78 lunches & dinners for the 9 Days

By | July 28, 2014

9 days roundup

After spending the entire month of May glued to the calendar, expecting to give birth any minute, June and July zoomed in and zoomed out and I hardly noticed what day it was at all. Now July’s practically over and we’re starting the 9 Days, with the war here in Israel becoming more and more serious. Neighbors, friends, and so many others across the country have been called up, and it just feels plain weird to be all “okay guys I have the most amaaaaaaaaaaaaazing recipes for you for the 9 Days!”

At the same time, we all still need to eat, and this is one of the times during the year that you guys come here the most. What good is a vegetarian blog if it doesn’t help you plan meatless meals, right? So if you’re wondering what to feed yourself and your family when meat is off-limits, here are 78 convenient links (I counted them) all in one handy blog post.

May we merit miracles this Av.
