It’s worth noting that nationwide, there are now over 2.5 million Aussies who identify as vegetarian or vegan. Hundreds of thousands of them call Victoria home, with a huge concentration in Melbourne. It has transformed our culinary industry, with many of the most popular dining establishments adding vegan and vegetarian options for delivery.
Let’s start off by making the distinction between “vegans” and “vegetarians.” While vegans and vegetarians are like two peas in a pod, there are some key differences that make them more like fraternal than identical twins. You will notice that most vegetarian restaurants in Melbourne expand their market by offering vegan options, as well. Some key differences do exist, but they are so minor kitchens can easily handle both diets.
Essentially, vegans swear off any products that are processed from animals in any way. An extreme example is vegans won’t even wear leather - it comes from an animal. Vegetarians, on the other hand, allow eggs and dairy products. As a result, in terms of cuisine taste, vegetarian options have a broader flavor profile than vegans. You get to keep your creamy pasta alfredo sauce – it might be time to substitute zucchini noodles though!
Because the dishes can be so different, it’s important to describe the secrets to what makes a great vegetarian dish – that way you can hold the vegetarian restaurants in Melbourne to task!
The first step is to remember many of your favorite dishes can be made in a veggie style with the same rich flavor. A beginner vegetarian dish might be chili stew with extra beans substituting for the meat. It would have the same delicious flavor from onion, garlic, tomatoes, olive oil, and seasonings, but you would remove the “red meat” component of the dish easily.
As you try different dishes from the vegetarian restaurants in Melbourne, make sure they slow roast veggie plates to dehydrate them enough to maximize the crisped flavor. Vegetarian dishes are made more interesting when different textures make each bite enticing. For example, tofu fried in soy sauce, green onions, zucchini, roasted chickpeas, and diced peanuts brings out the novelty of each bite, creating a salad or stir fry you won’t soon forget.
