Running a restaurant or working as a chef and looking for new and inspiring savory coconut recipes?
One of the reasons we love coconut so much is because of how much it upgrades our baking and cooking repertoire. The flavor of coconut is so versatile. Its nutty flavor can upgrade both sweet and savory dishes and desserts. It’s one of those essential ingredients for any restaurant or cafe, especially as it continues to trend in the American cuisine and palette. Here’s a list of some of our favorite savory recipes that include that delicious coconutty flavor.
Carrot/Squash Coconut Soup
First and foremost, when we add that coconut flavor to any recipe, we start off with our soup recipes. That’s because a vegan coconut milk based soup goes over well every time. We particularly like the way carrot or squash blends with that coconut flavor. Hint, most of the time we add a touch of ginger. Not only for the health benefits, but for its spicy kick. Sprinkle a final touch of shredded coconut flakes and you’ve got yourself a simple, yet delicious vegan appetizer.
Here’s one of our favorite Carrot Coconut Soup Recipes.

Then you can add chili, shallots, garlic, lemongrass, lime zest, turmeric, ginger, cilantro stalks, coriander seed, cardamom, coconut flakes and more of your favorite spices.

Coconut-Crusted Chicken Tenders with Pineapple Mustard
What’s in a name right? Well, this name certainly says it all. This isn’t necessarily your vegan friendly option like the ones above, but you can make this recipe gluten-free. We’re sure many of your customers would appreciate that. And the kids? Well, they might not notice the difference with that pineapple mustard dipping sauce at their fingertips.
This recipe includes some key ingredients like, cornstarch, beaten eggs, and coconut flakes mixed with panko breadcrumbs. If you want to skip out on the breadcrumbs, you should increase those coconut flakes. Then it’s time to fry that coated chicken in hot oil. As far as the sauce is concerned, all it takes is pineapple preserves, Dijon mustard, curry powder, and mayonnaise.
