Central America is an easy place to be vegan.
Naturally the standard diet will contain at least 75% Vegan friendly foods. You’ll be full of beans, rice, veg and there is plenty of fruit sellers on the street and in the markets. No need to be hungry here at all. Probably why I’ve been gaining weight during this trip
Traditional, typical Salvadorian Vegan Food
Casamiento literally translates as marriage in English. It is the marriage between Beans and Rice and the delightful product is on your plate.
Pupusas are amazing. They are lightly fried flat soft pockets made with maiz or rice flour and are stuffed with a filling of your choice. I recommend pumpkin or beans. I’ve been eating bean (frijoles) pupusas literally all day. I have been eating between 3-6 a day depending on whether I have been reviewing Vegan Restaurants in El Salvador. They cost between $0.30-$0.50 each and you can find about 10 pupusa sellers on one block!
Yucca is my guilty pleasure.. This vegetable is like yam and kind of like potato they are usually fried and lightly seasoned.
I still haven’t fallen into the hype about tamales. I think that they are too heavy and thick since their overlying ingredient is flour and corn. These are sold street side for about $0.50-$1 and will definitely fill you up.
Atol de Maiz
Not my thing at all! It is a liquid corn pudding, or drink – whatever you want to call it containing corn on the cob, cornflour, sugar, salt, water and cinnamon.
Where to find these foods?
All of these vegan dishes are all found on the street side. Some blocks even have about 10 to 20 pupusa sellers so you will not find it difficult at all. The good thing is; you will only be spending about $2 to fill you up.
