You won’t believe how realistic these compassionate recipes are!
Not sure whether it’s because I’m a water sign, or because I was born in the summer when everyone goes crazy about seafood, but I do love and seek the taste of it. Now, remember that seaweed is vegan and considered as ‘seafood’ too. Plus, just like cheese and meat – it’s not that hard to find a cruelty-free substitute to please your tastebuds. And if you’re still wondering why a vegan would crave these products, you can take a look at this scientific explanation right here.
If you’re anything like me, you’ll love the following 5 ideas that perfectly mimic the taste and feel of your favorite comfort seafood meals!
1. Crunchy Vegan Crab Rangoon
These of course taste best deep fried, but can also be folded into triangles and baked instead.
20 oz. can of young green jackfruit, in brine or water
2 cups vegetable broth
1, 8 oz. tub of Tofutti brand non-hydrogenated cream cheese (softened at room temperature for about an hour before using)
1 scallion, thinly sliced
2 tsp toasted sesame oil
square vegan wonton wrappers
canola or grapeseed oil

Irresistible King Oyster Calamari
Easy, healthy and so good for satisfying that fried food itch.
Creamy “Clam” Chowder
The creamy texture of the soup is a dead ringer and the chewy texture of the king oyster mushrooms very much resembles that of clams. The flavor of this recipe is sweeter and maybe a little richer than the real thing, but it does taste awesome. Be forewarned, this stuff is FILLING! A little goes a long way.
