How to make beef melon fried rice

      6

One of my favourite dishes at our local veg-friendly Chinese restaurant is a vegan tom yum fried rice with tons of fresh pineapple, soy ham, tomato, & lemongrass-y goodness. I’ve been procrastinating veganizing it to lớn enjoy at trang chủ but thanks lớn USA Rice, you guys have it sooner than later!

Most of the flavour of this dish comes from the vegan tom yum paste, which is traditionally not vegan. There is usually fish sauce and shrimp paste in it, which delivers a salty, umami flavour with a bit of funk. Khổng lồ veganize it, I used tamarind lớn take advantage of that sweet and sour flavour of tom yum, & dried mushroom to replicate that deep, umami funk.
