If you are a health freak and swear by your salads, but you’re looking for a vegan option, definitely go for a tofu salad. It is loaded with proteins and is a perfect alternative for chicken and cottage cheese. It tastes very delightful.

These are an adapted vegetarian version of the infamous KFC chicken or crispy fried chicken. These are prepared in a similar way as their chicken counterparts and taste exactly the same. Have them with barbeque sauce or salsa, and you will love it.

Mushrooms have a very similar texture to that of meat and when stuffed inside a burger or a sandwich, you could never tell a difference. Just add your herbs and spices while you sauté your mushrooms, and voila! God blessed us with this one.

6. Soya/Veg Biryani

Yes, it exists. We are here to end this debate because it is true. It doesn’t matter what you add in your biryani, the way you cook it does, along with the spices that go with it. This tastes the same as the non-vegetarian one.

7. Jackfruit curry

Not as commonly known as the other things mentioned, but it is honestly too damn delicious and one of the healthiest food items to exist. It is a type of Tofu made with fermented soya beans. As a vegetarian, you can make patties out of it and even make your own ”meat” balls out of it.
