The Jewish Vegetarian Year Cookbook

 When I received "The Jewish Vegetarian Year Cookbook" from Micah Publications I was a little excited. I have always wanted to try making Jewish food. Like most people, I didn't have a clue where to start. I love that "The Jewish Vegetarian Year Cookbook" has separated the Jewish Holidays and different menu plans for each event. This makes it great if you are Jewish or just want to immerse yourself in another culture for awhile.
THE JEWISH VEGETARIAN YEAR COOKBOOK
by Roberta Kalechofsky and Rosa Rasiel 
illustrations    pbk.    216 pgs

Description

Joyful and practical, combines Jewish holiday traditions with more than 170 innovative, delicious, vegan recipes, notes about each major holiday, prayers, menu suggestions, and a Tu B'Shevat haggadah.
Advice about where to find vegetarian pareve products, how to make tofu delicious, how to store and cook beans and grains, useful addresses and bibliography. 

  As I paged through "The Jewish Vegetarian Year Cookbook" I was amazed at the variety of foods covered in therecipes. After a bit of searching, I decided on "Applesauce Cake" on page 35.

 First off let me tell you that just getting the ingredients together for this one will make you hungry. All the spices blend into an aromatic heavenly scent. Once the ingredients were mixed the kid in me had to try a bit of the batter. This is ok because this is a vegetarian cake so no worries about ingesting raw eggs.. Anyhow the batter is really really good.
They got into it before I could get a pic
 The hour wait while the cake bakes gets harder by the minute because the smell is wonderful. Once cooled enough to eat (ahhmm almost cool enough) we dug right in. This cake is ultra moist and tastes delicious. The spices really come through. Can't wait to try the next recipe.

 Ready to buy? you can head over to Micah Publications and get yourself or a friend a copy of

I have Jewish relatives and I have always wanted to learn how to make blintzes and matzo ball soup. Are those recipes in there?

That cake sounds amazing!
