Vegan Hanukkah Recipes

Finding vegan Hanukkah recipes can be challenging… especially when celebrating the holiday around non-vegans.

Whether you’re vegan or looking for egg-free, dairy-free or gluten-free Hanukkah recipes, serving these vegan Hanukkah recipes will please everyone & make your Bubbe proud.


My goal with making vegan Hanukkah recipes is for everyone at the table to enjoy (and when a non-vegan goes “this is vegan?!”, it’s usually a sign that my vegan recipe was delicious!)

Here is a list of all my vegan Hanukkah mains, appetizers, and desserts to make your holidays dairy-free, egg-free, and perfect for any family members with allergies to animal products as well! Enjoy!

Vegan Potato LatkesVegan Latkes (20 mins + Egg-Free) 

This vegan latkes recipe uses the liquid from a can of chickpeas along with flour and baking powder. These crispy fried latkes will taste just like the original recipe, but egg-free. My preference is dipping latkes in apple sauce, comment below if you’re team sour cream or team apple sauce. Get the recipe here!

Vegan Challah Bread RecipeVegan Challah Bread (3.5 hours + Egg-Free) 

This traditional bread is served at Jewish ceremonial occasions such as Shabbat and other holidays. It is shared and enjoyed by many people worldwide. Typically, the bread is made with eggs and honey. In my vegan challah recipe, we use aquafaba and white sugar to recreate the texture and sweetness of traditional Israeli water challah bread! Get the recipe here!

The Most Delicious Hummus (1 hour 25 mins)

Even with the array of dishes you’ll want to prepare for a grand Hanukkah dinner, the hummus should not be something you take the easy route on. Make it the day before or send the recipe to one of the guests to ensure the creamiest hummus makes its way to your meal. Get the recipe here!

Easy Vegan No Knead BreadVegan No-Knead Bread (Gluten-Free option)

While challah is the best bread you could dream of for any Jewish holiday, it is a bit tricky and time-consuming. For an easier bread to serve at your meal, make this simple, no-knead bread the night before and serve it freshly-baked to impress the family without learning to braid any dough. Get the recipe here!

Vegan Smoked SalmonVegan Smoked Salmon | Vegan Lox (10 mins + Gluten-Free)

A classic addition to any elegant party snacks or morning-after brunch, bagels and lox are good at any time of day. Make-ahead to make preparation easy and see if your relatives can tell that this plate of lox has a vegan secret. Get the recipe here!

Tofu Cream CheeseVegan Cream Cheese (7 mins + Gluten-Free)

Whether you’re making a traditional Rugelach recipe and need to add vegan cream cheese to your dough, or you’re making Vegan Lox for the next morning, this vegan cream cheese is a perfect make-ahead ingredient to keep in the fridge for the holidays. Get the recipe here!

Kale Sweet Potato Quinoa SaladKale Sweet Potato Quinoa Salad (30 mins + Gluten-Free)
