Quinoa I have enjoyed quinoa at Passover for over 10 years. When I found out that it is also high in protein and other good stuff, I have been eating it year round for over 5 ! However, we received notice recently that quinoa is now NOT recommended for Passover use unless it is from only Bolivia, and that it is checked before Passover. This was stated by several kashrus organizations. Before you purchase/eat it, I'd ask LYOR. Reply

Insulin does not need to be kosher-- and there is nothing non- kosher in it---it is made today in labs and not from animals---even when it was made from pig it was allowed by all Rabbis---today we no longer have that problem

more really vegetarian, please I'm in agreement with Anonymous - having eggs or chicken/meat in the recipes isn't enough of a change to make it healthy. We use quinoa as our mainstay, but I am always looking for more creative ways to cook it. And of course, using vegetables in more elaborate dishes. Hope Nechama Cohen will do further exploring along those lines and share the results with us. Reply

Veggie Lentils and rice, and soy are permitted in many Sephardic communities. However Ashkenazi do not eat kitniyot. Generally speaking, kitniyot are small fleshless seeds of annual plants that can be ground into flour. This includes soy, rice, lentils among others and their derivatives in other products Reply

EnLITEned Vegetarian I agree with the wonderful ideas posted above for vegetarian dishes---I think that people mostly just get frightened and overwhelmed with the challenge---but we were endowed with an abundance of magnificent vegetables and let us not forget that today we have Qinuoa as well---keep in mind that it is very high in protien but in carbs as well---many vegetarians will eat organic eggs which gives the possibility of preparing wonderful filled blintes and "luckshin" accompaniement to soups---the name of the game is preperation and keeping cool

vegetarian passover meal Several years ago my brother, a vegan, joined us for pesach. Our joy to have him was challenged by feeding him according to pesach rules and his complete vegetarian diet. I made a very substantial eggplant ratatouille with tomatoes, onions,peppers, zuchinni, eggplant, garlic and many spices. I also made grilled marinated portobello mushrooms and mushrooms stuffed with farfel and spinach, well seasoned. And a vegetarian tzimmes made with sweet potatos, carrots, prunes and dried fruit. My many other guests had a hard time deciding what to eat- the main meat courses or my brother's lovely dishes!!! Reply

passover recipes i was really hoping to see at least 1 main course type vegetarian meal. Passover presents a special challenge to vegetarians, ie those of us who do not eat any type of meat or fish or eggs. our main sources of protein, ie tofu and beans are off limits at passover. Reply

sugar substitute another substitute for sugar is called stevia - it is the leaves of a plant, and are naturally sweet, very good for you. It is ground into a white powder, and it has fibre. You can find it at most stores. Reply


SUGAR its prolong use is injurous to health Reply

Re: Sugar Substitutes Yes, agave nectar and brown rice syrup might be "better" overall for most people. However, there are people who are very sensitive to sweet tasting food and one taste of more intense sweetness (like agave nectar or brown rice syrup) will set up sweet cravings in those people. I have found that people who are very sensitive to sweet tastes do quite well on fruit sweetened food. Reply

Sugar Subsitute. There are some other healthy, natural sugar subsitutes I like to use:

I like agave nectar, which comes from the nectar of a cactus and tastes like honey. It has very little impact on blood glucose levels and therefore may be good for those on a low carb or diabetic diet. Ask your doctor.

Brown Rice Syrup is also an option. It has a carmel flavor and is a complex carbohydrate.

You can find these at health-food stores. Reply

a treasure of parve baking As the author has mentioned, another idea is to concentrate more on baking with oil. One excellent resource is "Jewish Holiday Baking," by Marcy Goldman, a Montreal kosher pastry chef who writes books. She provides some superb excellent, oil-based cakes and cookies in her book, which is available in public libraries. Reply

baking with Smart Balance Thanks to the author for further information re: Smart Balance. Yes, baking - at least cookies - works very well with Smart Balance - and it also works for icings traditionally made with buttercream. Reply
