Delicious and Easy Pareve Salmon Quiche
with creamy dill sauce
This economical, easy make ahead Pareve Salmon Quiche recipe was inspired by one of my testers and a most creative cook who served us her delicious version on Sukkos.
Rifki helped spark the idea for this book. The wife of an engaging rebbe and daughter of a well known outreach rabbi, I was surprised when she confided that she felt something missing in the routine of life. She generally enjoyed the creativity in her daily task of cooking, but often longed for deeper motivation.
She confirmed my suspicion that women long to connect to the holiness in homemaking. We know something more is hiding just behind the veil of recipes, pots and presentation; and we want to cook...for the King.

1 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup water
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 cup fresh or frozen dill, chopped or 1 tablespoon dried

3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
6 eggs, beaten
1 tablespoon olive oil
10 shallots or 2 onions to equal 1 cup, chopped
