Alicia Silverstone's Vegan Challah Recipe for Hanukkah
In celebration of Hanukkah, Alicia Silverstone will be posting one yummy vegan recipe a day for 8 days. Enjoy!

Day 1: Vegan Challah

"Happy Hanukkah! 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.

I am curious if this one would be nearly as good…I look forward to hearing what you all think of it! "
