The Seder Plate
The traditional Seder plate contains matzo, a lamb shank, a hard-boiled egg, bitter herbs, parsley and charoset (a mixture of chopped nuts, apples, wine, and honey). You can create a vegan Seder plate by substituting roasted asparagus or a roasted beet for the lamb shank and a small white eggplant for the hard-boiled egg. For the charoset, use agave in place of the honey.
