Vegan-Friendly Sashimi Substitutes

Vegan Seastar Creates Realistic Plant-Based "Sashimi"

— October 22, 2018 — Eco
When it comes to vegetarian and vegan-friendly sushi options, those who follow a plant-based diet are often forced to settle on lackluster rolls that simply exclude fish and do not consider how the overall eating experience may be enhanced with other ingredients and textures—but a new brand called Vegan Seastar is out to change this.

Vegan Seastar is a new brand created in partnership between Amsterdam's Vegan Junk Food Bar and food marketer Vegan XL. Together, the pair created an entirely plant-based sashimi alternative that is highly realistic in terms of having a look, taste and texture that is comparable to real, raw fish.

The vegan-friendly sashimi is made from a base of tapioca starch and seaweed glucose, which helps to create a fishy flavor. At Vegan Junk Food Bar, Vegan Seastar's "sashimi" is served with wasabi and pickled ginger.
