Hue Vegetarian Dishes

Hue vegetarian food and vegetarian dishes are cooked in the Mahayana Buddhism style. Some are prepared in a regal manner and are regarded as the vegetarian equivalents of delectable non-vegetarian fare.


Many followers and locals, in addition to Buddhist monks and nuns, eat vegetarian food at least twice a month (every first and fifth day of a lunar month). Some Buddhists opt to fast for four days, six days, ten days, or their entire lives. As a result, there is a large range of vegetarian food available in Hue. Hoang Thi Kim Cuc introduced 120 vegetarian recipes separated into 22 courses in her book "Dishes created in Hue style" (Nhung mon an nau loi Hue).


Hue vegetarian food is influenced by the Nguyen dynasty's dining culture, as it was once the capital of Vietnam. Vegetarian dishes were carefully prepared by royal cooks and concubines during the time to ensure that their taste and appearance satisfied the Emperors. As a result, many dishes produced with young jackfruit, and young maize, tofu, banana blossom, among other ingredients, are labeled as "non-vegetarian," such as young jackfruit, and young maize, chicken salad, young jackfruit, and young maize, fried fish, and fried pork ribs. Locals, in particular, like the distinctive, sophisticatedly produced sauce known as "chao" (fermented tofu) on a regular basis.

Hue vegetarian foods provide appropriate nutrients and demonstrate Hue's beautiful culinary flair, thanks to well-trained cooks.
