6 Hanukkah Recipes Made Vegan

Happy Hanukkah or even better, Happy Thanksgivukkah!! Hanukkah or Chanukah, also known as the Festival of Lights, is a Jewish holiday that “commemorates the rededication during the second century B.C. of the Second Temple in Jerusalem, where according to legend Jews had risen up against their Greek-Syrian oppressors in the Maccabean Revolt.” The lighting of the menorah, a nine branched candle stand, is a tradition in this eight-day celebration. Every night during Hanukkah, another candle is added to the menorah. The ninth candle is used to light the other candles. The menorah is a symbol and reminder of the Hanukkah miracle and prayers are usually said during the lighting of it.

For the first time since 1888, the Jewish holiday of Hanukkahwill be celebrated on Thanksgiving Day. The hybrid holiday has been dubbed Thanksgivukkah.

In honor of Thanksgivukkah, try these traditional Hanukkah foods with a vegan twist!

Agreed, Barbara D. Not exactly Hanukkah but some interesting recipes. I will pass on the soy but some of the other recipes look tempting.

Couldn't get the link for the hammantschen to work ("Sorry we couldn't find what you are looking for") so I cannot comment on the recipe. However, someone needs to check their calendar. Hammantaschen are traditionally made for Purim, which this year is March 16th. They are NOT a Hannukah treat at all. Would like to see the recipe, however, as I am always looking for a good gluten free recipe. My synagogue's kosher kitchen makes about 1300 hammantaschen each year and we would like to make some for people who are gluten free.
