Chinese Vegetarian Bak Chang (粽子, Chung, Glutinous rice wrapped in Bamboo Leaves)


My neighbour gave me the above Vegetarian Bak Chang (粽子, Chung, Glutinous rice wrapped in Bamboo Leaves) that Buddhist Tzu Zhi  Association sells for charity. This is the first time I ate vegetarian bak chang. Actually it tastes quite good, minus to oil from pork lard. LOL!

These are the ingredients that are used to make vegetarian bak chang.
Organic unpolished glutinous rice
Vegetarian mock pork meat
Beans
Chestnut
Chinese dried mushroom
Five spice powder
Dark soya sauce
Salt and sugar

All these are wrapped in bamboo leaves and boiled for more than an hour until the glutinous rice softhen. Best eaten when still warm.
