Overview

Jewish food’s “greatest hits” receive a makeover in the newest recipe collection from the author of the Jewish Food Hero Cookbook and Feeding Women of the Bible, Feeding OurselvesBeyond Chopped Liver: 59 Jewish Recipes Get a Vegan Health Makeover shares new and better ways to enjoy quintessentially Jewish food with delicious, plant-based recipes– from challah to matzo ball soup!

The Jewish recipes in this cookbook are inspired by recipes from Jewish pre-modern Diaspora communities: Ashkenazi, Sephardi, Mizrahi, Beta Israel/Ethiopian and Indian Jewish communities, and from the modern Israel and American Jewish food cultures.

The updates in this collection speak to the Jewish community today, as we seek to honor inherited Jewish food traditions, while living in ways that are healthier for our bodies and our planet.

Offering healthier plant-based and vegan Jewish recipes is author, Kenden Alfond’s way of problem solving and providing resources for the community, so that everyone can share delicious, healthy meals together.

Kenden Alfond is the founder of Jewish Food Hero, the website that nourishes your mind, body, and spirit. She has been a vegan (most of the time) since she was 12 years old after reading a book...more
