Vegan version of the famous Emily Mariko's trend using Red Lentil as Salmon. It's easy to make, flavor-packed and very realistic!
Salmon Rice Bowl trend with a Plant-based Twist
Previously, I recreated the TikTok trend Salmon Rice Bowl with a soy tofu version here. If you are foodie or who watches a lot of food content, you have probably encountered the famous Salmon Rice Bowl. It's still one of my go-to quick and easy meals that I have pretty often!
I have recently started a series of recipe blog posts about Soy-Free tofu and made Tofu from Red Lentils. As the color of the tofu is pink and very similar to salmon, I also decided to make another version of this trend using Red Lentil Tofu. I love how the final product turned out and how realistic the taste and texture of this vegan salmon is!
Red Lentil 'Salmon'
To learn how to make tofu from red lentils, go here!
To give it a fishy taste, we are marinating the red lentil tofu with:
- Soy sauce
- Nori sheet
- Garlic powder
- Vegetable stock or water
Fry in oil until both sides of the vegan 'salmon' are golden brown then pour in the remaining sauce.
How to serve this Red Lentil 'Salmon'
You can serve this Red Lentil 'Salmon' in a mixed rice bowl like suggested in this recipe or in other salmon dishes: pasta, stir fry or on its own!
To assemble the rice bowl with classic ingredients like cucumber, avocado and a generous drizzle of vegan mayonnaise and sriracha! Do not forget to use nori sheet to hold the ingredients into a bite!
