The potluck meal will be vegetarian. Remember it also needs to be Kosher for Passover. Be sure to label your dishes with your name, whether it is vegan or vegetarian and also if your dish is Sephardi or Ashkenazi. (See below). Bring a serving for at least four people.
Potluck requests for last name beginning with:
A through D - Desserts or Charoset [please confirm if you will be bringing charoset]
E through L - Main dishes
M through Q - Hot or cold side dishes
R through S - Kosher wine or grape juice
T through Z - Green salads
It would be helpful to also bring a box of matzah! [let us know, if you can]
With the exception of matzah, matzah meal, etc, do not use anything made from the five grains, (wheat, oats, spelt, barley and rye) such as bread, cakes, biscuits, crackers, cereals, etc., including grain vinegar. And do not use any leavening agents, such as yeast.
In addition to that listed under "Sephardi," we do not use tofu, rice, beans, peas, lentils, corn, millet, or any legumes.
NOTE: Quinoa is permissible in both traditions.
