Passover Seder, Vegan Style!!

Posted Aug 26 2008 4:23pm
I visited my family this weekend for Passover and contributed a few vegan dishes for our seder, the festive dinner where we tell the story of Passover. The recipes are all from Roberta Kalechofsky's The Vegetarian Pesach Cookbook .

This is the Sweet Potato Orange Pudding, which was good but I found to be too sweet.

This is a Vegetable Nut Loaf. It's time-consuming, with lots of vegetable chopping and peeling, but quite filling. It's a bit dry, like most Passover foods, as real flour can't be used, but it goes well with an apricot marinade.

And now for the best of the three: Multi-National Potato Casserole. It's a dish with a layer of mashed potatoes on the bottom and top, and in the middle a layer of sauteed onions and portobello mushrooms. This came out quite good. The pictures are staggered to show you the different layers.

Finally, what's a meal without dessert? And, better yet, a Passover dessert that doesn't have twelve eggs in it? Can it be done? The answer is a resounding YES! This is the No Bake Chocolate Matzoh Roll. Kind of an interesting concept -- melted chocolate, a little bit of coffee, sugar, margarine, and moist matzah, rolled up with chocolate glaze and strawberries on top. My 92 year-old grandmother, the ultimate food critic, enjoyed it, and I thought it was pretty decent too.

So, that was seder. Proof that you can be vegan and eat well on Passover.
