Baklava is a traditional Middle Eastern dessert made from phyllo dough, nuts and a sweet glaze. For most recipes, the baked good portion calls for butter. And for the sweet glaze, honey is often used. Of course, both of these items could be substituted out – margarine for the butter, perhaps agave or maple syrup for honey (and some sugar). There is a recipe for vegan baklava in The Joy of Vegan Baking (an AWESOME book, by the way). I haven’t tried it yet, but it uses the substitutions I listed above (margarine and agave).
