Norfolk, Va. – With Pesach just around the corner, PETA is sharing a roundup of our favorite vegan recipes that are kosher for Passover and kind to animals year round. From egg-free matzah balls and potato kugel to gefilte “fish” and mushroom chopped “liver,” each of PETA’s picks will have you saying, “Good yum tov!”
Looking to host an animal-friendly Seder? PETA’s tips include swapping a red beet for a shank bone and an avocado for a hard-boiled egg, to accommodate the rapidly growing number of vegans within the Jewish community and in Israel. Each individual saves nearly 200 animals every year by eating vegan, in addition to honoring the mitzvah of tz’ar ba’alei chayim (compassion for animals).
“Going vegan spreads a little light and kindness to other species as we advocate for their much-needed exodus from cruel farms and slaughterhouses,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “PETA’s Jewish staffers invite the rest of the community to pass over the suffering with a healthy, delicious, and compassionate vegan Seder.”
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview. For more information, please visit PETA.org, listen to The PETA Podcast, or follow the group on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.
