ideas for vegan passover without lentils?

MichelleInSanDiego Mar 10, 2013 10:20 AM

lots of quinoa and mushrooms and onions
someone from the local Va'ad cautioned me against mushrooms that might be grown in chametz

    What about cashew/almond recipes? Check out raw recipes - many are passover friendly.

      This year I have seen Passover "Israeli Couscous" (under the O-U) by Pereg and I think another company makes it too.

        What is it made of? Potato starch?

          I don't have the box here, but it mentioned something about being made in less than 18 minutes, so perhaps it has some kind of flour?

            If it's the Savion, then what the label says is "Made with 18 minute matzoh meal":

            Here's my writeup of this from last year:

          You may want to try using the regular recipes in the books by either Dr.Joel Fuhrman (http://www.drfuhrman.com) or Dr. Neal Barnard (http://nealbarnard.org/). You could substitute quinoa for grains and just avoid the legume recipes (if you don't eat kitnyiot).

            Try grindibg nuts and making a mock meat loaf. I sautee onions, carrots, celery, whatever I have, mixing with ground nuts, mushrooms, a mashed potato, seasonings and a bit of matza meal or other crumbs for binding. Bake in a loaf pan or any pan of choice with a slathering of ketchup or tomto sauce if you prefer. I make this year round, too.
