About Chinese Vegetarians

According to legend, in China the practice of foregoing meat dates back to ancient times. This means the Chinese have had centuries to perfect flavorful combinations found in vegetarian dishes, from sweet and sour to hot and spicy.

The mainstays of Chinese cuisine - noodles, rice, tofu, seasonings such as ginger and garlic and Chinese vegetables - are all present in vegetarian cooking. However, a steady diet of bok choy and steamed rice can soon lose its appeal!
