Recipe Tips for Vegan Shawarma

Substitute beef for tofu: Replace the tofu beef with soy fillets or crispy chickpeas to try other vegan variations of this shawarma plate and a change of flavors and textures.

Serve with a salad: Make it a healthy and filling meal by serving the vegan shawarma plate with a fresh green salad for added nutrition.

Use leftover tofu beef: Don’t let anything go to waste! Use leftover tofu beef to top pasta, salads or Buddha bowls.

Swap rice varieties: Experiment with different grains by replacing brown basmati rice with quinoa or cauliflower rice with a low-carb alternative that’s high in fiber and nutrients.

Make it soy-free: Choose chickpeas or black beans instead of tofu to make the dish soy-free. Be sure to use gluten-free soy sauce or tamari for a gluten-free option.

Store leftovers: Store leftover Vegan Shawarma Plate in the refrigerator for up to four days in an airtight container. Simply reheat it and enjoy it whenever you need it.

Serve with grilled vegetables: Improve the nutritional profile of your meal by serving it with grilled vegetables. Smoked char adds depth of flavor and vitamins to your shawarma plate.

Add marinated vegetables: Want a little spice? Add pickled vegetables, like cucumbers, jalapenos or beets for a touch of heat and sour flavors.

To make this more macro friendly just add less cashew garlic sauce to decrease the amount of fat.
