None of those is a necessary element in bolognese; find a recipe that doesn't use them (use beef mince, or quorn).

There are many bolognese variations out there, some which have milk in them, but there are many which do not as well. My understanding is that a traditional bolognese does not have milk, but as always with Italian food what's traditional is what Mama makes. In any case, you can drop the milk products without substituting anything for them. I don't think that ...

Sauces like pan sauces and Roux-thickened sauces like bechamel or veloute are not traditionally finished in the same way. Pan sauces, like for steak au poivre involve deglazing, reducing (still primarily water-based liquid,) and either reducing further with heavy cream, or adding cold butter directly and not heating anymore, so it stays emulsified. Roux ...

Yes! I was able to make a panna cotta using this product in a standard recipe with some minor changes. Just incorporate the Jell Dessert powder where the gelatin is called for and subtract 1/4-cup from the prescribed sugar. I started with this recipe on JoyofBaking.com. The recipe, like most I've seen, calls for one standard 1/4-ounce packet of gelatin. ...

Depending on the dish, maybe duck confit. It works really well in tacos. It has the nice unctuous fat and goes well with tomatillo and avocado. But it'd probably be hard or expensive to get in large quantities.

You are not going to find any other meat with quite the same unctuous texture as pulled pork and mild but meaty flavor. Certainly no cut of beef will do so. If you feel compelled to use beef, use the corresponding cut of beef, which is the chuck. It will pull (although a little more shreddy), but it won't have the same texture, and it will have the ...

I'm not expert on Kosher thing, but what about using chicken schmaltz?

Latke translates into 'little oily thing', so really it's anything small and fried. Potatoes are a new world crop, and the celebration of oil as a part of Hanukkah goes back much further. The original latkes were actually made with cheese But most people today associate them with any sort of shredded, fried vegetables. Most anything starchy will work (...

You can either substitute the bechamel or the ragu: Bechamel Use soy or almond milk and vegan butter Ideas: http://www.onegreenplanet.org/vegan-food/how-to-make-classic-sauces-vegan/ https://realfood.tesco.com/recipes/dairy-free-bechamel-sauce.html Ragu Simple.. just use vegetarian mince: https://www.quorn.co.uk/products/meat-free-mince ...

You can use most margarines, which are pareve. Most margarines contain lecithin to emulsify the (vegetable) oils with water to yield a butter-like texture. The lecithin should serve the same purpose as the emulsifiers found in butter. Kosher cooks have long used margarine as a general substitute for butter. I have not tested it in a pan sauce, but I would ...

Those are two different processes. Unfortunately English language don't have two words for the outcome and they are both called "pickles". Usually Polish pickles "kiszony" should be made with: cucumbers, dill, fresh horseradish, garlic and salt. No vinegar. Kosher pickles, called in polish "korniszony", are made with brine that contain vinegar. I assume ...

I'd personally just go with a mushroom ragu. You can find plenty of recipes online, such as from Serious Eats or the New York Times. I can't remember if fish counts as "meat" for Kosher rules, so you may need to avoid recipes that call for fish sauce or Worcestershire sauce.

When I was growing up, my family had a tradition of having bolognese once a week. We liked putting cheese on top and my mother is vegetarian, so for both of these reasons we used soy "mince". I don't know how easy it is for you to find but I often see both dried and "fresh" varieties in my supermarket. It's often sold under the name "textured vegetable ...

In the original italian recipe of "Ragù alla bolognese", pork is optional, there is just beef mince simmered with red wine until reduced, some vegetables (carrot, onion and celery), tomato sauce, and absolutely no compulsory dairy products (cheese is added on personal taste when the dish is served). this one seems perfect, notice: olive oil or butter ...

Milk (and, I guess as an extension, cream and cheese) is included for richness, pork because a mix of pork and beef is somewhat lighter than beef alone, and pancetta for flavour. None of these ingredients is essential and a "basic" Bolognese sauce would work just fine without all of them.

You can use any fat at all in a roux, including animal fats like suet and schmaltz. With a roux, all you're doing is toasting the flour to get rid of the raw flavor, and using the fat to make sure it doesn't clump up. The older, less sophisticated beurre manie technique involves kneading flour into cold butter, throwing knobs of it into your boiling liquid, ...

The great Jewish thinker Maimonides argued that (basically) all the laws of forbidden foods exist for health/scientific/safety reasons, and he laid out the connections. In Guide for the Perplexed 3:48 he writes the following: I maintain that the food which is forbidden by the Law is unwholesome. There is nothing among the forbidden kinds of food whose ...

Regarding halaal meat, the quality varies. In South Africa, particularly the inland provinces, halal beef sold by Muslim-owned butcheries and supermarkets is of relatively poor quality, but due to limited choices, Muslims didn't know any better. In South Africa at least, well-done beef was almost universally consumed by the Muslim community, until recently, ...

The classic substitute is margarine. Most brands are vegan, which would meet your non-dairy /non-meat requirements. As far as taste and mouthfeel goes, I suggest either trying out a few brands or checking some vegan blogs from your country or region, there is a difference between brands but some are reported to be remarkably close - whatever that means.

I have never tried this, but I would expect goat to work well. So I googled and found this blog entry, with a linked pulled pork recipe. It reads like it was successful. I'd be very interested to know if you try it !

As a calf ages and matures into a cow, the structure, texture, and taste of the meat changes. Veal will naturally have a milder flavor and finer texture than beef. The younger the calf, the less developed and dense the muscle structure will be. The less dense the muscle structure is, the more the flavor will penetrate the meat. So, even in the same ...

Using olive oil to brush the turkey is a good kosher substitute (due to the prohibition of eating poultry and dairy together). In general, margarine has been used in the past as a butter substitute, but nowadays, most kosher recipes do not use margarine, which has unhealthful fats. They either use canola, olive or coconut oil in baking. For meats and poultry,...

Oil will work, as will chicken or turkey stock...or even apple cider.

Yes, if you consider some kosher sausage to be a sausage, and therefore a substitute for a non-kosher sausage. No, if you want a sausage which is "like" blood sausage. It's pretty much like itself, and not much else, other than "it's a sausage", in which case, see above.

I've made pulled beef before using beef brisket (same spice rub as pulled pork). It is a little drier than pulled pork but the taste is still great.

I fry up veggie burgers and then dice to resemble the look and texture of ground beef. Worked in my regular lasagna recipe.
