Veganism is flying high (no put intended) this month as Dubai-based airline Emirates is celebrating Veganuary – a worldwide movement to encourage veganism – with new plant-based dishes.

While vegan meals can already be pre-booked on all flights and classes, Emirates is including a plant-based dish on its standard menu in First and Business Class menus on flights from Dubai to USA, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and Addis Ababa.

And due to popular demand, a special vegan option will also be available on Economy flights to Addis Ababa in Ethiopia.

Last year, Emirates served 345,000 special plant-based meals on board and the airline already has more than 170 vegan recipes.

The new and delicious-sounding dishes include a spiced tofu and vegetable stir fry with steamed wild rice and tandoori broccolini, shitake mushroom ravioli with coriander pesto and edamame, a spiced vegan stew with peppers and beans served with corn cakes, chimichurri and tofu aioli, and an Ethiopian-style spicy red lentil stew served with sautéed spinach, spiced potatoes and carrots.

The menus have been designed by a team of chefs and nutritionists and come complete with vegan desserts and even vegan cheese.

Whether you’re an established vegan or experimenting with Veganuary, you certainly won’t go hungry if traveling this month.

Bring on the vegan cheese, we say.
