Are there any common and/or traditional Turkish dishes which are vegan?


1 Answer 1


There's a dish called Yelanchi, which is stuffed grape leaves. I was told Yelanchi comes from Turkish word meaning liar, since ordinarily the (dolma) stuffing would contain meat. However, this variation is vegetarian/vegan and includes rice, herbs and even walnuts in some recipes.

Here is a link to a recipe.
