Sure, finding great food to eat during Passover when you’re also a vegan can be a little trying, but it’s not impossible. Here are my three favorite recipes that are kosher for Passover, vegan, and totally delicious. Bon appetit!
1. Mini Potato Kugels – They’re cute, easy to make, and even easier to enjoy.

3. Chocolate Truffle Pie – Hello, it’s chocolate! And utterly to die for.
