With Passover just around the corner, we’ve pulled together a list of 22 delicious vegan Passover recipes to enjoy during this special Jewish holiday. As a vegan, Passover food can be a source of anxiety. We want to make things easier for you!
Luckily, we’ve pulled together a collection of vegan-friendly Passover dishes that will be a welcome part of your Passover meal menu and celebrations. These include classics-turned-plant-based, such as a vegan matzo ball soup, latkes, and kugel, along with many other delights. So, jump right in and enjoy a delicious vegan Passover without sacrificing your traditions!
The first evening of this holiday includes the Seder plate ritual. Usually, this plate is filled with several symbolic dishes, some of which aren’t vegan. However, here are a few ways to replace animal products for a vegan Seder plate.
Charoset: We have several vegan charoset recipes below that are honey-free.
Beitzah: Replace the egg with either avocado, white eggplant, or flower. We use a bottle of JUST egg for ours.
Zeroa: You can replace the lamb shank with roasted red beetroot (whole or chopped). We use a Whimzee dog bone for ours.
This is (arguably) one of the most popular Passover dishes, and now vegans don’t have to miss out. Instead of using chicken and egg products, this recipe is 100% plant-based and vegan and still wonderfully hearty and delicious. It’s a wonderful vegan Passover recipe.
