My sister does not eat fish or any form of meat but she takes egg. To get on her nerves at times, I jokingly call her a vegetarian and she argues that she cannot be a vegetarian because the meals are mostly boring, expensive and largely consist of green vegetables….lol, I don’t know how she got that mentality.
These 10 meals listed below are just a few examples of African dishes that can be classified as vegan dishes and are also appetizing.
- South African Chakalaka –
I first heard about Chakalaka from Blogger & Youtuber Sisiyemmie . This meal is very easy to make and the main ingredient is carrot. >>>RECIPE HERE.
- Akara ( Beans cake) –
You must have heard about Akara from my older post ( click HERE to read). Akara is so delicious I don’t think there’s a Nigerian that hasn’t tried this food and loved it. It my go to breakfast and I usually take it with bread in the form of a burger or with Ogi.
- Nigerian puff puff –
This snack is popular because of of its sweet taste and how soft the snack is when eaten.
- Vegan Jollof Rice
There are many variations of this meal across Africa.
- Groundnut soup –
This West African dish I’d made from raw or roasted groundnut, tomatoes, onions, spices and oil cooked over low heat. It can be eaten with potatoes, Eba/Fufu and rice.
- Yam and Eggs –
This is a common traditional Nigerian breakfast dish.
- Shakshuka –
This is a Tunisia dish that consists of poached egg in simmering stew, chilli pepper, onions and spices.
- Plantain Bread–
Africans loveeee plantain . If you have overly ripe plantains, it can be converted to bread or cake simply.
- African Stewed Black-eyed beans –
Instead of the traditional palm oil in making beans, tomato stew is used.
- Ethiopian Spiced Red Lentis –
Which other African meals do you know that are vegan dishes? I would love to read your comments .
