What Do Vegans Eat?

There seems to be this misbelief that “A vegan is a vegetarian’s vegetarian”.

A vegan’s food is not just salads and soy milk. Human psychology is such that, when people notice other people try something outside their comfort zone, they start to make assumptions to make themselves feel better, just like they do about vegans and vegan food. Some call it a fad diet or a trend because most cannot recognize the animal cruelty, health, and environmental impact of a non-plant-based diet.

Many Indian brands have been creating tempeh, tofu, nut butters, dairy-free cheese, and milk. Some restaurants are entirely vegan or have a large section of vegan choices. Since 2020, the number of vegan brands in India has seen boundless growth, and it is encouraging for trying to make the switch.

Food
Now when it comes to food, the choice is abundant, delicious, and elevating. You can maintain an Indian vegetarian diet without compromising by switching to vegan ghee, vegan butter, and tofu for dairy-based paneer.

You don’t have to let go of your favorite Indian snacks, chaats, parathas, dosas, and idlis. Butter and other dairy ingredients are usually add-ons that can easily be eliminated at home or replaced in restaurants. Most Indians don’t think about how the thalis and meals are primarily vegan anyway until that extra spoon of ghee is added on top.
If you choose to prepare some items at home, you will see how you can make preservative-free, healthy items like peanut butter, hummus, and create creamy portions of pasta at home. They are all pretty cheap and straightforward to make.

Pro tip – if you are dining out – Asian restaurants are generally vegan-friendly. Indian restaurants tend to use a lot of ghee and butter to make their dishes rich. Mediterranean dishes are also mostly vegan-friendly.
