Nine Emperor God Festival. The pungent Nam Yee is salty with a slight creamy taste. During this festival, devotees would eat only vegetarian meal for nine days. As a young kid, I would accompany my grandma in observing 9 days of strict vegetarian diet.
Here is my recipe for vegetarian stir fried Romaine lettuce with Nam Yee.
Romaine Lettuce, 4 bunches, cleaned
Nam Yee, 1 pc
Garlic, 3 pcs, chopped finely (Note: Some Nine Emperor Gods devotees don't eat garlic)
Vegetable oil, 1 tablespoon
Heat up wok and put in the vegetable oil. Add in the garlic and stir fry for a short while. Add in the nam yee and break it up using the spatula. Add in the romaine lettuce and fry for a short while only. Pour in a little water. Serve hot with steamed rice.
Note : You don't have to add water because, nam yee is very salty.
