Passover recipe roundup
Tonight marks the fourth night of Passover, and you’re probably running low on leftovers from the first two nights’ seders (if you had any to begin with). Fear not! These recipes, published on Jewesses With Attitude throughout the last few Passover seasons, will revive your holiday menu and stave off your hunger for bagels and pasta - for at least a few more days.
- Quajado for Passover: Take a break from matzah with this simple Seophardic combination of eggs, vegetables, and cheese.
- Scacchi (Italian matzah pie): This savory matzah pie is filled with a mixture of ground beef, vegetables, and spices.
- Halibut and salmon terrine:This new twist on gefilte fish honors the traditional dish without the traditional distaste.
- Moroccan chicken with olives and lemons: This dish is also served to break the fast of Yom Kippur by Moroccan Jews living in Israel.
- Sephardic leek patties: Matzah meal can replace the breadcrumbs in this Hanukkah recipe.
DIPS AND JAMS
- Artichoke pesto with matzah: Artichokes are mentioned in the Talmud. Why not bring them to today’s Passover meals?
- Not your bubbe’s compote: Don’t be scared of the main ingredient. These wine-stewed prunes with mascarpone are a step up from traditional Ashkenazi fruit compote.
- Coconut jam: Use leftover coconut from making macaroons to create this Egyptian Jewish spread.
- Muhammara: Using matzah in place of breadcrumbs will turn this roasted red pepper and walnut dip into a Passover recipe.
SOUPS, SALADS AND SIDES
- Salade cuite (Moroccan Matbucha); This “cooked salad” is a mix of tomatoes, bell peppers and garlic, perfect for dipping bread into.
- Fava bean soup (bessara): The Moroccan Jewish community traditionally eats fava beans on Passover.
- Charoset medley: Israeli, Persian, Italian and Surinam charoset use ingredients such as bananas, chestnuts, coconut, and cardamom.
- Orange salad with olives: The combination of green olives against the bright color of the oranges makes this a stunning salad.
- Coconut matzah brei: This dessert take on traditional matzah brei tastes reminiscent of another Pasover favorite – coconut macaroons.
- Matzah toffee bark: Make over your matzah with toffee, brown sugar, chocolate chips, and maybe even some peanut butter.
- Gâteau à l’Orange: This simple orange cake only includes six ingredients and five steps!
- Gluten-free lemon Passover cupcakes with blackberry jam and lemon glaze: This is a cake borne out of Passover restrictions – but it’s tasty year-round!
