Super Easy Buddha’s Delight 罗汉斋 Vegetarian Stir Fry Mixed Vegetable Recipe – Luo Han Zhai


Buddha’s delight which is also known as Luo Han Zhai (罗汉斋) in Chinese, is one of the most well-known vegetarian dishes. Buddha’s delight is so well-known that it even has its own wikipedia page!! 🙂 Buddhist vegetarians do not eat garlic, shallots and onions apart from just meat, eggs or sometimes even diary products. Thus vegetarian dishes are usually made flavourful with soy-based products. So even though Roland didn’t add any garlic in this recipe, he still made it really yummy! We hope you will enjoy this Buddha’s Delight dish (Luo Han Zhai) as much as we did.
