Italians increasingly vegetarian and vegan! It is now well known that those who say goodbye to meat, dairy products and other foods and ingredients of animal origin in favor of products of exclusively plant origin are also growing in the Bel Paese.
This is confirmed by the data *: 7% of the Italian population aged 18 and over are declared vegetarian or vegan. A trend that has remained constant for 5 years now, during which a number of men and women who gravitate around 1,800,000 people opted for more or less strict vegetarian and vegan food regimes: raw food, fruitarians, paleo diet, etc. There are those who make this food choice – and life – for health reasons and those for ethical reasons. Regardless of the numbers, the presence of vegetarians and vegans is now a consolidated reality also on the Italian culinary scene, a reality demonstrated by the growing offer of food products and food and wine proposals suitable to meet the needs of this category of consumers. A rich and varied proposal that also includes Modena Balsamic Vinegar
Vegetarian and vegan cuisine . A waiver to the taste ?
A belief as widespread as it is wrong is that vegetarian and vegan cuisine is poor in taste. Nothing could be more wrong! Through the right mix of selection of quality raw materials, the skilful combination of ingredients and the choice of the right condiments, it is possible to create tasty and light dishes, suitable both for daily eating and for special occasions of celebration and conviviality.
Among the most popular dishes for vegetarians and vegans we remember the classic salads based on vegetables and fruit with lettuce, mixed salad, dried fruit, avocado, berries, hazelnuts, walnuts, blueberries and orange. How not to mention the famous vegan bowls? Simple to do, rich in taste and energy. Just assemble vegetables, fruit and seeds to have a complete dish, which satisfies both the sight and the palate. How to make these dishes even more special?
The Balsamic Vinegar of Modena comes in handy, a perfect companion in the kitchen that, with its delicate but decisive taste, goes well with vegetable dishes and with the other typical ingredients of the vegetarian and vegan tradition such as seitan and tofu. A few drops of balsamic vinegar on these dishes adds a touch of flavor that satisfies the palate and satisfies that desire for something special, respecting the vegan and vegetarian philosophy.
From appetizers to desserts, grilled vegetables, salads, but also used to prepare glazes or more elaborate dishes such as vegetable pies and pasta dishes made with buckwheat and quinoa. For a quick but rich dish, put together in a sliced avocado bowl, pieces of apple, salad, a legume of your choice , do not forget to add something crunchy like seeds or nuts and complete it with a thread of Balsamic Vinegar of Modena. Very good! The delicate taste of Modena balsamic vinegar enhances the freshness of vegetables and adds that extra touch of flavor that makes this dish healthy and good at the same time.
