One of my favorite meals is a big Asian noodle bowl. Whether it’s a creamy curry soup, a cold Asian noodle salad with a fresh ginger-miso dressing, a veggie-loaded lo mein or a flavorful teriyaki tofu, these plant-based dishes are an easy way to put a healthy vegan dinner on the table.

Korean Vegan Recipes
Curious about the Korean food kimchi, but not what recipes to try? This twist on a traditional Korean side dish, Bibimguksa, is an easy way to introduce kimchi to your dinner guests in the colder winter months. Made with noodles, a healthy dose of vegetables and (of course) kimchi, this brothy twist on bibim guksa is a wonderful introduction to Korean food.
Have you ever made pickled red onions? This simple condiment will transform your tacos, I swear! And don’t stop there. With this quick pickled vegetable recipe, you can pickle a variety of vegetables, including pickled carrots, cauliflower, green beans and…of course…cucumbers!
If you haven’t yet tried bibimbap, you’re missing out! Bibimbap, a Korean dish, means mixed ingredients (“bibim”) and rice (“bap”). Here, I’ve created a vegan version using a Korean-marinated tofu crumble and crispy rice. These ingredients are complemented by quick-pickled vegetables, roasted sweet potatoes and sautéed shiitake mushrooms. This vegan dish offers up a ton of flavor. It’s sweet, salty, spicy and a bit tangy with a ton of umami! It’s also a great dish to serve a crowd, offering up great aesthetics and the flexibility for each diner to build their own bowl.
