6 Traditional Purim Recipes Made Vegan

Here’s a chance to dust off last year’s Halloween costume from the back of your closet. It’s time for the masquerading, fun, and festivities. It’s Purim, a religious holiday celebrated on the 14th day of the Jewish month of Adar, which usually falls somewhere in March. Purim commemorates the time when the Jewish people in Ancient Persia were saved from near death.

 

The holiday’s origins are told in the biblical Book of Esther, where Esther becomes the rising heroine in this tale. According to the story, the King of Persia, Ahasuerus, sought a beautiful wife for his kingdom and chose Esther, an orphan raised by her uncle/cousin Mordecai, to be queen. During this time, Haman, one of the king’s viziers, rose in power. Haman’s status was able to get people to bow at his feet. However, Mordecai did no such thing and refused.

 

Seeing this refusal, Haman asked the king if he could exterminate all of the Jews in the kingdom, because Mordecai was a Jew. Before the killing started, Mordecai asked Esther to convince the king to not go through with this. Esther fasted for three days before she approached the king and asked him to spare the Jewish people’s lives. He listened and Haman was hanged.

 

Esther, the heroine of the story, ate vegetarian during her stay in the King’s palace in order to remain kosher, and also in preparation for meeting with the king unannounced, so lots of Jewish people eat vegetarian for the day, including beans, lentils, and seeds/nuts.

 

Purim celebrates Esther, Mordecai, and their victory in saving the Jewish people. It’s a day of celebration, food, drink, merriment, and charity. Celebrate Purim with these vegan dishes!
