@ BARBARAANN1282 - Challah is traditionally a Jewish Egg Bread that is made on Thursday - the day before the Sabbath. One loaf is made for the baker and one for a friend if a small batch is made. The braids can be in a long loaf or a round shape.

To make it vegan I use Ener-G egg replacer.

I thought I use to eat it as a chili, but seems like some beans are missing. I didn't use the cheese either. Will have to look in my archives.

Thanks for the recipe for Sweet Vegan Challah. It looks yummy and I plan to make it this afternoon. emoticon
@ BARBARAANN1282 - I have never heard of meat in challah and I have been making different challah recipes for decades. Unless you are talking about the eggs and egg wash in traditional recipes. I replace those with an egg replacer.

sweet vegan challah ( theres is a picture if you go to the website) I have never made it but it looks really good.

What you need:
1 package (2 1/4 teaspoons) dry yeast
1 cup warm water
3 to 4 tablespoons agave or maple syrup
3 tablespoons vegan butter, melted and cooled
1 teaspoon salt
egg replacer for 1 egg
(I use ener-g egg replacer; you could also use 1 tablespoon flax mixed with 3 tablespoons water)
2 cups unbleached bread flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
nonstick spray

1. Dissolve yeast in the warm water in a large bowl; stir in agave. Let stand for 5 to 10 minutes. Add melted vegan butter, salt, and egg replacer; stir well with a whisk. Lightly sift flours with a fork to break up any lumps. Add 2 3/4 cups flour mix to yeast mixture, and stir until a soft dough forms. Cover and let stand for 15 minutes.
2. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead until smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes. Add remaining flour, 1 tablespoon at a time, to prevent dough from sticking to hands. Dough will be very soft. Place dough in a large bowl coated with cooking spray, turning to coat top.
3. Cover and let rise in a warm place (85f), free from drafts, 40 minutes or until doubled in size. To check if dough is ready, gently press two fingers into dough. If indentation remains, the dough has risen enough. Punch dough down. Shape dough into a ball; return to bowl. Cover and let rise an additional 40 minutes or until doubled in size.
4. Punch dough down; cover and let rest 15 minutes. Divide dough into 3 equal portions. Working with 1 portion at a time, on a lightly floured surface, roll each portion into a 25" rope with slightly tapered ends. Place ropes lengthwise on a large baking sheet, pinch ends together to seal. Braid ropes; pinch loose ends to seal.
5. Cover and let rise 25 minutes or until almost doubled in size. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Bake for 30 minutes or until bread sounds hollow until when lightly tapped, let cool for 20 minutes and then dig in!
Source of recipe: I adapted this recipe from one I found in cooking light, took a bit of tinkering but I think I finally got it right! Enjoy!

here is a good one from weight watchers. You can't even tell it doesn't have meat. I also think I used 1 packet of ranch dressing mix.

1 tsp canola oil
1 clove(s) (medium) garlic clove(s), minced
14 1/2 oz stewed tomato(es)
15 oz canned kidney beans, rinsed and drained
15 1/4 oz canned yellow corn, drained
15 oz canned tomato sauce
1 Tbsp chili powder
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 cup(s) dehydrated onion flakes
1/4 tsp black pepper
4 Tbsp low fat shredded cheddar cheese, sharp-variety
