Its been close to a year since my last bite of matzah and I must confess that I am looking forward to that first bite of Shmirah matzah on the first seder night- April 3rd. I also know that after two huge seder meals I will be craving to go back to my healthier eating habits and not want to see matzah in any form until 2016.
Here are some matzah and chametz free ( no leaven) recipes that will satisfy your hunger and please your tastebuds!
Instead of grabbing that bag of chips when you want something salty to crunch on make a batch of kale chips. They can be seasoned just like chips and satisfy the need to munch.
I make kale chips weekly…..not just for Passover.
Every year I find a few new recipes that I make regularly and after 6 months my family tires of whatever it is and stops eating it. This years newest addition is a delicious tomato fennel soup from Lady Gaga’s restaurant. I love this soup, it takes under 30 minutes to make and is very hearty even though there are no starchy veggies in it.
I’m going to make sure I always have a container in my fridge for the eight days of Passover.
Most Passover recipes include matzah; as lasagna noodles, pizza crust, granola, crackers and bread crumbs . For 8 days matzah becomes very versatile.
My kids live on matzah pizza!!! This year i am going to try this gluten free and matzah free pizza recipe made with cauliflower as the crust.
I will see how it goes over with my family and keep you posted.
I’d love to know how you eat healthy during the eight days of Passover.
