If you’re Ashkenazi, can you eat riced cauliflower during Pesach?March 9, 2017 5:11 am at 5:11 am #1222998👑RebYidd23Participant
Am I supposed to know what that is?March 9, 2017 7:09 am at 7:09 am #1222999takahmamashParticipant
I believe that “riced cauliflower” is cauliflower that’s been chopped into tiny pieces, similar to rice grains. There is no actual rice in the dish, so it’s safe to use for non-kitniyot eaters. Google “riced cauliflower” for more details.March 9, 2017 11:41 am at 11:41 am #1223000TheGoqParticipant
Its the latest rage of the carb conscience crowd replacing carbs i’ve even seen recipes for making a pizza crust out of it.March 9, 2017 8:42 pm at 8:42 pm #1223001
If you’re Ashkenazi, or look Ashkenazi (lighter skin but your father is Sephardic and you’re Sephardic), are you allowed to eat riced cauliflower in public (Jewish public and/or regular mixed public)?
What if someone thinks chas v’shalom that you’re eating actual rice during Pesach?March 9, 2017 8:49 pm at 8:49 pm #1223002iacisrmmaParticipant
I would eat it. Rice is not chametz.March 9, 2017 8:51 pm at 8:51 pm #1223003
I thought that it was in the kitniyot kategory (KK not to be confused with the one with an extra letter), like peas and kit kat bars?March 9, 2017 8:59 pm at 8:59 pm #1223004iacisrmmaParticipant
LB: CLARIFICATION: I would eat riced cauliflower and if someone else mistakenly thinks its regular rice then he/she will think I am eating kitniyos and not actual chametz.March 9, 2017 10:54 pm at 10:54 pm #1223005
I think the real question here is: If you are Sephardi but look Ashkenazi, can you do something that Sephardim are allowed to do or would it be considered “maris ayin” (the appearance of doing an aveirah even though you’re not).
I can’t imagine it’s a problem since there is no such thing really as “looking Ashkenazi”. There are plenty of Sephardim with light skin and I think people realize that.
However, I could see there being a problem if you follow the Ashkenazi minhagim for some things. I don’t know if it is a problem – you’d have to ask your LOR – but that’s the only situation in which I could see a problem.
But even if that’s the case, in our situation in which you are doing something that is even fine for Ashkenazim, I can’t imagine there’s a problem.March 10, 2017 2:30 am at 2:30 am #1223006
If someone thinks that I am Ashkenazi then I can REPRESENT my Sephardic peeps and show the world that it’s okay to be a Sephardi in an Ashkenazi world 🙂
Okay… that sounded silly.
Anyway, maybe people will be more open-minded about who is what and that’s all okay and from Hashem… if I was more open with being Sephardi.March 10, 2017 2:53 am at 2:53 am #1223007
I have two nephews from (two different) “mixed marriages”. They look nothing alike – one is super-dark and one is super-light. The one who is super-dark happens to be Sephardi and the one who is super-light happens to be Ashkenazi, but it can easily happen the other way.March 10, 2017 2:55 am at 2:55 am #1223008
I’m actually on the darker (more olivey) side but I go to Chabad and I don’t advertise my Sephardiness, unless it’s to point out my kitniyot status.
My sibling is light skinned and light eyed. Our parents are mixed.
Okay now you can pick me out from a crowd.March 10, 2017 2:56 am at 2:56 am #1223009
I have a male relative who is Sephardi and married an Ashkenazi woman.
They have one olive child and one that is super light.
So interesting how that happens 🙂March 10, 2017 3:02 am at 3:02 am #1223010
I think it means the Sephardi must have Ashkenazi blood, because dark skin is usually dominant. My light-skinned nephew from a mixed marriage has an Ashkenazi great-grandfather on the Sephardi side, so I think that’s how that happened.
My dark-skinned nephew is Indian on his father side so I don’t think there is any Ashkenazi blood there. He is very dark, but I don’t think my sister likes it when I call him an Indian and sing “one little, two little, three little Indians” to him.March 10, 2017 3:15 am at 3:15 am #1223011
Lol, I wouldn’t like it eitherMarch 10, 2017 3:19 am at 3:19 am #1223012
Well she did laugh, so maybe she didn’t mind that much. Then again, she laughs a lot, so I’m not sure.March 10, 2017 3:27 am at 3:27 am #1223013
