Cambodian Vegetarian Recipes


Cambodian cuisine, which is commonly known as Khmer cuisine, is comprised mostly of rice, noodles, soups, vegetables and fruits, making it well suited for a vegetarian diet. Drawing on mostly Southeast Asian and French Colonial influences, Khmer recipes are quite similar to those found neighboring Thailand and Vietnam, but not as spicy.

Curries and soups predominate Khmer culture, using ingredients as common as coconut milk and as unique as preserved lemon. Cambodians use a complex curry paste called kroeung, which is similar to Thai curry paste, but with the addition of a number of exotic dried spices.
