Some people can go vegan overnight, some transition from vegetarianism, and others gradually wean themselves off of different animal products in stages. If you struggle to imagine a world without seafood, this post is for you.
Veganism has made great strides in recreating your favorite seafood dishes without fish and without the unnecessary strain on our oceans. There’s vegan shrimp, vegan scallops, vegan tuna, vegan fish filets, vegan ceviche, vegan calamari, vegan salmon, vegan lobster and of course vegan crab cakes. You should definitely check out those examples above, they all look super yummy and I will definitely try my hand at some of these in the future.
So how the heck do you re-imagine seafood as vegan? Jackfruit, carrots, oyster mushrooms and of course soy and tempeh can all be used to recreate your favorite seafood dishes without cruelty and without harming our planet.
Overfishing is a very serious problem that is sometimes overshadowed by factory farming. Both industries account for trillions upon trillions of deaths each year. If I told you the numbers, you wouldn’t be able to fathom the sheer magnitude of killing that happens in our oceans.
