Norfolk, Va – With Passover just around the corner, PETA is encouraging celebrants to replace the animal foods often found on the Seder table with delicious, healthy, and humane vegan dishes, including Matzoh Ball Soup, Gefilte “Fish,” Rainbow Israeli Salad, Chopped “Liver” Spread, Potato Kugels, and, for dessert, decadent Chocolate Matzo Brittle (recipes available here). And in this PETA video, Emmy-nominated comedy writer Carol Leifer offers even more advice on preparing a beautiful Passover table that’s respectful to all.
“Passover celebrates freedom and reminds us to have compassion for others who are oppressed, so it’s only right to keep animals and the products of their suffering off the Seder table by serving flavorful vegan dishes instead,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “PETA’s time-tested vegan recipes are a wonderful resource for anyone looking to help animals, the planet, and their own health.”
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—notes that every person who goes vegan spares more than 100 animals a year daily suffering and a terrifying death in today’s meat, egg, and dairy industries. In addition, a report by the United Nations concluded that a global switch to vegan eating is necessary to combat the worst effects of climate change.
