Vegetarian Lo Pak Ko

Lo Pak Ko is a delicious appetizer in many Hong Kong restaurants. Actually it is easy to make, but it takes a lot of time to do so.

The ingredients for a group of people are:
- 1 Chinese White Radish (Daikon) (1350 g) (which I will call white beet for convenience)
- 1600 ml water
- 450 g rice flour
- Chinese mushrooms
- Quorn vegetarian meat
- salt
- sugar
- pepper
- sesame oil
- sun flower oil

First we prepare the ingredients. Mix 2/3 of the water with the rice flour. The mushrooms need to be soaked in hot water, then chopped in thin slices. Chop the daikon in thin slices. Prepare a steaming pan with some sun flower oil for later on.

Now we pan fry the mushrooms, daikon and vegetarian quorn meat with the rest of the water. We add salt, sugar, pepper, sesame oil to taste. Cook it for about 15 minutes, turn off the heat, then add the rice flour mixture. Mix until it becomes a sticky substance.

Put it in the oiled steaming pan and we steam it for about 1 hour until it sets. Leave it to cool for 2 hours. Best is to even let it cool down in the fridge for a night. It will cut better.

Next on we chop them into square blocks and pan fry them in some oil.

That's a lot of work..., but it's worth it. I like to use spicy oil with this.
