A Very Vegan Passover

It’s Passover and Passover is all about liberation, commemorating when the Israelites were delivered from slavery and persecution in Egypt and it is perhaps the most solemn of the Jewish holidays. When the Israelites fled Egypt, the tale is they left in such a hurry, they had no time for their bread to rise, which is why Jews observe the holiday that marks their emancipation by eating only unleavened bread, a.k.a., matzo, for the duration. The name of the holiday, Passover, or Pesach, refers to the practice of leaving the blood of a sacrificed lamb on doorframes to communicate to God that the people who dwelled there should be spared the plagues he was visiting upon the Egyptians for oppressing the Jews. God would "pass over" their homes. As liberated people, we should not continue the cycle of violence and oppression by violating and oppressing others. Even for those who are not Jewish or religious, a Passover seder can be a very moving experience when we extend our circle of compassion to include the most exploited. Here is a collection of recipes to take you through the Passover holiday, perfect for seders or just at home.
