5 Vegan Recipe Ideas

Vegan recipe ideas are plant-based, healthy and simple to create at home! Using your own coconut bowls and coconut cutlery, you can create a plastic-free meal any time of the day. With so much interest being generated around ‘plant-based diets’ and ‘the vegan lifestyle’ it has become a goal for many to add more fruit and vegetables to their meals.

What does it mean to be ‘vegan’? The UK Vegan Society (1988) decided to define veganism as “a way of living which seeks to exclude, as far as is possible, all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing or any other purpose”. Whilst veganism is certainly considered to be a trending topic it is important to remember that we can all do our part when it comes to making more sustainable choices for our planet and our own health. Coconut bowls not only look beautiful, but they are good for the environment too.

Check out our 5 vegan inspired recipe ideas that you can create at home.

#1 Vietnamese Rice Noodle Salad with Tofu (Bun Chay)

What you will need:

Salad Dressing

  • ¼ Cup of Rice Vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons of Lemon or Lime Juice
  • 2 Tablespoons of Coconut Sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons of Soy Sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon of Grated Lemongrass

Herbs & Garnish

To make this salad it is best to prepare everything and then create the bowl right before serving. Simply mix the salad dressing together until everything is well combined and adjust the taste to your personal preference e.g. less sugar or more salt.

Next, slice the fresh vegetables and assemble them in your coconut bowl. Prepare the rice noodles by following the instructions on the packet which will usually require you to place them into boiling water and wait for them to soften. Once cooled, mix the salad, noodles and dressing together.

Pan-fry the tofu until golden brown and place on top of the salad and add herbs and garnish. This style of salad is so light and healthy and looks amazing served in a natural coconut bowl.
