Vegan Holiday Kitchen

By Nava Atlas

Vegan Holiday Kitchen: More than 200 Delicious, Festive Recipes for Special Occasions

This book has creative recipes for vegetables. It features main vegan courses. The Passover section mentions the Kashrut.com article on quinoa, Quonfused about Quinoa as a resource in explaining the usablilty of quinoa for Passover. Unfortunately the the Passover section uses ingredients that are not usable or available certified for Passover including quinoa flakes, frozen artichoke hearts and Daiya Cheese. These recipes can be used the rest of the year.
