25 Amazing Vegan Asian Recipes (Healthy, Plant-based)
Asia is my favorite continent, for a lot of reasons. It’s one of my dreams to live there one day. It is true, that Asian people consume a lot of sea food, so as a vegan it would a bit more difficult to eat, but it’s not as bad as it may seem. As the below shown delicious recipes show, you can veganize literally almost anything, so it would be fine, I think.
The positive side is that Asian people eat a lot of veggies, and I mean a LOT. And the best thing is that they don’t eat them because they are perpetually on a diet. They eat them, because they know it’s healthy and delicious. Even their desserts are mainly made of fruits, veggies and rice. No wonder, they live such a long life and have such amazing hair and skin. (Seriously, I love their raven black hair and porcelain skin. They are beautiful.)
Now, generally, the meals are spicy, but that aspect can be easily avoided if needed. In these recipes, you will find amazing healthy ingredients that are really flavorful, and even the most simple meals can be used during special occassions or dinner parties.
You don’t have to go to an expensive restaurant. Just make these recipes and enjoy the flavors of Asia!
