Ten Vegan Dishes To Try Today!
What is more enjoyable than food? Nothing beats tucking into a freshly prepared meal after a long day of trying to beat that high score, attempting to complete a faerie quest or simply exploring the many lands of Neopia. While some neopets are willing to eat anything (all you Grarrls and Skeiths out there – I’m looking at you!), others may gravitate toward specific kinds of foods.
Taking into account that different neopets have different tastes and preferences, I have compiled a list of ten vegan food items, which not only is perfect for those who do not wish to eat any meat or milk products, but also is great for those neopets who wish to try something different.
So, go on, have a look at the many vegan dishes I have managed to find from all around Neopia!
Disclaimer: The following food items listed below do not contain any meat, fish, petpets, neggs, milk or cheese products of any kind.
1. Vegan Turkey Dinner
Sometimes, neopet owners find themselves staring into their kitchen cupboards, scratching their heads and wondering what in Neopia they should feed their vegan pets. A basic but tasty dish is the vegan turkey dinner. Using tofu as a substitute for turkey and with mounds of vegetables and cranberries on the side, this meal is ideal for satisfying your pet’s hungry bellies. Now nobody needs to feel left out at Thanksgiving dinner!
2. Vegetable Soup Pot
A vegan staple, this vegetable soup is as healthy and delicious as you can get. Not only does it come in a large and attractive bowl, but it is also chock full of many different kinds of vegetables, chopped and sliced into easy to eat, bite-size pieces. The large garnish in the centre of the bowl adds to the flavour of this broth and makes sure that this soup is anything but bland.

The three steaming dumplings are served on a bed of seaweed, and are large enough to be shared, since even one dumpling is sure to curb any neopets’ appetite. A handy pair of chopsticks is also provided, since trying to eat this dish with your hands (or paws) will get a little messy. Not to mention it is bad manners, too!

Nothing is better for warming you up than a nice big bowl of lentil stew.
