Cap Cay is originally chinese cuisine, but we eat a lot of it in Indonesia. Basically it is vegetable casterole, but you can add chicken or sea food (shrimp or squib). My mother prepares the best cap cay and this is how she cooks cap cay. I miss her cooking :-(.

- 1 tomato (sliced thin)
- 1 leek (sliced)

How to cook:
- Steam brokoli and carrot for 15 minutes
