Gado-Gado 2 (Malay Vegetable Salad)
Irene-Anne Monteiro - Singapore

This is an ideal salad for vegetarians.
There are many vegans and lacto-vegans here, we are multireligious and multiracial.
I am myself a Christan of Portuguese/British descent, I was trained at a UK university in Food and Nutrition (Tropical& Western Nutrition).
I also worked in K St NW Washington DC, my late father served as an ambasaador there. SALAD

  • 1 small cut bean sprouts (tailed, washed, served raw)
