25 Amazing Vegan Asian Recipes (Healthy, Plant-based)

Vegan Asian recipes are great if you are craving something flavorful and are bored of the same meals everyday.


Vegan Asian Recipes

Vegan Asian Recipes you can make at home and enjoy the flavors of Asia! They are easy, healthy and delicious. Ramen, noodles, stir-fies and tofu make wonderful meals for the whole family! | The Green Loot #vegan #veganrecipes #healthyeating #dairyfree


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.

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 occasions or dinner parties.

You don’t have to go to an expensive restaurant. Just make these recipes and enjoy the flavors of Asia!


Vegan Asian Soup Recipes

Ramen is probably the most well-known Japanese dish out there and it’s for a good reason. It has the 3 “super factors”: super easy, super healthy and super delicious.  This coconut curry ramen will make you feel like you are strolling on the streets of Tokyo.


2. Ramen with Grilled Vegetables and Tofu

A very good example, that even a soup can be insanely filling and satisfying. A big bowl of this vegan tofu ramen will fuel your for hours.


3. Vietnamese Pho Noodle Soup

I think the best kind of dish is one, which you can sneak a ton of veggies in.


5. Sesame Noodles

Simple, but still amazing. The beauty of this recipe is that it takes 10 minutes to make with less, than 10 ingredients, but it’s still as good as if you went to an Asian restaurant. Perfect for busy weeknights.


6. Mongolian Noodles and Veggies Stir Fry

An absolute protein blast, and a creamy peanut delight. Choose this Buddha Bowl for an easy, healthy weight loss dinner. I guarantee, you won’t be midnight snacking.


8. Teriyaki Cauliflower Rice Bowl

A genius food hack, really. Rice is a healthy enough side dish to begin with, but when you swap it out for delicious cauliflower “rice”, you’ve got yourself the ultimate healthy meal.


9. Thai Veggie Quinoa Bowl

Quinoa is a vegan’s best friend. Just like cauliflower rice, it provides a healthier, even more nutritious alternative to rice. Combined with veggies, it’s a perfect healthy lunch or dinner.


10. Garlic Tofu with Rice

The beautiful dark brown color of the garlic tofu and the gorgeous white color of the rice makes for a crazy mouthwatering dish. The taste is even better. Garlic makes the tofu so delicious, eating one bowl won’t be enough.


Vegan Spring Rolls

If you want to choose a nice, filling meal, I definitely recommend this tofu spring roll recipe. You can dip the rolls into the delicious peanut butter sauce, for a fantastic flavor.


Vegan Asian Veggie Salads

If there is a way to make yourself like broccoli, this peanut flavored delight is certainly it. Broccoli and tofu are full of protein, so, you can even choose it, for a post-workout meal to muscle up.


14. Cucumber Sesame Salad

15. Lettuce Wraps

Eggplants usually don’t get much love in American cooking (they should though!). Although, this recipe will melt the heart of even the most-avid eggplant-haters.


17. Sesame Cucumber Salad

Colorful, swirly, crunchy. This salad is as a perfect fun side dish as it gets. With a little sprinkle of sesame, it is an exciting choice to upgrade any meal.


18. Garlic Green Beans

Green beans are one of my absolute favorites when it comes to side dishes. The texture and taste is such a good combination.


19. Quinoa Slaw

A healthy, vegan Asian twist on the classic Cole slaw. It can be fit in clean eating and weight loss diets as well. Don’t worry though, just because it’s super healthy doesn’t mean that it’s not supper yummy! (It is.)


Vegan Asian Staples

The Bubble Tea craze doesn’t seem to settle down. It’s understandable of course, this interesting drink is almost a whole meal in itself. The “bubbles” are yummy tapioca pearls.

Even though this bubble tea has melon, which is a summer fruit, it is irresistibly delicious on warmer fall days too.
