At the beginning of the spring season, the Passover festival is also celebrated. Therefore, it is one of the favorite holidays for all. People can enjoy the beautiful weather while having Seder meals with their friends and family. During the Passover celebration, Jews retell the Passover story through a Haggadah. Haggadah is a book that describes how to celebrate traditional Seder. Usually, the Passover meals consist of various non-vegetarian items. If you are vegan, then do not need to worry! Here, in this article, we will discuss how to host a vegan Passover Seder. If you are planning to celebrate Passover out of the town, then do not forget to tell your Passover Programs operator to arrange Vegan Seder.

Pay Attention To Seasonal Fruits & Vegetables
You should pay attention to seasonal fruits and vegetables that can take place on the Seder plate. You should add unique and delicious seasonal green items so that your omnivorous friends do not miss the meals. Mouth-watering salads and sides featuring spring vegetables such as green beans, artichokes, peas, and asparagus are some of the wonderful choices for the Seder plate. You can also go for ratatouille or spiralized vegetables on your Seder plate. These are some delicious and beautiful items to add to the table.
Vegan Versions of Traditional Passover Foods
You can make your guest surprised with some upgraded versions of Passover. Organic or plant-based perspective provides a wonderful opportunity to add new traditions to your Passover celebration. Here, I have shared some ideas to swap meals with vegan dishes on the Passover Seder plate. On the Passover Seder night, the Seder plate is a centerpiece. Traditionally, this plate includes six symbolic food items. Some items are edible and some are just for display. Out of these six items, four items are already vegan: charoset, matzah, “marror” or bitter herbs, and “karpas”. Two non-vegan items on the Seder plate are shank bone and hard-boiled egg. These are not edible and you can easily replace them with any other items.
Create a Vegan Seder Plate:
You can easily replace the traditional shank bone with roasted beet to symbolize the mighty arm of God that convinced the Egyptian monarch to free the slaves. Use Avocado seed to replace the hard-boiled eggs to symbolize the second sacrifice offered during the Passover celebration.
Every item on the Seder plate signifies something related to ancient Jews’ hard-work and slavery. Similarly, hard-boiled eggs on the Seder plate signify fertility and renewal. As it represents a new start, therefore, vegan people can also use flowers as a replacement for hard boiled eggs. You can think creatively and add new items as a symbol on the Seder plate.
Revive Old Customs
Most vegan people sit together with their friends and family, but they do not eat food served on the Seder plate. You should remind your friends and family that it is a common ancient tradition to begin the meal with fresh vegetables or kosher food in Jewish Kosher Tours. You can revive the ancient customs by offering a complete vegan crudité platter.
Matzoh of Hope
Do not forget to add “Matzoh of Hope” on your vegan Seder table. The “matzoh” is not just a symbol of hope for all Jews around the whole world, but it is also a symbol of freedom for animals enslaved in factories. You should incorporate “matzoh” that provides that everything will gonna alright. In all festivals and holidays, food is the main focus. But, you should not forget the main objective of these celebrations- connection with family members and enrichment.
