Generational food

This is a follow-up to this post about how cabbage rolls are inexpensive "peasant food" carried over by immigrants.

Have you ever veganized recipes that your immigrant families have been making for generations?

My family has so many of these and they've been some of the hardest recipes to veganize, but I'm totally determined to do it. Food is immensely important in my family. It connects us through the generations. To my family, it's a way to keep the people who have come before us alive. It's like...making a pot of Lebanese lubyee bi laham might as well be visiting a family member's grave or immortalizing them in a novel or something. It's that important.

Please share! Does your family have any recipes that have been passed down from generation to generation that you've veganized, or would like to?
