New York Times Gets the Scoop on Vegan Passover

The newspaper examines meat- and dairy-free options for the Jewish holiday.

Passover is steeped in traditional foods and can be particularly daunting for those with plant-based diets due to the holiday’s myriad restrictions, which include grains, beans, and corn. The New York Times recently interviewed vegan Jews to find out how they navigate the sacred holiday. Mayim Bialik from The Big Bang Theory told the news source that during the Seder meal, she replaces the symbolic lamb shank bone and hard-boiled egg with a roasted beet and an egg-shaped musical shaker for her children. To circumnavigate the bean and rice restriction, the Times notes that quinoa is usually implemented, whereas matzo balls, which usually use egg as a binding agent, still pose a challenge.
