Milky Knife, Meaty Pot

You are here:
< Back

Dear Rabbi Simon
I cut onions using a milky vegetable knife and then proceeded to put it in rice in a meaty pot. This knife is used only for vegetables and not milky items. It is currently cooking on the stove top. It will be served with chicken. What do I do?
Thank you

Dear Betzalel
Talk about time-sensitive. You may serve the rice as intended. For future reference, it is useful to maintain a knife for vegetables which is strictly parve and is not even washed with meat or dairy utensils. (Keeping it out of the dishwasher helps keep it sharp as well, as the high temperature can affect the acuity of the blade.)
Bon appetit

Ask the Rabbi: Quinoa on Pesach
Dear Rabbi Simon,
Where do you stand on quinoa (and the kitniyot ban) for Pesach?
Many thanks,
Dear Tzippy,
In line with other American authorities, I am in favour of quinoa. Although I reject completely the voices (mostly from Israel) seeking to abolish the ban on kitniyot entirely, IMO we do not need to include in the prohibition pseudo-grains that were unknown in the Old World until modern times. Best to buy with a Pesach hechsher though, to be free of any possible wheat contamination.
Rabbi Rashi Simon
