The pickled vegetables in Chaoshan can be diversified. The most common are olive powder, olive vegetable, preserved vegetable (dried radish), tribute vegetable (mustard), pickled vegetable (mustard), soybean paste ginger, tribute rot, etc.
Chaoshan people like to eat "Zaxian" because Chaoshan people like to eat porridge. Many families eat porridge in the morning and evening. Eating porridge can nourish the stomach. Chaoshan people cook porridge slowly over a small fire. When buying rice, they also pay attention to the types of cooking and porridge. When boiled, the rice is plump and sticky, especially Chaoshan casserole porridge. Compared with the casserole surimi in old Guangzhou, it feels fuller and more granular.
I remember when I was young, sometimes I had a fever or got sick, and my appetite was poor. My mother would always bring me a bowl of warm white porridge, and then add a little pickled vegetables, which was especially appetizing.
When eating in Chaoshan area, small plates (peanuts, pickles, etc.) will be placed for appetizers before or after meals.
