Copycat Kanin Club’s Vegetarian Delight

For many months now, I am in continuous search for those lesser known Filipino dishes and in line with that search I am also reading the menus of popular Filipino restaurants just to double check if I had missed some dishes that I haven’t posted yet. After that thorough exercise I discovered Kanin Club, while I haven’t tried their dishes yet, I try to recreate them basing on the description on the menu as well as the reviews I read about this place, hence we already had posted dishes like their Crispy Dinuguan, Sinigang na Sinangag and KC Turon. They all sounded really exciting as they are a fusion on different Filipino dishes, what’s even better is that even I haven’t tried the real thing when I made them at home it was a success, unbelievably phenomenal.


Today we will again make something from their menu called Kanin Club’s Vegetarian Delight, on their menu it was described as “banana blossoms, 3 kinds of mushrooms, and tofu, sautéed in vegetarian oyster sauce. It might just convince you to turn vegetarian.” It sounded similar to me because there is a nearly similar dish called Buddha’s delight and that nearly made me vegetarian, for a vegetable dish it was so tasty.

To help recreate this I also looked at the photos online to see how the end product look like. I was quite surprised at it was soupy, with those information in mind I am now confident I can recreate this at home and hopefully those of you who had tried the real thing try this as well so I know how it compares

    A meatless recipe from Raymund! No pork belly? 🙂 Well, it looks like you nailed it because this soup look really, really good. Even being vegetarian it still looks very hearty. Great list of ingredients.
