Why We Eat Whole Wheat Matzo for Passover

Matzo Granola

April 15th 2011By Tamar Genger MA, RD

My family switched to whole wheat bread a long time ago. I don't really remember white bread in our house. That’s not to say I don't enjoy a nice baguette or focaccia when I am at a café or restaurant, but for everyday sandwiches I always choose whole wheat. Why should Passover be any different?

This Passover vegetarian recipe is also perfect as a meatless main any time of year. A pareve vegetarian roll up that works well as an appetizer or side dish. If you don’t use tomatoes on Pesach, you can just skip the tomato sauce, as the eggplant rollatini is delicious as is.


Vegetable Fried Quinoa

When I discovered Kosher for Passover soy sauce I discovered a whole new menu of foods. I love cooking chinese and this version of vegetable fried rice using quinoa is great for Passover and all year round. Add tofu if it is not Passover. It is best to use day old quinoa for this, but works either way. Reheats well.

So if you’re making your first Seder, I can do more than sympathize. I remember what my first Pesach was like and I can give you solid help. I would have given anything, even Aunt Zahava’s noodles, for a list like this. It goes in order of Seder use.


The Last Suppers

Hi Jamie, I am a harried mom of 3 and find cooking healthy meals in the last few days before Pesach a real challenge. It’s no big deal to eat out once or twice – but the challenge is feeding everyone well while bringing minimal chometz into the house. What kind of suppers do you advise? Thanks, Jenny in Boston


The Benefits of Fiber in Quinoa


March 24th 2011By Suzanne Fisher RD, LD/N

As a Dietitian, I am constantly extolling the benefits of fiber. Fiber-rich foods not only fill us up, but also are essential to a healthy diet. Fiber can lower your risk of heart disease, diabetes and certain cancers. Daily recommended intake of fiber for adults is 25 grams for woman and 35 grams for men. Most importantly, especially during Passover, it can prevent or relieve constipation. One of the side effects of the dreaded “Matzo diet” is irregularity. It is a passing joke during the holidays, but can really put a damper on enjoying the holiday in comfort.


The 4 Questions for a Frugal Passover


April 5th 2011By Mara Strom

If you’re like many people, the cost of Pesach can be pretty overwhelming. Between the pounds brisket, the dozens (and dozens) of eggs, and the liters of wine – not to mention all those kosher for Passover specialty items – a week of Pesach can cost two to three times an entire month’s worth of groceries.

Smoked Salmon Rolls


March 7th 2011By Jamie Geller

Have fun with appetizer presentation for these Passover dairy recipes. It's a chance to use your creativity, even a touch of whimsy, to put a twist on this smoked salmon opener. To make it really festive, use the green part of a scallion, tied as a bow, to secure each salmon roll.

Shlishkes are small potato-based dumplings, popular in Ashkenazic Eastern European cooking. These soft dumplings are traditionally rolled in browned and flavored crumbs. Make this dish non-Gebrokts by using the gnocchi potato dough for the shlishkes, and by replacing the matzo meal with more ground almonds for the crumbs. Or just save this special recipe for the last day of Pesach like I do!


Sensational Seder Side Dishes

April 4th 2011By The Kosher Girl

There may be no meal as important, or as stressful, as a Passover Seder. The planning, cleaning, preparation, buying kosher for Passover – and let’s not forget we still have to make the food taste good! In spite of these restrictions, it is possible to create a delicious and memorable Passover meal. Maybe the best parts of that meal (and a leading cause of Seder Stress) are the Seder Side Dishes.
