This vegan chocolate salami is based on a traditional recipe from Portugal, the place where I was born, but it’s without egg and dairy— making this a delicious alternative for vegans!


Units Scale
  • 180 grams biscuits (preferably Marie biscuits)
  • 130 grams cooking chocolate (70% cocoa)
  • 100 grams margarine
  • 40 grams icing sugar (5 tablespoons) + more to sprinkle
  • 20 grams plant-based drink (2 tablespoons)


  1. Crush 180 grams of biscuits into small pieces, for example by putting them in a bag and breaking them up with a rolling pin.
  2. Melt 130 grams of cooking chocolate in a water bath.
  3. Mix in 100 grams of margarine and let it melt.
  4. Mix in 40 grams of icing sugar.
  5. Add 20 grams of plant-based drink and combine.
  6. Add the crushed biscuits and coat well.
  7. Transfer the mixture to the baking paper along its center. Wrap the mixture in the paper, applying some pressure to shape the salami.
  8. Place in the refrigerator until it’s solid (2 to 3 hours should be enough)
  9. Sprinkle with icing sugar before serving (optional).


  • You’re free to include other ingredients besides biscuits, namely pistachio nuts, hazelnuts, almonds, sunflower seeds, or whichever ingredients tickle your fancy. 
  • If you can’t find Marie biscuits (which are really common in Portugal and Spain), you can use rich tea biscuits or shortbread. They should also work very well for this recipe.
  • The total time includes the chill time. It only should take you about 15 minutes to prepare the salami.
