Vegan Asian recipes are great if you are craving something flavorful and are bored of the same meals everyday.
Vegan Asian Recipes
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.
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.
Another Asian classic. For reasons similar to the ramen, pho soup makes for a fantastically delicious and healthy vegan dish.
Vegan Asian Noodle Recipes
I think the best kind of dish is one, which you can sneak a ton of veggies in.
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.
This meal is so full of amazing colorful veggies, that it’s hard to resist the temptation to not eat the whole bowl. Taste the beautiful Mongolian rainbow!
Vegan Asian Rice Bowls
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.
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.
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.
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.
This is such a perfect side dish, if you want to sneak a little Asian into your lunch or dinner. Super quick and easy to make, but super delicious nontheless.
15. Lettuce Wraps
It’s always nice to find a healthy alternative to swap out bread for. With these lettuce wraps, you can enjoy a tortilla-free asian-style wrap without having to worry about too much carb.
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.
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.
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
20. Chili Oil
Chili oil is a must have everyday staple if you love Asian food. You can easily spice up any recipe with it. It’s also really easy to make!
21. Wonton Wrappers
Now, that you know the base recipe for wonton wrappers, you can stuff it with your favorite veggies to create a delicious soup.
Vegan Asian Dessert Recipes
These Japanese colorful, sweet little balls are really fun to make. They are a great easy dessert if you are craving something special.
Sticky rice makes a surprisingly good dessert. The mangoes are a really nice addition, that make it super yummy.
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.
