Vegan Shuba

Vegan Shuba step-by-step recipe |
"This is a vegan version of traditional Russian dish called Herring under a Fur Coat. It is a hearty and delicious salad which is served in every special occasion in Russia. But this time no herring was harmed."

Ingredients Serves 6

  • 1 large beetroot
  • 4 medium potatoes
  • 2 carrots
  • 7 oz/200 ml vegannaise
  • 2 nori sheets
  • 3 pickles
  • Salt to taste


  1. First, prepare the vegetables. Wash the beetroot, potatoes and carrots, place them into a large pan, pour enough water to cover the veggies. Over high heat bring water to a boil, then reduce the heat and cook for 30-40 minutes until the beetroot is completely soft. The carrots require less time, so remove them after 15-20 minutes. Check the doneness with a fork or a knife.

Hello, Mariya! I guess, any seewead would work well. Some people use marinated laminaria in this recipe.
