Friends have been talking about doing a recipe swap for Passover, so I thought I’d gather the recipes I made last year all in one spot. Here’s what I posted for Passover 2008:
- Inca Red Quinoa with Roasted Vegetables & Swiss Chard: Delicious and beautiful, I’d make this again.
- Cauliflower Kugel: Homey and easy.
- Quinoa Pudding: Came out grassy-tasting, but I’d be willing to give it another shot.
- Passover Rolls: My mom’s recipe, and a staple for the boys. Like a baked matzah ball.
- Passover Stuffed Peppers: Based on J.’s grandpa’s recipe, a hearty veggie side or as a main meal.
- Passover Viennese Crunch Marble Cake: Just a doctored cake mix, but yummy none the less.
Selected recipes I’ve made at other times that would also be good for the holiday:
- Quinoa with Mushrooms & Onions: A riff on traditional mushrooms & barley.
- Lemon-Roasted Chicken: Use bone-in pieces or cutlets, this is easy and delicious.
- Chicken Soup: Based on GG’s recipe, this is a classic Jewish chicken soup.
- Poppy’s Borscht: But no black bread during Passover!
And finally, here are two recipes I know I’ll be trying this year for the first time:
- Damp Apple and Almond Cake: I’ll make this for the second seder — it uses almond flour instead of wheat.
- Savory Noodle Kugel: Using Pesadich noodles, which should be decent as an ingredient if not as a bowl of pasta.
