We see in Vayikra, chapter 11, lists of kosher animals (land, water, and flying), but I don't see any mention of vegetables? Why did the Torah leave out vegetables when it speaks of kashrut?

  • yamin, although you refer to koshering, which usually means the process of rendering an animal carcass kosher, you also refer to lists of animals, and I took your question to be about the latter. That question has been answered already, and you can read answers there. If, on the other hand, you meant to ask about rendering carcasses (or reaped plants) kosher, then please edit the question to clarify the connection to Leviticus 11's lists. – msh210 Apr 4 '16 at 6:04
  • @Yamin, I'm assuming you're the original asker of this question on the cooking site? If so: Thanks for your recent edit, as that edit clarifies your intent in asking this question: you really mean to ask why some animal species but no vegetable species are non-kosher. You should be glad to see the answers at the preexisting question, then. Please edit the question further to distinguish it from that one if your intent isn't the same as that one. – msh210 Apr 4 '16 at 22:56
