Extreme Makeover Vegan: Słodkich i pikantnych Hamentashen Edition

To Purim i chociaż jestem prowokowanych pieczenia, Postanowiłem spróbować i zrobić Hamentashen. I to nie byle Hamentashen: Wegańskie i bezglutenowe Hamentashen.

Purim zawsze było moje ulubione święto żydowskie. To jeden z niewielu szczęśliwych świąt i jak pamiętam, the only one where you get to sit in the synagogue and make noise – stamp your feet and play with graggers (noisemakers).

When I was a little girl, I used to love when Purim came along. Not just because I got to be loud in shul but because Purim is like the Jewish version of Halloween. In school, we would dress up in costumes and act out the Book of Esther (Megillah) and how she saved the Jews from persecution.

I always wanted to be Queen Esther but for some reason, the teachers always chose a blond girl for that. Maybe because the graggers we had showed Esther as a blond and Vashti as a brunette, Nie wiem. The brunettes ended up being Queen Vashti, their dark tresses flowing as they were beheaded. Hmph!

Telling us that Purim was the Jewish version of Halloween turned out to be a big mistake on the teacher’s part, jednak. Imagine my embarassment and confusion as I rang people’s doorbells in our South Bronx apartment building, dressed in costume, asking for treats….IN MARCH!!!! I recall neighbors asking me why I was “trick-or-treating” in March instead of October and their befuddled looks as I tried to explain Purim to them. They probably suggested to my parents that I get some help.

Jak mam starszych, I not only stopped “trick-or-treating” in March but I understood the Story of Esther from a more feminist perspective. We were always taught that Queen Vashti was bad, that she was wrong, that she was defiant. In actuality, she was a feminist, a strong woman who refused to be told what to do, who refused to let her husband pass her around to his friends as entertainment and she died for it. Vashti became my brunette hero.

And while Esther did save the Jews, she did it using her feminine wiles. Isn’t that what we criticize PETA for – using women as sexualized objects to help save animals? She’s still a hero but it’s a little more complicated now; a little more confusing than “trick-or-treating” in March.

“Toaleta Estery” przez Théodore Chassériau

W każdym razie, I read a great article on Shalom Veg, Grupa internetowy dla wegetarian żydowskich, weganie i obrońcy praw zwierząt, zwany “Purim – What are We Blotting Out?” The article states, “Nakazano w Purim spróbować zetrzeć zło w naszym świecie. Ale powiedziano nam, że musimy najpierw usłyszeć, rozpoznawać i pamiętać, zło. To do nas należy dokonać świadomego wyboru, aby zwrócić uwagę i to, co wiemy, jest prawo, do rodzaju wzajemnie, i co w naszej mocy, aby przynieść uzdrowienie zamiast bólu na świecie.”

What a wonderful message. And it just so happens that this year Purim falls on the same day as Meatout Day and the first day of Spring. What a great way to celebrate Purim…a new beginning by going Vegan!

Back to the Hamentashen. Anyone who knows me knows that I don’t like sweets. I was making the Hamentashen for Tom and just to see if I could but what about me? Wtedy pomyślałem, why can’t I make savory Hamentashen? They would be like calzones but smaller. So I adapted the recipe by removing the sugar and adding some Italian spices. I made a sauteed mushroom and vegan feta cheese mixture that I love. Wtedy pomyślałem, why not pizza? Ostatecznie, I am half-Italian so I whipped up a super-fast marinara sauce and got out my Daiya mozzarella cheese. This way Tom and I were both happy.

Since I’m so bad with dough, my Hamentanshen didn’t come out looking so great.

W rzeczywistości, if Haman’s hat had looked like my Hamentashen, he would have been laughed at and run out of Persia before he even got a chance to start trouble. But they tasted delicious and that’s what really matters, prawo? Prawo.

Here are the recipes for both the sweet and the savory Hamentashen and the fillings. Make either one you like or both. Just don’t get dressed up in costume and go door-to-door unless you live in a very observant Jewish neighborhood 🙂

Szczęśliwy Purim, Happy Meatout Day and Happy Spring!!!

    We also make savory hamentaschen at our house. We call them “pizzataschen”i “nachotaschen”. Pizza taschen are like the ones you describe here and we also make some with salsa and cheddar. We have an entire meal of little bite sized hamentaschen. We also serve Doritos and tortilla chips for their triangular shapes as well. Lotta fun!
