Vegan Recipe: Lentils and beans in honor of Soviet vegetarians

 

When I was preparing to make kulich for a previous blog, I spent days talking to everyone I met about making kulich, naturally. My obsessions have to be everyone else’s too, don’t they?
One of the girls I spoke to said she was a vegan, and was going to make vegan kulich. It didn’t strike me as too unusual, but then it occurred to me that a big part of kulich being so special is that is has all the things you weren’t allowed to have in the long period of Lent – eggs, milk and butter.
