Vegan Moquequa

Hey lovelies,


welcome to our next “Vegan Wednesday”! :)

From now on there will also be a “Sweet Vegan Sunday”, where I will tell you my favorite recipes for vegan cupcakes, pancakes, chia pudding and so on. Stay tuned and I’m happy to hear any wishes for upcoming posts and recipes.


Today I have something special for you: Vegan Moquequa. It’s a typical dish from Brazil. Commonly it contains also shrimps or fish, but I veganized the recipe a bit for you. ;)


I love it and would say, that it is one my favorite meals ever! It’s so delicious, light and exotic. I cook it every now and then for friends and they all loved it so far. I hope you’ll do so, too.


Now let’s start cooking!



You need (2-3 persons):


Preparation time: around 45 minutes


  • 2-3 medium-large sized ripe tomatoes


  • 1 green and 1 red pepper (paprika)


  • 1 can of coconut milk


  • 2 small red onions


  • 1 package (500 ml) of sieved tomatoes


  • 1 package of coconut flakes


  • salt, pepper and chili


  • 3 cups of brown rice




  1. Boil the brown rice according to the instructions on the package

  3. Preheat some olive or coconut oil in a pan and add the diced the onions

  5. Stir fry the onions for some minutes and cut the peppers and tomatoes into small pieces

  7. Add the peppers and brown them for some minutes, before you add the fresh and sieved tomatoes

  9. Boil it up, add approximately half of the can of coconut milk and season it to taste with pepper, salt and a bit of chili

  11. Last, but not least add the coconut flakes. You can use as much as you want. My tipp: add it slowly, because if you add to much, it will become to thick and sticky. We don’t want that, am I right? ;)


Of course you can also add shrimps or any kind of fish, if you want to. Just add it and boil it up with the tomatoe sauce. To make it even more brazilian you can drink some Caipirinhas next to it! ;)




Thanks for reading and let me know, how you liked it!
