Kosher Crustless Artichoke Quiche Recipe
When considering what is kosher and what is not kosher in the vegetable world fresh vegetables, in their natural unprocessed state, are considered kosher. However, once a vegetable (or fruit or grain) is combined with a dairy or meat product it becomes considered as a dairy or meat product.
When it comes to processed vegetables, either canned or frozen, it becomes a different matter. When they go through the processing stage many times they have a meat or daiy product added to it. Or they may have been processed in vessels that have been used for unkosher products. So you can see where there might be a question. If unsure, the safest decision is to not eat the product.
Another thing that may make a difference in whether you use the vegetable or no is the matter of insects. There is a very strict rule against eating insects, especially if they can be seen by the naked eye. Of course, I don't believe you would want to eat an insect anyway but you can see how this would effect the outcome of the vegetables. You must very carefully check and clean your fresh vegetable before trying to cook or serve.
