If you’re wondering where to buy vegan Hanukkah gelt, I found a few online resources:  Amazon and No Whey.  These two resources offer Kosher certified parve chocolate coins wrapped in gold or silver foil.  YUM!  It’s so tempting – it’s hard to save enough chocolate to actually play the game!


vegan Hanukkah latkes - learn how to make them

If this is your first Hanukkah celebration as a vegan, not to worry, here’s a vegan latke recipe (egg-free) for you!  We also found an instant latke mix offered by Steit’s.  If you’re pressed for time, you can just add water and egg-replacer to the mix and fry the latkes up in a pan.  Serve with apple sauce and enjoy!

Wishing you a very Happy Hanukkah!
