If you are not familiar with what a rugelach cookie is, when you taste one, you will wonder what is that back note of creaminess that is so surprising in a cookie! Yep, that’s the cream cheese. In these Chocolate Raspberry Rugelach from Gretchen Price, vegan cream cheese mixes with raspberry jam and melted chocolate chips for a creamy, chocolatey, tangy dessert you’ll love.
2. Potato and Onion Kugel with Sauteed Apples

3. Challah Made with Aquafaba

You can’t argue with the facts: challah is pretty darn tasty. It’s a little sweet and it has a beautiful, glossy, glazed top. It is traditionally made with eggs, but this brilliant Challah Made with Aquafaba from Rebecca Coleman swaps eggs for aquafaba (aka, the liquid from a can of chickpeas) and the result is wonderfully fluffy challah. You can also accent it with different flavors; kosher salt, poppy seeds, and sesame seeds are all popular ways to stud the top of your loaf. Serve with dinner or save it to make the best French toast ever.
4. Sweet Potato and Apple Latkes

In this recipe, sweet potato and apple are shredded and combined to form crispy and unique latkes. The latkes are a little sweet and a little tangy from the added onion. They’re perfect when paired with this creamy lemon tahini sauce. These Sweet Potato and Apple Latkes from Maya Popovich can be ready in little to no time, so they also make a fantastic snack! Serve with kale if you’re craving leafy greens on the side.
5. Gefilte ‘Fish’

This Gefilte ‘Fish’ from Rhea Parsons is made with chickpeas and sauteed vegetables. The fish flavor comes from the seasoning – kelp and dulce flakes (if you don’t have both you can just use whichever you have), Old Bay and lemon. This recipe looks just like Gefilte fish, the texture is spot on and has a much yummier version of the original treat.
6. Cauliflower Leek Kugel
