Easy Passover Recipes

Pesach Cooking~ the taste of freedom

Here's my one word definition for easy Passover recipes: Simple.

Something that you'd make on any given Shabbos to please your family. Something you enjoy making and eating. And it helps if it's pretty. And because it's simple, it will probably be fairly healthy, too. O.K.; bases covered, got your list? I'm happy to share mine...

The Passover Dips and Appetizer Salads

Johannesburg Tomato Salad~very unusual combo of flavor

The Passover Fish Dishes

Seafood Louis with Remoulade sauce ~an simple salad that looks as pretty on individual serving plates as it does on a large platter

The Passover Side Dishes

Steamed Broccoli with Lemon and Walnuts ~another simple and elegant side dish, great for chol hamoed

Carrots Marsala ~super seder side dish

Quinoa and Carrots ~quinoa for passover is a nice change from potatoes, use our Passover Soy Sauce Substitue to make this delish
