12 Passover Seder Mains

It feels like Passover is just around the corner!  Conversations always seem to lead to discussions of pesach (Passover) preparations, whether it’s cleaning, menu planning, or figuring out how to configure the house for all of the guests.  While I am not one to give cleaning tips, I would like to offer up the plethora of Pesach recipes here at Joy of Kosher.  If you’re looking for articles with a mix of recipes, check out some of mine from last year (I can’t believe how the time has flown!) including A Trio of Passover Picnic Menus15 Salad Recipes for Passover; 15 Healthy Passover Chicken Recipes; 25 Passover Dessert Recipes; and 101 Passover Recipes.  There are plenty of recipes for many of your menu planning needs, and to add to that below are 12 ideas for main dishes to serve after the seder including meat and vegetarian recipes.

 

In terms of vegetarian mains, I love the idea of mirroring the small plates concept that seems to be the trend at a number of new kosher restaurants.  Maintain a flavor profile across the dishes, but don’t feel at all limited to using the same vegetables.  Keep it savory with Veggie Liver Stuffed Mushrooms, Eggplant Tomato Stacks and Sabra Moroccan Carrots.

 

Nut Crusted Salmon

Seders tend to be quite a marathon event, you can shorten things a bit by limiting the number of course you serve, especially if you’re not serving meat.  Fish makes for an elegant main course and doesn’t take very long to prepare.  Try your favorite fish with an elegant sauce including Nut Crusted Salmon with Creamy Chrain SauceCeviche with Pickled Beets and Creamy Avocado, or Steamed Cod and Sundried Tomato, Olive Tapenade.

 

Passover can be a nostalgic time for many, leading us to expect and look forward to the same dishes year after year.  It is also a time when religious dietary restrictions or community customs are more prominent than ever.  If an old fashioned brisket or maybe an entire lamb is your traditional seder main, we’ve got you covered.

 

For the meat lovers, there is the fail-proof Brisket in a Pot with Garlic and Red Wine Top of the Rib.

 

If lamb is your tradition, try the Lamb Stew with Apricots Pear and Mint or Shredded Lamb with Tomato and Basil (the recipe says to serve over rice, ignore if you don’t eat kitniyot).

 

Orange Chicken with Beets and Sweets

For the poultry people out there, try the health-concious Orange Chicken Thighs with Beets and Sweets or Duck Sauce Chicken (Gold’s Duck Sauce is kosher for Passover!).

Cooking With Wine

Let’s start with a confession: I can’t drink. Not much, at least. Anything more than half a cup of wine makes me extremely tipsy. For this reason, even if I do like the taste, I’ve always had to stop at the first glass, and never had the chance to fine-tune my sensory abilities and learn to appreciate the more complex bouquets.

My lack of tolerance for alcohol has often made me feel not only deprived, but also a bit insecure. After all, since we share with France the title of largest producer in the world, wine in Italy is a big deal.

Vineyard Chicken

Doesn’t it make perfect sense, then, that I should compensate by adding it as often as possible to my recipes? Wine boils (and therefore evaporates) at a much lower temperature than water, and only a tiny percentage of alcohol is left at the end of cooking.

Self-analysis aside, I feel like I am in good company; the idea of cooking with wine is neither original, nor new. Plenty of sources document its use as a cooking ingredient already among the ancient Romans and Etruscans. Back then, it was not only considered a “gourmet” addition, but rather a necessity: in the absence of refrigerators, meat or fish were often preserved in wine for several hours or days, before being cooked in that same liquid. But wine was also appreciated for its flavor, and added to soups, cheeses, vegetables, and desserts.

Poached Eggs

French Poached Eggs In Wine Sauce, Simplified

In most of the countries where wine is produced, it is used to thin out sauces and to give foods depth, body, flavor, and color. More often than not, a few tablespoons will turn a recipe from “blah” into “wow.”

To see what I mean, try boosting your beef or chicken soup with a shot of Port, or your vanilla pudding with a touch of Marsala.

Tuna Steaks

Drunk Tuscan Tuna Steak

Last, but not least, wine is just as comforting as a glass before dinner as it is lovely alongside it. Just sayin’. If you can tolerate it, between adding that fruity Beaujolais to the coq-au-vin and serving the rest to your guests, you might as well steal a delicious sip. Très Parisien.

Lamb-with-Broth

Roasted Lamb with Pomegranate and Wine

Here are some quick tip for cooking with wine:

1. Don’t buy wine labeled “cooking wine,” and don’t try to recycle wine that’s so oxidized and old that it’s undrinkable. Would you cook with an ingredient that is spoiled or tastes bad? The same rule applies to wine.

2. In general, younger wines work better in cooking than aged wines (and have the advantage of costing less).

3. Remember, wine tends to be acidic! When making a recipe that requires lots of wine (some stews and braised meats), it’s best to temper its acidity with the addition of some creamy, fat, or sweet ingredients.

4. The longer the cooking, the more alcohol will evaporate.

Passover Make Ahead Breakfasts

 

March 18th 2015

Effortless entertaining while often seemingly elusive can actually, easily be achieved with make-ahead meals.

We have a full week of chol hamoed this year (yipeeeee!!!) which means lots of day trips and family outings for the Gellers. A hearty filling breakfast is essential to fuel the family for the hiking, site seeing, touring, and roller coasting, activities we have planned. But honestly when you need to get going early there’s no time to start cooking up an extravagant breakfast from scratch. But to eat… now for that, there’s always time!

Here are 4 delish start-the-day-off-like-a-king breakfast ideas you can make the night before. Perfect for filling everyone’s tummies and pretty enough for serving the extended visiting family. (Like my mother-in-law, brother- and sister-in-law and all my nieces and nephews who often sleep over throughout the holiday).  I just love that PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese is kosher for Passover so that I can make all these recipes perfectly creamy and extra delicious.


Passover Crepes with Cream Cheese and Smoked Salmon

This 5 star family breakfast can be made either the night before or even weeks before. To freeze crepes wrap tightly in foil and double wrap in plastic. Before serving, thaw (while wrapped) and reheat loosely wrapped in foil at 250° F for about 20 minutes or until warm. Don’t try to expedite time here as you don’t want to reheat something as delicate as crepes in a hotter oven. And you are not trying to get them hot, they are actually meant to be served warm.

Assemble the morning of with Smoked Salmon and Cream Cheese or Cream Cheese and Fruit.

herbed frittata for passover

Herbed Frittata
Quite like our crepes – make this the night before and reheat at 250° F for about 20 minutes or until just warm.


Creamy Banana and Peach Matzo Brie Bake - Watch The Video Here
My new obsession. Make this year round with bread slices in place of matzo sheets. Completely assemble and refrigerate overnight. (In fact this recipe requires at least 3 hours of chill time before baking off, so you have to plan for it.) Just pop it in the oven in the A.M. for a hot, sweet, start to your day. BTW this Matzo Brie Bake works just as well served hot, with a scoop of ice cream, for dessert.


Kale Matzo Strata
Another prep-the-night-before, chill, bake, and serve recipe. This savory layered goodness in a casserole dish is the ying to my matzo brie yang. And bonus points for the Strata as it can just as easily be served and enJOYed for lunch or dinner.

Chag Kasher V’Sameyach!

Yes, the rumor is true. I did eat 6 of these all by my lonesome when testing the recipe. Now in the interest of full disclosure I ate 3 for breakfast (was a late breakfast, more like brunch) and 3 for lunch (was a late lunch, more like linner). And yes you may have heard that I also fried up some extra eggplant to snack on in between. And while some people may be embarrassed to admit this I think it just proves how much of a winner this recipe really is. So hang on to your hats folks and watch me fry and roll and bake your new favorite Passover and year-round brunch, lunch, linner or dinner dish.

Kosher Pastured Raised Top of the Rib *Giveaway*

 

March 16th 2015

Using only seven ingredients, our signature concept, our Red Wine Top of the Rib recipe is easy to make and is fall-apart delicious! The trick to tenderized, fall-apart meat is to slice it against the grain after the initial cooking process and then to put it back in the oven for a final roast. We highly recommend that you use red wine that you can enjoy after the recipe is complete; try a full flavored wine such as a Merlot or a Shiraz. The red wine adds so much flavor to the recipe and may help to tenderize the meat as well.

In addition to the importance of choosing a well-paired wine, the choice of meat is also key. We used Grow & Behold’s Top of the Rib to make this recipe. This cut of meat can be compared to a brisket in terms of its cooking method and texture. The difference is that the top of the rib is smaller and tenderer. What makes Grow & Behold meats so different is the way they raise their animals. The cattle are raised in an environmentally safe and managed pasture. The majority of the animals’ diet is grass-based. These animals are raised by the dozens, not by the thousands. Additionally, all cattle are humanely slaughtered and Glatt Kosher.

Get our full recipe for Red Wine Top of the Rib and then check out our Giveaway for your chance to WIN!!!  If you missed the last two week’s, click here for Kosher Duck Confit and here for Slow Roasted Chicken how-tos and recipes.

/RECIPE/ Baked Oatmeal To Go

 

March 15th 2015

Don’t let the array of ingredients intimidate you on this recipe. If you’ve been wanting to add some flax into your diet start here. This recipe is not picky and makes some scrumptious  little snacks. I really loved the fact that this recipe gave measurements for stevia (it even had a honey option for those of you who don’t love stevia yet) in the packets or to measure out from a jar  – WONDERFUL!!!!!!!

I was worried when I added the full amount of milk, it was SO runny. But I went with it and it ended up working out just fine.

Instead of using the optional toppings as toppings I mixed them in to spread the flavor. That made this recipe a winner. The chocolate chips spread throughout and the wonderful crunch of the walnuts were not just on the top. I wanted a mixture of flavors not just chocolate and walnut, or cinnamon and raisins. So here is what I did to get that, I did not add the cinnamon in with the dry ingredients. Instead I mixed the batter portion up in a large bowl and then had smaller bowls with my “flavor options” one was raisin, date, cinnamon, & walnut, another was chocolate chips, and walnut etc. Any of your fav combos would work. Then I divided the batter between the four smaller bowls and mixed them to combine.

This accomplished two objectives: 1) mixed the toppings in to make the whole treat yummy, not just the top 2) gave me different flavor profiles for all the people in my family, everyone won.

The batch came out with a bit more (a whole extra pan) than the recipe said which I think is a wonderful thing. But be warned since it will take a little bit more oven time. I liked them a bit thinner, gave it more of a treat bar feel vs. a muffin feel. Over all healthy, fast and a great way to use up that chametz. #chametzfest2015 #bakedoatmealtogo

What Are Kitniyot and Gebrokts?

 

March 15th 2015

Kitniyot refers to  grains and legumes such as rice, corn, soy beans, string beans, peas, lentils, mustard, sesame seeds and poppy seeds which are traditionally not eaten by Ashkenazic Jews on Passover.

Gebrokts is a yiddish word that refers to matzah that has come in contact with water, many hassidic Jews refrain from eating Gebrokts on Passover.

Coming from a family that has both Kitniyot and Non Kitniyot members on Passover I can honestly say that at times it’s a bit overwhelming. I remember the first Passover spent with my sister and her new husband who didn’t eat Kitniyot or Gebrokts!

My mother printed out lists of foods and spices they couldn’t eat and that holiday we all ate a Kitniyot and Gebrokts free seder.

9 Years later we seem to have mastered the integrated Passover meal. We have two soups, multiple mains, and overall it works flawlessly.

Here are some things we have learned over the years. When preparing for a seder like this we try to separate a few things.

1. Make all your mains without kitniyot or Gebrokts and keep your kitniyot dishes separate so that the mains are able to be eaten by everyone.

Here are some delicious mains you should try kitniyot and gebrokts free, but not a sacrifice:

Brisket in a Pot with Garlic is a prefect filling main that is full of flavor and has no kitniyot or gebrokts!

Rosemary Walnut Crusted Salmon with Garlic Aioli is another delicious main course option that caters to everyones passover dietary needs.

2. Split Up your Soup!

Since Matzo balls pose an issue for those who refrain from Gabrokts we have found a way to make it simple. Make one large chicken soup. Split it up into two pots one that will have matzo balls and one that won’t. Make sure to fill the one without Matzo balls with loads of vegetables so no one feels like they are missing out.

Try Combining these two Recipes for the ultimate Matzo Ball Soup- Classic Chicken Soup  & Passover Matzo Balls. 

These Passover Matzo Balls have that perfect spongy texture we wait for all year round.

 

If you are a true matzo ball fan you absolutely must try  this ‘MOD’ Matzo Ball Soup that is packed with delicious vegetables and mouthwatering flavors.

Here are some great side dishes that can be easily separated to accommodate Kitniyot and non Kitniyot eaters!

Wild Rice with Carrots and Beets will brighten up your seder table with delicious flavors and colors.This dish can easily be separated into a vegetable dish and a rice dish. Just make extra vegetables and keep them separate from the vegetables that go into the rice and now you have two great sides!

 

Caramelized Corn and Red Pepper Salad is a great salad option for your guests who will love these springy flavors. This salad can be made two ways, with and without corn so it is edible for everyone at your table!

How To Make The Best Carb Free Hash

You are probably most familiar with hash browns, the ever favorite, breakfast/brunch potato side popular in diners and restaurants everywhere.  Hash browns refer to any type of pan fried potatoes, usually mixed with onions and seasoning, but there is no strict rule though. As you may have noticed, sometimes hash browns are shredded, sometimes they are diced big or small, but as long as the potatoes are browned in a pan they call them hash browns.  Some places, although less common in kosher places, offer corned beef hash, which is corned beef sautéed with potatoes.  Mike’s Bistro makes a nice version of that dish.  Although traditionally potatoes are used in most hash recipes, there are so many wonderful vegetables that can work in place of the potatoes. Also, it is a great way to use up leftovers.

Whether you have leftover meat or vegetables or want to start from scratch, all you need is a big hot frying pan.   This is a great Passover dish too. Whether you choose to add potatoes or keep it with just veggies, it is naturally kosher for Passover.  A little meat goes a long way in a hash, so use flavorful meat like Joburg Sausage.  Any variety will do.  Cut it up into cubes, saute in a large pan with oil, add your favorite chopped up vegetables and enjoy!!

BTW, Joburg Kosher is launching new and updated sausage flavors just in time for Passover! I am so excited to go find them at my kosher market. New flavors include Bratwurst, Beef and Lamb Moroccan and South African Boerewors, all precooked and ready to eat.

Here is my recipe for Cauliflower Brussels Sprout and Sausage Hash.  What’s your favorite combo?

***Giveaway***Now that I got you craving hash, you can enter to win a sampler pack of the best from Joburg Kosher Sausages!
