This year, the traditional Passover seder takes place this week (my how time flies) and many a vegan will be celebrating with vegetarian haggadahs, a vegan seder plate and, of course, a sumptious vegan meal, hopefully ending with something as delectable as Hannah Kaminsky’s matzah toffee or even just the paired down, plain chocolate matzoh our own family has tried in recent years.
The absolutely wonderful news is that there is an abundance of mouth-watering vegan recipes available — from both the Sephardic and Ashkenazic traditions — all for the price of a browser visit (and the required ingredients).
In the past, our menus have reflected a blend of both traditions and have included the following:
- Turkish Eggplant Stew
- Sabbath Rice Pilav with Saffron
- Apple and Date Haroset
- Coconut-Lemon-Almond Haroset
- Orange and Olive Salad
- Sauteed Carrots with Almonds
- Vegan Matzoh-Ball Soup
- and, of course, chocolate matzoh
If you have a favorite recipe, haggadah, or blog post on your own seder that you’d like to share, please post in the comments. Our own celebrations (including pictures of some of the above-mentioned recipes) are posted here and here. This year, we’ll probably try Hannah Kaminksy’s matzah toffee and PETA’s Apple-Date Mousse. Chagsameach!
