Forget Chinese takeout. You can make delicious and healthy Asian vegetarian recipes at home easily and quickly! Here are 15 of our favorite Asian-inspired meatless main dishes, from curries to spring rolls.
Asian cuisine lends itself well to vegetarian and vegan cooking. It’s full of flavor, vegetable heavy, and uses some of our favorite ingredients – like tofu and tempeh – in everyday cooking!
These recipes are inspired by my travels in Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam. And by living Holland, where delicious Indonesian food is everywhere. And by my adoration for Sunday night Chinese takeout.
Due to my own allergies and dietary restrictions, these Asian vegetarian recipes are all peanut-, fish-, and meat-free (and most are nut-free as well). They’re also all stupid easy to whip up, making them a great choice for an Asian-inspired vegetarian meal plan. Enjoy!
