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.

“Accidental” Turkey Neck Soup without noodles, or sub matzah balls


Creamy, Comforting (Curried) Orange Soup (Pre-made curry mix may be difficult to find with kosher for Pesach supervision. Try seasoning with turmeric, paprika, pepper, and a pinch of cinnamon.)


Light Meals or Snacks:

Charoset-Stuffed Matzah Brei


Fruity Power Breakfast Bowl (Pumpkin seeds and Chia seeds are not kitniyot, but may be difficult to find with Pesach supervision.)

Easy Coconut Macaroons (GF, Passover) (You may use vanilla sugar in place of the vanilla extract.)


Lite Chocolate Ganache (Parve, Vegan)


Winter Fruit Salad with Lemon Coconut Mousse (My favorite brand of coconut cream is certified as kosher for Pesach only for kitniyot-eaters, but other brands may be certified differently.)
