    It would be so much easier to be vegan in India! I am amazed at anyone who can be vegetarian or vegan in China. Way to go Jocelyn!!

    I think if I was vegetarian, my in-laws would be supportive, but it would be hard, especially living in a small Chinese city where people don’t really understand different types of diets.

    This looks delicious! I’m going to try this next weekend. It reminds me of Gözleme, which is a Turkish flatbread. I really like this (vegetarian) recipe: but there are also vegan versions with potatoes or spinach.

    It is so nice to hear that you and your MIL share a bond and she respects your dietary choices. It is amazing how food connects and brings people together.

    I may just have to try the recipe myself.

    Shandong shaobing is normally vegan-friendly.

    Your recipe sounds great, thanks for sharing!
    I am not vegetarian, but only eat meat once in a while. In HK, I leave out meat completely as there are so many vegan Buddhist restaurants for me to go to. When we went to Fijuan, I always had to fight with restaurant staff not to add any seafood or fish stock to my dishes, as they didn’t recognize it as meat.

    I am so glad that Chinese mom started to make more vegetable dishes for me, because sometimes I was amazed how many different dead animals can end up on a dining table at once. Uh!
