I'd be really interested to know how veg*an Jews who keep kosher during Passover manage without all those foods!
I eperimented the last couple of years with making matzoh brei by soaking the matzoh pieces in apple juice before frying them in the pan. It falls apart more than the egg version does, but it was still tasty.Originally Posted by Fromper
So speaking of Pesach, I was grocery shopping today, and I bought my Passover food. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that most of the "Kosher for Passover" snacks seem to be vegan. Unless I'm overlooking something in the weird unreadable ingredients, Ring Jells are vegan!I feel my waist line expanding just from knowing that.
On a related note, does anyone have a vegan version of matzah brei? I'm not vegan, but I'm leaning in that direction. I might break down and buy some cage free eggs just so I can have matzah brei, but I'm willing to experiment with vegan versions, if anyone has one. For me, it doesn't have to be strictly Kosher or strictly vegan, but the closer it is, the better.
