Shavuos- Napoleans

Napoleans can be made into eggless, dairy free Shavuos desserts!
Non-dairy napoleans can be made with pareve graham crackers or puff pastry. If you're avoiding gluten look for gluten free graham crackers. Graham crackers can be honey, cinnamon, or chocolate. Cream layers in between can be made with soy milk, rice milk, or rich's non-dairy whip. Add vanilla instant pudding mix to flavor the custard or cocoa and sugar for chocolatey layers.The napoleans above were made with pareve chocolate graham crackers and a chocolate "cheesecake filling" (rich's whip, tofutti sour cream, vanilla instant pudding mix, and pareve chocolate frosting).

Shavuos- Dairy Free Lasagne

If you can't serve dairy for Shavuos try serving dairy style! Lasagne is a great example. You can layer Lasagne with marinara sauce and vegetables or sauteed beef and onions. Frozen spinach and broccoli work especially well in lasagne. Preparation is easy.Simply cook lasgne noodles and set aside. Layer 3 noodles, desired filling, and sauce and repeat several times till a 9x13 pan is filled. Cover tightly and bake at 350 for 30 minutes.

Counting Up to Shavuos

The lofty holiday of Shavuos is approaching. Having food allergies doesn't have to stand in the way of having delicious Yom Tov meals. I like to make dairy style foods (foods that aren't dairy but look and taste as if they are). Some examples are vegetable lasagne, caesar salad, broccoli quiche, and pareve cheesecake.
