Pesach 2017 Round-Up

Pesach, Passover, is the holiday of freedom. Our ancestors were released from bondage in Egypt, and ever since, we slave away cleaning for a month before the holiday. 🙂 When applied to the kitchen, freedom could me explained in more than one way. One the one hand, I could use a break and kind of feel like just throwing some pre-made, processed food on the table and taking a nap. On the other hand, Pesach is a great time to get back to the basics. Mostly gluten-free, except for mstzah, it’s a week that lends itself well to whole foods, clean eating. Free from additives we can’t pronounce. Here’s a summary of all my simple, Pesach-friendly recipes, so you won’t spend the week slaving away in the kitchen. All of these recipes are kitniyot-free.
