Cooking, like taking a pop quiz and defusing a bomb on national television, is often a source of stress. Disarm your hunger with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of vegan and vegetarian Chinese fare at Gourmet Vegetarian Restaurant in Richmond Hill. Gourmet Vegetarian Restaurant sates hunger with a meatless menu of herbivorous Chinese fare forged with fresh ingredients, from traditional vegan and vegetarian noshes to entrees featuring mock meat. A hot pot fabricated from taro, veggie chicken, and coconut milk ($8.25) melts the hearts of growling stomach yetis, and fried tofu wallows in a luxurious patina of sweet-and-sour sauce ($7.25). Spoons eager to live out pseudo-Cousteau fantasies swan dive into a balmy bowl of Asian hot-and-sour noodle soup rich with veggie seafood ($13 for a large, $6.99 for a small). Roast vegetables in portuguese sauce ($8.99) whisk taste buds westward on an Iberian flavour sojourn, and feeding frenzies take a turn for the dulcet with a dessert such as a sesame-rice ball gracefully afloat in ginger soup ($3.99).
