14 Plant-Based Passover Menu Ideas

14 Plant-Based Passover Menu Ideas

While many holidays have a way of putting extra pressure on those who follow a whole food, plant-based (WFPB) diet, the annual Jewish observance of Passover may be a special case. It’s not just a matter of finding substitutions for traditional, animal-based foods like meat and eggs. Passover also asks the faithful to abstain from grains, beans, and corn–three important staples for WFPB eaters. On top of that, Passover lasts for eight days!

Fear not—these recipes show that you can keep your commitment to a healthy, plant-based lifestyle and honor your religious values at the same time.
