Quinoa and nuts are the main ones I can think of.

Would she agree to eat eggs for the week?

Have you asked her what her preferences are? She's probably fine with not having a huge amount of protein for the eight days. Just prepare whatever foods she likes and she can supplement if she wants.

Nope. She is completely vegan. I on the other-hand eat fish & eggs & dairy.

Per Google:

Quote:
Vegetables with the most protein include broccoli, spinach, asparagus, artichokes, potatoes, sweet potatoes and Brussels sprouts.

They contain about 4–5 grams of protein per cooked cup


The article also recommended spirulina. I don't know how it's processed, but maybe worth asking a shaila.

Nuts and nut butters are good. And I just made almond milk for the first time; it was pretty easy.

You're a good mommy.

You may not want to go there and that's ok. But it is not unheard of to get a heter to eat kitniot on Pesach as a vegan.

Going without "protein" for 7 or 8 days isn't going to cause nutritional deficiencies.

I would just make food that feels "hearty" like vegetable stews or cauliflower "steak".

I have a very strict vegan friend who's rabbi gave him a heter to be "Sephardic for Pesach". He ate beans and lentils.

He was always skinny, verging on underweight, so the need for protein was more important for him. If he were a bigger guy, the rabbi probably wouldn't have given the heter, so make sure you ask YLOR before you start planning menus.

thankfully I'm not worried if she will survive, she is an adult

I am just trying to make yom tov festive for her as well

[ps my mama, who should have called her sefardi card a long time ago, said if I buy quinoa she is eating rice]

There are some very festive all vegetable dishes which you can serve - cauliflower steak, for example, is served at some very upscale restaurants now catering to vegan hipsters. :-)

I wouldn't overthink it. Just toss a handful of nuts into salads and veggie stir-fries. Done.

Being vegan is a choice. I assume that it's not religiously or medically required. So, she can choose not to be vegan for the week, or to keep her standards and eat less protein. Either one is fine.

My vegan friends loudly remind me often how there is protein in just about everything that grows. It’s not as bioavailable as in animal sources and you have to eat more of it to get what you want daily. But everything from nuts to broccoli has protein in it. Last I checked these things are klp.
