Vegan Chinese takeaway recipes

Warning: mouthwatering pictures incoming!

Crispy hoisin mushroom pancakes

We weren’t going to say it, but these taste even better than the crispy non-vegan pancakes that they were inspired by! Their sweet and peppery depth of flavour has hoisin and Chinese five spice to thank.

Vegan Bao

abo buns

These bao are filled with sticky glazed tofu, cabbage and cucumber then topped with a salted peanut crumb! They’re the ultimate comfort food in our opinion. 

Mushroom and ginger stir fry

Isn’t the dream having a delicious dinner that will be ready in minutes? Well, this is the dish to make those dreams a tasty reality. 

Sweet and sour pumpkin

The pumpkin for this dish is braised and coated in one of the tastiest sauces you’ll ever come across. Don’t just take our word for it, try it yourself.

Hoisin aubergine stir fry
