Desmond will like this or not since he doesn't fancy veggie!! But I guess he doesn't mind to have this meehoon since he is hungry when returned from school at around 3pm, hehehe...

Sometimes I do not add in the dark sauce too.
It somehow gives me the feeling that it's healthier that way. Haha!

This is a real comfort food...!Easy to make and totally delicious... I don't normally use celery and cucumber, but they sound like doo additions to the vermicelli!

tigerfish said...

Hey Sonia, what a coincidence indeed :) I like your vegetarian version too. Usually I just use cabbage, carrot, shallots, garlic for my vegetarian version. Yours has so much more ingredients. Yummy!

Thanks for the tip for blanching the mee hoon. Like vegetarian food, once in a while.

I am sure Mum will enjoy this Mee hoon. She eats veg more than meat. I think I will enjoy this too when I don't want any meat with my noodles.
