Pesach (Passover) is upon us! Welcome to the healthiest religious cleanse world, unless of course you're like 99.9% of Jews and enjoy your fair share of meats, kugels and pesach cakes (yum?) throughout the week. Despite the countless seder guests you are likely to have plenty of leftovers to get you through some of chol hamoed, but when those run out and you get sick of the matzo, enjoy these 15 matzo free recipes which make for 3 (or more!) matzo free meals.
There's something about pesach that leaves one either achingly full or searching the fridge as if you haven't seen food in weeks. Strike a healthy balance with hearty, meatless meal that should leave you with leftovers for lunch or dinner the next day. Start with the Creamy Carrot Bisque, followed by Zucchini and Potato Tortilla, Drunk Tuscan Tuna Steaks, and Grilled Eggplant and Roasted Pepper Salad with Preserved Lemon. End the meal with something sweet such as Cheesecake Ice Cream with Crumbled Macaroons.
For a light dairy meal start with the Creamy Asparagus Soup, which will make you wonder why you don't cook more dairy based soups. Followed by Stuffed Endive Boats and Silver Dollar Smoked Salmon Stuffed Potato Pancakes. Enjoy a hearty slice of Lemon, Lavender and Almond Cake (lavender is optional) for dessert.
If by mid-chol hamoed you find yourself dreaming of the second days of seders, have no fear an easy meat meal is well within reach. Start with a Seder Plate Salad, which honestly could be a meal in and of itself! For a main try the Garlic Lemon Chickenwith Portobello Carpaccio with Chimichurri, Roasted Carrots and Crispy Shallots. And if there's still room enjoy these adorable Macaroon “Cake” Pops for dessert.
