4 amazingly tasty vegan recipes created by Chef Qi Ping here. In this part 1 article, you’ll find a cooking video for two delicious recipes.

Since the beginning of its history, Singapore has been a culturally diversified island, with traders from all over the world being attracted to the island and migrants from Malaysia, India, and some regions of Southern China integrating into a multiracial and multicultural society.

This melting pot of cultures led to the fusion of vegan food that this population enjoys today. With globalization and the availability of fascinating vegan ingredients worldwide, chefs are adopting international styles and creating their one of a kind culinary identity with fusion food combining traditional recipes with contemporary ones.

 

Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, there has been a surge of interest in tasty vegan recipes both globally and in Singapore. The vegan food sector has grown during the pandemic as more consumers are shifting toward more sustainable and healthier lifestyles. In 2020, there has been a substantial increase in the number of eateries and supermarkets offering vegan foods.
