So you have guests coming for Passover—and let’s face it, things have gotten more complicated over the past 5,000-plus years. Traditional foods like beitzah (a roasted egg) and zeroah (a piece of roasted lamb) will leave the vegan crowd hungry. Even matzo ball soup is made with eggs.

The good news is: With everyone’s dietary habits changing, the seder is rolling with it. Nourish Kitchen + Table, for example, developed a vegan dish that will keep you energized enough to power through the night. This year, the West Village resto created a special crudité platter for a vegetarian spring seder, hosted by Jewish organization Arq.

The dish stars colorful fruits and veggies, served with a showstopping aioli made with buzzy ingredient aquafaba (AKA chickpea water), which ups the protein. It’s more unexpected than hummus, while just as flavorful—and it’s meant for sharing, but so delicious, you might not want to.
