My Dear Queen Jewess Isa Chandra Moskowitz, any hopes of you writing a vegan Jewish Holiday Cookbook? How happy it would make my heart...and tummy!

that would be awesome!

until then, i really like this cookbook. It's mostly vegan except for some honey, which is easy to sub. http://www.amazon.com/Jewish-Vegetarian ... 0916288439

Arg. I got all excited and thought that this was actual insider information on what Isa's next book is going to be after the pie book comes out!

I think Isa has said in the past that a Jewish vegan cookbook is too narrow of a subject. But she has Jewish recipes scattered throughout her other cookbooks. Several kugels, matzah brei, tsimmes, latkes, matzah ball soup, cholent, knishes. And the cookie dough for the fig not-ins make great hamentashen.

There's also Olive Trees and Honey, though it leans towards Sephardic cooking and has a good deal of eggs in it.

The one thing I'm dying for is a good challah recipe that tastes really rich. The few I've tried haven't measured up.

Molly, have you tried the challah from jewish vegetarian year cookbook? I really liked it and it really reminded me of good non vegan challah. i think i subbed agave for the honey.

It looks pretty similar to other recipes I've tried, though I'll give it a whirl.

yeah, it could also be that i just haven't had non vegan challah in a long time! It's not exactly a revolutionary recipe, but it had a good soft texture with that dark challah crust.

Then again, i think cheezly tastes like non dairy cheese and non vegans think i'm nuts.

To me, challah tastes rich, almost like brioche. And water challah tastes more like sandwich bread. Maybe I should try replacing the oil with EB.

Thanks, ameyfm. I haven't tried that one. I've never seen a challah recipe with baking powder.
