Bamboo Recipes

The new shoots of some species are edible and used in cooking many Asian bamboo recipes and dishes. The sap of young bamboo stalks can be made into soft drinks or fermented into a sweet wine.

You can buy bamboo shoots either fresh, in cans, or pickled in supermarkets. Some examples of the use of shoots in cooking bamboo recipes are; cutting them into thin slices and boiling them with thick coconut milk and spices, bamboo shoots with mixed vegetables in coconut milk, steamed dumplings, and frying bamboo shoots and wrapping them with vegetables.

In Asian cultures, larger bamboo stalks are often used for cooking food in. The fresh empty and hollow stalks can be placed directly over a flame and used for boiling rice or soups.
