This straight forward vegetarian stew recipe is in accordance to a Malaysian Nyonya dish called pongteh. It always requires fermented soybean sauce (taucheo) however I utilize miso paste as an alternate because of that is something we’re extra liable to possess readily on hand. Every time a Southeast Asian recipe requires a fermented soy ingredient love taucheo or fermented bean curd and I rep no longer possess any, my smarty pants trick is to replace it with miso paste. It indubitably works deliciously! —Christine Leong
