素香糯米饭 Savory Vegetarian Glutinous Rice

Every Monday, 1st and 15th day of every chinese lunar calendar month is the official day whereby my husband and the entire household staff practice full day vegan diet. For me, of course its a daily affair but instead of pushing everyone to follow suit, it is best to slowly introduce vegetarian diet gradually until they are totally weaned from meat products.

Over the years, these fixed days of vegetarian day observation have gradually transformed to more frequent days and the need for more variety of vegetarian recipes deepens.

This recipe is adapted from the meat version from one of my newspaper clippings collections.
