It’s well documented that vegan lifestyle guru Alicia Silverstone has a fantastic roster of meat-free recipes at her disposal. In addition to her cook/lifestyle book “The Kind Diet,” Silverstone also regularly posts recipes to her website, The Kind Life.

In celebration of the holidays, the Jewish actress is featuring delicious dishes for the eight days of Hanukkah. Today’s featured recipe is vegan challah bread that bakes up in about 40 minutes.

She writes on the website, “In honor of Hanukkah, I’m posting one traditional recipe per day during the holiday, which starts today and ends December 28. I’m kicking off our eight days of recipes with this yum looking challah bread.

“When I was a wee girl at Hebrew school…that’s right, Hebrew school three times a week and Friday night services once a month, I remember the greatest challah bread ever…we made it ourselves, all the little people! It was in the Bay Area, so maybe that’s why the bread was so good (water thing). But I have never met a challah since that was as good as the Temple Beth Jacob challah in San Mateo.”

Here’s hoping that her recommended recipe is just as good. Head over to The Kind Life to find out, and check back each day for more. Wednesday’s featured dish will be homemade apple sauce!
