Thailand has some of the most delicious vegetarian dishes that you can not find anywhere else. Here, discover the top vegetarian Thai dishes that you must try during your next visit here at Yummy Thai Flower Mound!
Laab Jay (Vegan Laab)
This might be a strange food to add to the list — laab usually only consists of lettuce leaves and … meat. Yes, laab is a spicy meat salad that originates from the north of Thailand and is a popular dish in Laos. This dish varies from region to region, and can be adjusted to be made vegetarian. That being said, this is one of our favorite vegetarian dishes in Thailand. Replace the meat with some tofu and it is just as delicious, if not more, than its original counterpart. Be warned — this salad consists of a variety of spices, of which tend to be on the spicier side. If you’re in the mood to switch it up, have it served with pumpkin and onions.
Tao Hoo Song Kreung (Mixed Tofu)
We can not get enough of Thailand’s tofu dishes. One of our favorite dishes is one of the most simple: mixed tofu. Mixed tofu is usually fried with basil and several types of tofu and other protein supplements, mixing together to make a mouthwatering stir-fry. These tofu dishes are cooked to perfection and usually served over a plate of steaming rice.
Pad Phak (Stir-Fried Vegetables)
This Thai classic will leave vegetarians and carnivores alike full and content. Most Thai dishes attempt to combine as many flavors as possible to make the most noteworthy dishes, and stir-fried vegetables are no exception. While these veggies may sound rather bland, when they’re combined with a spoonful of sugar, salt and some spices, you may find yourself ordering another helping of this delicious dish.
Pak Boong (Morning Glory)
This is one of Thailand’s most popular foods, yet most of us are only familiar with the flower. As delicious as morning glory is, this dish only consists of a few ingredients and is known for being extremely healthy. This salad is seasoned with soybean paste, soy sauce, garlic, chilies and more. Morning glory is somehow salty, spicy, sour and crunchy all at the same time, satisfying anyone’s palette. This dish is oftentimes made with oyster sauce, so to keep it vegetarian, be sure to tell whoever is making your meal that you would like it omitted.
