Kosher & Caring: Passover Meal for Vegans

Make some vegan Eggless Matzoh Balls this Passover.

| March/April 2005

Preparing vegan meals ­during Passover makes the observance a Festival of Freedom for all people and animals.

Makes about 14 Matzoh Balls

Vegan matzoh balls are challenging because eggs are the traditional binding ingredient. Vegans usually rely on egg replacer, which is kosher—but not for Passover. The alternative: Bind the mixture with tofu and bake rather than boil the matzoh balls. (Many rabbis accept legumes for Passover when they’re altered from their original form—such as when they’re mashed.)

1/2 cup matzoh meal
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
6 tablespoons water
1/3 cup mashed firm tofu

1. In a medium bowl combine matzoh meal, salt, pepper, and onion powder. Stir to distribute evenly.

2. Add vegetable oil and water and mix well.
