Parve by choice

One of the hottest culinary trends in Israel this past year can be summed up in a word: vegan.

Increasing numbers of Jews and Arabs, religiously observant and secular alike, are abandoning meat and dairy produce and embracing a parve diet of sorts, based largely on vegetables, grains, nuts, fruits and soy products.

The number of vegans in the country has more than sextupled in the past four years, and Israel is touted as second in the Western world, behind the United States, in terms of the percentage of the population opting for exclusively vegetarian cuisine.
