Passover Recipes and Cooking Techniques (2015)

Passover - Shalom

Observing the upcoming Jewish Passover holiday requires a change in cooking style, as  many foods are forbidden. You may also have limited equipment, be cooking for a crowd, or hosting for the first time.

Below I’ve collected what I think are the most useful posts and Kosher for Passover recipes from Cooking Manager.

For more Passover reading see my Jewish website, A Mother in Israel.

I hope you find these recipes and tips useful, whether or not you celebrate the holiday.

Note: For Passover,  replace flour in recipes with matzah meal.

All Passover recipes are gluten-free, unless they contain matzah meal. Most are “non-gebrokt.” For more information see: Guide to Buying Gluten-Free Products on Passover.

  1. Slightly off topic:

    One of the most useful things I did last year, the very first time I made seder and was at home from beginning to end, was sit down and make a list of all the recipes I frequently used that I could make with absolutely no modifications. I wound up with several soups, a few vegetable sides, a couple of chicken and a couple of fish recipes. Plenty for eight days. Took off some of the stress because I knew these were tried and true.

  2. Not off-topic at all. I use that technique pretty much year-round!

  3. Josh Turner says

    Wow these are very interesting dishes. I personally have not used these kinds of foods together and am not much of a fan of the Jewish foods. My father in law took me to one and I just did not like it too much. However I do respect everyones foods.

  4. This year’s hostess hasn’t assigned dishes yet but I’ve got this list bookmarked and ready to inspire. Thanks Hannah!
