Easy Vegan Shakshouka

I tried vegan Shakshouka during a recent visit to Tel Aviv and it was delicious. This simplified plant-based version of the original is a perfect side or breakfast dish.

Smashed Rosemary Potatoes With Sour Cream & Stewed Apples

Regardless of whether you celebrate Hanukkah, potato pancakes are a December staple. These smashed potatoes are a fun, simplified twist on the potato pancake, complete with its classic toppings. Tangy sour cream and sweet stewed apples pair perfectly with the crispy outsides and steamy hot potato-y goodness inside.

Balsamic Cabbage “Steaks”

Think cabbage is a boring veggie? Think again! I dare you not to be impressed and intrigued by the vibrant color of these “steaks,” which look dazzling on your plate no matter what you serve them with—I recommend Smashed Rosemary Potatoes with Sour Cream and Stewed Apples or your favorite grain.

Oil-Free Baba Ganoush

If you’re like most plant-based Epicureans, you probably have a thing for hummus. I do! But there are plenty of other Mediterranean dips that are just as wonderful. This oil-free baba ganoush is a thick & creamy roasted eggplant dip that's the perfect accompaniment to sliced raw veggies.

Portobello Pot Roast

This hearty, delicious pot roast replaces beef with portobello mushrooms but requires no sacrifice of flavor. As rich as any traditional pot roast but twice as fast to cook, this one-pot meal will satisfy everyone at the holiday table.

Sweet & Spiced Noodle Kugel

Noodle kugel is a traditional Jewish sweet or savory casserole made with noodles. This sweet kugel has the perfect blend of fruits and spices and can be served warm or cold. While traditionally served as a side dish, try serving as a dessert with a scoop of plant-based vanilla ice cream on the side or even as a breakfast treat.

Potato Carrot Latkes

Classic potato latkes are fried. This oil-free vegan latkes recipe is a healthy take on a classic Jewish tradition. Shredded potatoes, carrots, and onions come together with flax seeds and oats that serve as a healthy binder. Serve these for Hanukkah or enjoy as a tasty appetizer at any party.

Challah Bread

Challah is braided bread served on the Sabbath and Jewish holidays. Chickpea flour has an egg-like flavor and makes this conventional egg bread taste more authentic. All I can say is challah-lujah!

Instant Pot Risotto With Kale

You can still enjoy a comforting, silky risotto on a whole food, plant-based diet. This risotto is creamy and delicious, and gives you another way to get greens into your diet. I have also included stove top directions for those who don't have an Instant Pot.
