Delicious Vietnam #6 attracted some wonderful entries, with a slant towards vegetarian dishes. Vegetables feature prominently in Vietnamese food anyway, and at least several days a month many Vietnamese eat vegetarian dishes, so it is no surprise to see many participants posting vegetarian recipes. All of the posts look delicious and will have you eager to try recreating them.
My take on papaya salad can be found here: http://rumahmakanmurni.blogspot.com/2010/10/papaya-salad-with-grilled-shrimp-goi-u.html
Hong and Kim posted a recipe for soup with stuffed bitter melon. Their version of canh kho qua can be found here: http://ravenouscouple.
Mai also chose to feature a soup. She chose to post a recipe for bun bung. Here's a link to her dish: http://www.flavorboulevard.com/bun-bung-sort-of/
Lan posted a classic Vietnamese comfort food, com ga. I certainly wouldn't be angry about having this for dinner. Here's the link to her post: Com Ga - Vietnamese Chicken & Rice
Pepy posted two related recipes. She presented some delicious looking chao tom accompanied by nuoc mam cham. Here are the links to her dishes: http://indonesia-eats.blogspot.com/2010/10/vietnamese-dipping-fish-sauce-nuoc-mam.html and http://indonesia-eats.blogspot.com/2010/10/vietnamese-grilled-shrimp-on-sugarcane.html
Debra chose to do a vegetarian version of banh mi. Her version features a mushroom paté and looks delicious. Here's a link to her post:http://bearheadsoup.blogspot.com/2010/10/banh-mi-chay-delicious-vietnam-6.html
Finally, we had several desserts. Miss Adventure posted a recipe for a simple, yet delicious banh khoai mi. This is just the kind of dessert my wife loves, so I'm sure I'll be giving it a try sometime soon. The link to her post is here: http://missadventureathome.blogspot.com/2010/10/banh-khoai-mi-vietnamese-cassava.html
Julia also posted a recipe for a dessert. Che is one of those treats that people discover when they get the chance to travel to Vietnam. There are countless versions using a variety of ingredients. Julia's features corn, lotus seeds and peanuts. Here's a link to her post: http://beginnermomontherun.blogspot.com/2010/10/delicious-vietnam-6-hubsters-che-with.html
