Pesach 2014– What to make!

Pesach is quickly approaching!

Here are five tasty look­ing recipes that I am excited to make for Passover this year. Whether you are hav­ing a fully vegan seder (kudos to you if you are!!!!!) or are bring­ing a dish to a large gath­er­ing, you want to impress. These recipes might just do the trick. Let me know which ones are your favourites!

1. The Best Shred­ded Kale Salad. This is EXTREMELY tasty. I’ve made this for lunch quite a few times and I can never just eat one bowl. So you might want to dou­ble the recipe. It’s that good.

2. Per­haps this Por­to­bello, Spinach, and Potato Matzo Mina with Basil Wal­nut Pesto and a Cashew Béchamel Sauce will float your boat.

 3. Or how about a sim­ple, gorgeous-looking, Roasted Beet Salad with Mint.

Oy Vegan Top 5 Passover Recipes!

Revving up for Pesach and not sure what to bring to the big fam­ily din­ner? Here are 5 vegan items that are sure to impress everyone!

1. Obvi­ously, one needs a good Matzo Ball Soup recipe. Per­son­ally, I make a really tasty veg­gie soup with dill and pars­ley and I make matzo balls using tofu as the binder. I also add nutri­tional yeast for extra health ben­e­fits.  That being said, there are many vegan recipes online. Here are a few that are super tasty!

Check out: Bon­zai Aphrodite’s recipe, The Vegan Stoner’s recipe, and Vir­tu­ally Vegan Mama’s recipe.

2. This may sound cray cray, but I’m excited to try this recipe out today! Check out the “V’ word’s recipe for vegan Gifilte fish!

3. A lit­tle birdie told me that quinoa is kosher for passover, whether you’re Ashke­nazi or Sephardic! Nava Atlas has a tasty recipe for quinoa pilaf that is sure to impress.

4. Chef Chloe does it again with her vegan ren­di­tion of every Jew­ish person’s favourite Passover break­fast item: Matzo Brei!

5. Last but not least, this recipe for sweet potato kugel is scrump­tious, healthy and packed with flavour, unlike many a kugel I’ve had in my day. Here is the Veg­e­tar­ian Resource Group’s recipe. There are a few other passover friendly recipes on their site as well.

Wish­ing every­one a happy passover and enjoy your seders!

I leave you with this: Shalom Sesame’s Les Matzarables!

Happy Passover!

Next year in Jerusalem!

Wow! Writ­ing just under the wire here. I’ve been cook­ing all day! What’s for din­ner tonight?

Vegan Mat­zoh Ball Soup and an Egg­plant Potato Torta.

Both the recipes I’m using are from Robin Robertson’s Party Vegan. An awe­some party themed vegan cook­book that I highly recommend.

If you’re won­der­ing how to veggie-fy your seder plate take a look at this arti­cle by Veg­News!

At this time of year, we think about free­dom and reflect on what it really means. I am so thank­ful for the free­dom that I was born into and over the next few days, I hope to really think about what I’m going to do with it in the future.

From every­one here at Oy Vegan, Chag Sameach to you and yours!
