Shalom Plant Based Meal Plan for Hanukkah
By Team Dirty
Dec 9, 2022
Shalom is a plant based meal plan inspired by the eight-day Jewish holiday known as Hanukkah (or Chanukah). This plan features our take on several classics, including latkes, kasha varnishkes, bagels with carrot lox, and challah. Yes, you can cook these Hanukkah-inspired classics without oil, dairy, or animal products. We’ll show you how.
What’s on the gourmet menu this week
Our Vegetable Pot Pie Pasta and Green Salad with Tangy Tahini Dressing flaunts all the savory pot pie flavors you love. This dish offers a delicious mushroom and white bean pot pie filling ladled over pasta with a cheesy toasted crumb topping. Served with a simple green salad, this satisfying meal will spark joy for everyone.
Potato & Zucchini Latkes are traditional Jewish potato pancakes with our Dirty spin. Latkes are commonly served on Hanukkah, but can be enjoyed year-round. Topped with cashew sour cream or applesauce and served with sliced tomatoes and a Balsamic Reduction sauce, you’ll definitely want these on regular rotation.
A bit of work, but so worth it!!! I missed latkes until I tried this amazingness!Plant Fueled Life member
Bagels with Carrot Lox & Schmear and Winter Maple Citrus Fruit Salad are quintessential brunch favorites. Layer your bagels with garlic herb cream cheese, smoky carrot “lox” (#TrustTeamDirty), tomato, onion, lettuce, and capers on a toasted bagel and served with baby kale and fresh fruit salad. This meal does not disappoint!
I’ve made the lox bagels so many times! They are SO good! Better than any restaurant I’ve tried (and I try it every time I see it’s offered)!Plant Fueled Life member
Veggie Lentil Soup and Cashew Sour Cream Cucumber Salad is a simple soup and salad meal that’s deliciously balanced. It works equally well for lunch or dinner.
Kasha Varnishkes feature buckwheat groats, onion, mushrooms, and farfalle pasta. These ingredients combine to make a traditional, comforting, and flavorful Jewish dish. Top with sour cream and serve with a roasted beet side salad with balsamic reduction. Yum.
Don’t miss the Maple Cinnamon Glazed Challah Bread. Our version of this braided bread of Jewish origin is slightly sweet with a yummy maple cinnamon glaze. This bread is as beautiful as it is delicious and can be enjoyed all year.
Loved this! Lightly sweet, filling, and great for holidays!Plant Fueled Life member
