3 Vegan-Friendly Cuisines Around the World

by Vegan Culinary Cruises Luxury – All Inclusive – All Vegan
Veganism is a lifestyle commitment to refuse the consumption of meat and animal products. There are countless benefits in getting into veganism but it is easy to go off course when it is not done right the first time. The first step in transitioning to a vegan diet is to continuously try new and different kinds of food. It is important to find something you love and most importantly, something you can stick to. By trying various cuisines and traveling vegan or getting on vegan culinary cruises, you will find great food ideas to displace the meat induced meals you used to have before being vegan. 


Vegan-Friendly Cuisines around the world


Indian Food

Vegetarian heaven- yet vegan hell. Indian cuisine is widely known for vegetarian and vegan food. If you have eaten in an Indian restaurant, you know it is hard to pick choices that do not have traces of dairy - because almost essentially, milk and yogurt can be found in appetizers, main dishes to desserts. Nan and chapati, the counterpart of a Mexican wheat tortilla, is the center of all Indian dishes. 

Most of them contain milk in the dough, making it hard for vegans to decide. However, if you are looking for a quick vegan meal, you can opt for Chana Masala which is traditionally consistently vegan. It’s usually paired perfectly with basmati rice cooked with vegetable oil. 

Ethiopian Food

Ethiopian food culture is closely similar with Indian food as their entrees are usually served with dosa-like Injera, which is a sour pancake made with a fermented batter of ground lentils, but thicker. Injeras are typically served with traditional entrees composed of sauces and dishes. Ethiopian cuisine is extremely vegan and almost all traditional restaurants follow a strict practice regarding veganism. When dining out, the only factor that you could ask about is the oil that they use because it usually determines whether their meals are vegan or not.  

Italian Food

With various assortments of bread, pasta, and seasonal vegetables, Italian cuisine is truly dominated by veganism (without feeling like it). Often, it is also common in vegans to feel like cheating on their diet because of how good it is. The key ingredients for Italian cooking are onions, tomatoes, garlic, olive oil, meats and cheeses, summer squash, fresh or dried herbs, balsamic vinegar, olives, and pasta. 



When trying new types of vegan food in restaurants, food chains, travels like a vegan culinary cruise or a vegan holiday, it is not enough to taste them. To get more out of what you paid for, it is also helpful to take note of the key ingredients, taste notes and recipes by casually talking to the chef or cook if opportunities arise.
