First, soak matzah in water or red wine (pour one out for my homies) for about 5 minutes. Drain using a colander. Meanwhile, mash bananas and mix with melted coconut oil, cinnamon, vanilla, and a pinch of salt. Carefully mix in drained matzah.

Heat up a non stick skillet over medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon coconut oil and melt. Then add in matzo brei and press down a little. Cook until golden brown on one side, flip, and then cook until golden brown on the other. About 7 minutes total.

  1. sorry but i dont understand in instructions #1 what “pour one out for my homies” means.

  2. So cool that you made Matzo Brei vegan, I wouldn’t have thought it was possible. Looks delish.

  3. Nice doctoring!

  4. I can’t wait to try this! AMAZING!

  5. I don’t think I have ever seen a better looking matzah brei!!

  6. Your matzo brei looks great in the photograph and the recipe looks pretty simple and good to make, hopefully, and I am only wondering if there are any ways to melt chocolate besides the double boiler route for this particular recipe.

    Thank you.

    Stay well and best wishes to you for a liberating and uplifting Pesach!

    • Thanks, Gil! You could use a microwave to melt it, but just melt for about 10 second increments, stir, and microwave again until fully melted. It can burn easily in the microwave.

  7. Im forsure going to try this. I am vegan during the week, and not gonna survive on pesach!

  8. Amazing creativity in Jewr mind! I need to try this. I might use maple syrup although chocolate would be better. Not sure if chocolate is vegan though??

  9. This sounds delicious. i love the use of bananas to replace the eggs!

  10. Very hard to find vegan KFP recipes. Thanks so much for this one!

  11. I found delicious gluten free matzah at Whole Foods so I can do this. Sounds really good!

  12. Hi! Do you think you could skip the coconut oil and just use veggie oil? canola?

    My daughter is allergic to eggs so Passover is a bit of a challenge. This recipe was so fantastic! Thanks!
