As the mooncake festival approaches, vegans may be wondering how they can participate. Never fear, there are plenty of vegan mooncake options out there!

Traditional mooncakes are made with a filling of lotus seed paste and salted egg yolk, but vegan mooncakes swap out the egg yolk for a variety of different fillings.

Common vegan mooncake fillings include red bean paste, black sesame paste, and jujube paste. Vegan mooncakes can be found at many Chinese bakeries, as well as some specialty vegan bakeries.

If you’re having trouble finding them, you can also make your own vegan mooncakes at home.

How To Make Vegan Mooncake 

There are a few key things to keep in mind when making vegan mooncakes. First, it is important to use non-dairy milk such as almond or soy milk in place of dairy milk.

Second, make sure to use vegan margarine or oil in the dough recipe. And finally, be sure to purchase vegan lotus seed paste or make your own using mashed cooked lotus seeds, sugar, and water.
