Ceviche is a traditional South American seafood dish that has gained international popularity among chefs and diners of many nationalities. It’s made of raw fish cured by citrus (typically lime or lemon juice) and mixed with refreshing produce including tomato, avocado, onion, cilantro, and cucumber, then served chilled or at room temperature. Despite the fact that its main ingredient is fish, ceviche has become a standard menu item in many vegan and vegetarian restaurants – in its plant-based form. From hearts of palm to cauliflower, there’s more than one way to make incredible vegan ceviche. Enjoy these seven stellar vegan ceviche recipes and bookmark them for an easy go-to appetizer.

It’s been noted before, mushrooms are the new meat. Their chewy texture mimics meat while also providing that je ne sais quoi umami flavor. This recipe is particularly tomato-heavy and packs in a decent amount of heat – it’s almost like a mashup between ceviche and salsa. Make sure you have plenty of tortilla chips on hand, because this dip will go fast.

3. Avocado and Citrus Ceviche

Everyone loves avocado, but it’s definitely not the most party-ready food due to its quick oxidization. However, by adding a good amount of citrus, the generous avocado chunks stay gorgeously green in this bright and well-balanced mix. Just be sure you plan ahead – like a good guac, ripe avocados make the meal.

It can be transformed into something truly gourmet – including vegan ceviche.
