Vegan Shabbat meals & dishes

AdinaA | Sep 28, 2012 12:50 PM

I sometimes need to produce a vegan meal, or add vegan options to a meat meal.

I look for dishes that are good enough to tempt not merely carnivores, but even foodies.

So, I'm starting this thread and when I find a good one, I'll add it.

This Roasted Eggplant With Spiced Chickpeas form the NYTimes is not only wonderful, it is wonderful at room temperature. Nice for Shabbat lunch.

The eggplant part if very traditional, i.e. drenched in olive oil. Vegans often need or can afford the calories. The chick pea filling uses only a bit of oil.

I think it would look pretty with eggplant rounds placed at the rim of a platter, and the chickpea filling piled n the center. And work better with the eggplant-o-phobes at the table.
