人们都知道素食有利于身体健康,但有一种素食料理不仅如此,还能通过禅式理念有助于精神健康,它就是精进料理(Shojin Ryori)。 精进料理是一种日式素食料理,它原本只是禅寺里修行的和尚食用的料理,由于其健康和禅式的烹煮理念,后来日渐兴起。 “精进”在佛教的意思是:专心致志学佛或洁净身心,不食酒肉,节制欲望。不浪费和保留食材原味,是精进料理的基本原则,它也要求烹调者做菜时专心致志,没有杂念。日本禅师相信,做菜的人专心、有爱心地做菜,烹调出的料理会特别“有能量”。因此,精进料理被认为具治愈心灵创伤的神奇效果。 Enso Kitchen 是第一个将日本精进料理带入新加坡的素食馆。因为吃长素,而吃腻了本地素食,创办人Danny Chu决定辞去工作,到日本禅寺学做素菜,学艺两年后,将精进料理引进新加坡。 Enso Kitchen只在每星期天下午于GOTO Japanese Restaurant开放,食客务必要先拨电预订。 精进料理使用豆制品、蔬菜和其他季节性原料为食材,能够充分体现自然界的改变。精进料理不同于其他素食料理的最大之处在于准备和烹煮食物的时候,融入很多佛教理念,一切都是从“心”出发,和禅心一脉相通。 一般味增汤 (miso soup)是要把豆腐切块,精进料理则是用手搓碎豆腐,目的在于体现平等心。禅师认为,让豆腐与汤混为一体,舀汤时大家都有同样分量的豆腐,不会引起区别心。 人们通常会点自己爱吃的东西,比如喜欢吃甜食的人,往往会点甜食,结果营养不均衡。因此,他们通常不让顾客点菜,任由他们调配食物,有助于他们培养无所求的心态,上菜后反而有惊喜的感觉。 笑容可掬,能言善道的Danny会穿着日式厨师的服装,脚踩木屐,介绍精进料理蕴含的哲理,才让食客动筷。精进料理虽然与禅宗密不可分,但它只要求做菜的人专心,不涉及诵经等宗教仪式,因此不同宗教信仰的人士也接受。 如此可见,料理本身包涵了很深的学问和哲学,要作出好吃健康的精进料理,不仅要具备高超的厨艺,还要有深厚的“禅”的心灵修养,才能带出食物最原有的自然香味。 Enso Kitchen 电邮:adm...
