If you’re a travelling vegan you know how hard it can be to find a meal that doesn’t involve animal products and isn’t a bowl of fries. Besides the language barrier in some countries, it’s a simple fact that many restaurants and cafés don’t offer vegan options. With the growing trend towards vegetarianism and veganism, it’s about time veggie-friendly options became more widespread.
The first country to get ahead of the curve and make sure everyone is catered for? Portugal!
In 2016, the Portugal Vegetarian Society (Associação Vegetariana Portuguesa) gathered more than 15,000 signatures requesting that public institutions and eateries serve at least one vegan option. In 2017, the law was implemented by the Portuguese parliament.
All Portuguese schools, canteens, universities, hospitals, prisons and all other public buildings are legally required to serve plant-based food.
Here are two examples of some Portugues-inspired vegan dishes.
This Portuguese Tomato Rice was inspired by a delicious dish calledarroz malandrinho. It consists of long-grain rice cooked in a tomato sauce, with a texture similar to risotto but less creamy and with a slightly more soup-like consistency. It is flavored with smoked paprika and coriander and dotted with black beans. This dish is not only super flavorsome but also really versatile! It’s hearty and satisfying enough to make up a whole meal but also works really well as a side dish.
Equally, it’s quick and easy enough for weeknight meals, but also delicious enough to feed to guests!
This classic recipe is even easier than the traditional one and only uses 7 ingredients that are easy to find anywhere.
