14 Passover Recipes For The Vegetarians At Your Table

04/05/2017 04:09 EDT

As Passover 2017 nears (this year, the holiday starts at sundown on April 10 and continues for a week), kitchens are being cleaned, bread is being thrown out, and menus are being prepped for the Seders, the traditional meals held on the first two nights of the holiday. But for the many people who will be hosting vegetarians at their homes this year, the question remains — what am I possibly going to make for them?

Fortunately, thanks to the Internet, there are plenty of answers. Though brisket can often be the centrepiece during the so-called Festival of Unleavened Bread, those supporting side dishes on the table can easily become more than a meal for those who don't eat meat. And let us just say, considering matzo's, um, unfortunate side effects, it's not the worst idea for everyone to incorporate more vegetables into their lives during Passover.

Check out these delicious recipes for Passover that will be perfect for vegetarians, and everyone else, around the table.
