The food world is finally catching on to what Steve Gold has been saying for years. Horseradish is a superfood. In addition to its incredible earthy and sweet flavor, horseradish is full of health benefits ranging from cancer prevention (horseradish has ten times more cancer-fighting compounds than broccoli!), to respiratory and headache relief. Horseradish has been used for medicinal purposes for years, yet the research on horseradish has become more established and well-known in recent years, while the Gold family has been touting the benefits of horseradish since 1932. Horseradish is creeping up in produce sections throughout the USA, as the demand for horseradish is increasing and will continue to increase in the coming years.

In my mind, Pesach cooking becomes a game of “find the flavor in the veggies.” My favorite method of enhancing the flavor in dishes is to sauté onions at a very low temperature for a long time, even hours. Try sautéing a big pot of onions and freezing small containers of them. It will eliminate the first step of almost all of my recipes.

Squash often gets a bad rap with both kids and parents but once they discover spaghetti squash, they gain a whole new appreciation for these versatile winter vegetables.

The vitamin-rich, high-fiber squash is the perfect way to get your noodle-loving children to develop a love of vegetables. When you scrape the flesh with a fork, it naturally gives way to long, thin strands that resemble pasta. Children also love the bright yellow color. Perfect for Passover and gluten-free eaters, spaghetti squash with a simple tomato sauce is a terrific dish to add to your weekly repertoire all year long.

When it’s time for Shulchan Orech, the meal of the Passover seder, these stove top mains (and roasted sides) make a perfect main course

During Passovers of long ago, the Jews would bring the Pesach sacrifice at the Beit Hamikdash, and then roast and eat the meat for the Seder meal. Today, many of us refrain from roasting meat at the Seder so no one should think that we are trying to replace the Pesach sacrifice. These three Quick & Kosher entrees cook completely immersed in liquid. To complete the main course, we leave the roasting for the veggies.

Potatoes are an inevitable part of Pesach. You’ll be happy they are when you whip up these fresh and flavorful dishes. These recipes use minimal ingredients so that everyone, no matter what their Pesach customs are, can enjoy them. You can use either the non-Gebrokts potato dough and the Gebrokts version, with either the pesto or the orange sauce.

Gnocchi – Non-Gebrokts
Gnocchi, pronounced “nyo-key”, are thick soft Italian dumplings, most commonly made with potatoes. Gnocchi is usually served as an appetizer, but works as a side or main dish as well. Classic accompaniments of gnocchi include pesto, tomato-based sauces, and melted butter with cheese.

Fit for Royalty

There is no greater sense of satisfaction than that felt at the start of the Pesach Seder. Inside, the house and all its contents are positively gleaming. And outside the first hints of Spring are emerging. Celebrate the Jewish people’s deliverance from slavery to royalty with a palette of white, shimmering gold, and accents of black and green.

Dressing up in costume, eating triangular shaped cookies called hamantaschen, and delivering gift baskets to our friends are all significant parts of the Purim holiday. And although there is no religious significance, a lot of us tend to go all out and match everything—our entire family’s costumes, our gift baskets, and our menu—to a theme.

I’m guilty! Last year, I went Mediterranean-inspired and my whole family dressed the part and delivered the chummos and pita-chip packages you see on Perfect Ideas for Mishloach Manot.   Since we love themes so, I’ve got three themed menus for you—Asian, Spanish, and Italian menus for every course, from starters to dessert. Pick one or mix and match. If you’re really adventurous, make the entire menu and serve the recipes in small tasting party dishes, allowing your guests to straddle the globe as they walk from one side of your dining room to the other.
Whether you’re sporting a sombrero or a kimono this Purim, you’re sure to savor something out-of-this-world.

Eating kreplach is a tradition held by many Jews around the holidays of Purim, Hoshana Raba and Erev Yom Kippur. Traditional kreplach are incredible. Similar to Japanese dumplings and Italian ravioli, kreplach are stuffed dough pockets that are usually simmered with soup, but can be fried as well. We have switched things up a bit and are offering kreplach with various international flavors to add excitement to the traditional dish. We have Middle Eastern, Greek and Indian inspired kreplach that are sure to excite your palate, and more importantly, they are really easy to prepare.
