Our Favourite Vegan Katsu Recipes
Sweet, fragrant, crunchy and warming: All things the perfect vegan katsu curry should aim to evoke. We’ve put together a list of our favourite plant-based recipes to get you excited for tonight’s dinner.
Here are our top picks, all you’ve got to do is narrow it down to one.
The name katsu traditionally refers to panko breadcrumb-covered meats in Japanese cuisines. However, these delicious recipes are all vegan, so you’ll only find expertly cooked tofu and hearty slices of veg.
The curry sauce that’s integrally linked to the katsu is a fragrant and mild curry made from plenty of fresh ginger, turmeric, soy sauce and coconut milk.
