Food plays an essential role in China and while each region and home has its traditions, this special meal will typically feature delectable spring rolls, dumplings, noodles, and much more. We put together this guide to help you have vegan Chinese recipes at home.
Hot and sour soup
There is no connection between making the ideal cup of hot and sour soup and eating meat (or egg for that matter). What makes this dish so special is the right blend of dried chili peppers, sesame oil, soy sauce, and just a pinch of sugar. YUM! Protein can be obtained from tofu, as in this recipe.
Potstickers with mushrooms
Potstickers are a popular Chinese appetizer, but they’re usually packed with meat, which makes them a bit unhealthy. These, however, are not among them. Instead of meat, mushrooms serve as a meat substitute, with scallions, ginger, and sesame oil all contributing to the dish’s flavor. This dish also includes instructions for making a simple dipping sauce with only six ingredients, which is included with the recipe.
Kung pao tofu is a type of tofu that is fried.
Although kung pao is traditionally served with chicken, substituting tofu for the poultry results in a dish that is just as wonderful. It acts as a sponge for the sesame oil, ginger, vegetable broth, and spicy sauce that are all included in this recipe, as well as for the other ingredients. There are also a lot of vegetables in this recipe, which means it is just as high in fiber as it is in protein.
Lo han jai (Buddha’s Delight)
In Thailand, lo han jai (also known as Buddha’s Delight) is usually cooked with 18 different vegetables. This recipe includes suggestions for how to scale it down while still ensuring that the food turns out as beautifully as it should in the end. This dish is traditionally served during the Lunar New Year celebrations in southern China, although it is a dish that can be eaten at any time of the year.
Cauliflower in orange color
This dish is for you if you enjoy Chinese food that is more sweet than spicy. It is also suitable for vegetarians. Crispy-coated cauliflower is cooked in the oven with a tangy sauce made with citrus juice, tamari, and maple syrup before being topped with a sour sauce. You’ll be licking your fingers to make sure you get every last drop of the delicious orange goodness out of it.
Chow mein with vegetables
No other dish will suffice when a hankering for chow mein strikes, and fortunately, making it at home is incredibly simple. This recipe not only demonstrates how to stir-fry chow mein noodles with vegetables and spices, but it also includes step-by-step instructions for producing a simple chow mein sauce. All of the ingredients come together quickly, making this a terrific weekday dish to have on hand.
