Looking Back to Some of our Favorite Passover Recipes

Are your plans and menus all lined up for Passover? Me neither!

If you need some help with ideas, we’re looking back at some of our favorite recipes from Passovers past. We have lots more, though, so don’t forget to go to our HOLIDAY tab on the home page and scroll to PASSOVER for all of your eight days of kosher for Passover celebrations.

If you think that Passover breakfasts are tough to get creative with, we agree. That’s why we rounded up 30 plus recipes in one of our most popular posts EVER.

We’re talking crepes and pancakes, out-of-the-box matzah brie, shakshuka loaded with greens and plenty of treats for those who lean into sweets before 8 AM.

One year we did a deep dive into everyone’s favorite symbol on the seder plate. We chose 8 charoset recipes from some of our favorite chefs and bloggers. The variations were so wide and the recipes’ roots so far flung, that we’re convinced that you should start treating them as chutneys so you can enjoy them all year.

Thinking about easy to pack lunches and filling dinners, we’re as crazy about quinoa as the next family. Among our favorite quinoa dishes is Whitney Fisch’s gluten-free recipe for Spaghetti Squash with Quinoa Meatballs.

We also love this Quinoa Salad with Early Spring Vegetables for an easy dairy lunch.

And on the subject of lightening up (no need to discuss “matzah belly”, right?) we’ve loaded our Passover section with plenty of nutritious and simple creations like this Orange and Fennel Salad.

For more veggies, we also suggest you try this creamy, vegan asparagus soup.

Passover is not a season of abstinence, by any stretch. So to cap off some of our meals we celebrate with a range of desserts from slivered almond brittle to addictive chocolate matzah bark, cakes and moist chocolate dipped macaroons like these.

And we’re wondering… what are you adding that’s new to your seders this year? Adding any new dishes? New guests? New ways to bring the exodus story to life?

I purchased vibrant headbands with images of the 10 plagues on them. Let’s see how my favorite two year old feels about those!

Wishing you all a healthy, joyful, and meaningful Passover holiday.
