A Perfect Passover Menu

Late March Meal Plan

Hello!
 
Passover is sneaking up on us this year, and what’s even more startling is that this is our second Pandemic Passover—it’s mind churning to enter year two of anything right now, especially after a year that for me went by more quickly and slowly than any year in my lifetime.
 
Perhaps this year you are able to gather in a safe, small group, whereas last year the world was feeling just haywire. Perhaps you are still hunkering down with your immediate family, and making the most of an important day in the Jewish calendar. Either way, there’s dinner to plan and prepare, and I always want to make every holiday feel special, no matter how small the group, pandemic be damned.
 
If you are a Kosher household, or keeping Kosher for the holidays, then you should be sure to check your menu as you pull it together to make sure it follows the laws of Kashrut (no mixing of meat and dairy, no leavened bread [chametz] or fermented grain products). If you are just looking to create a menu that feels festive and Passover-ish in nature, then perhaps your menu won’t be strictly Kosher, but it will feel like the holidays nonetheless.
 
Not celebrating Passover? Got you. I’m going to go out on a limb and say that most of the following recipes could find a way into your cooking whether you are Jewish or not, whether you observe Passover or not. At this moment in time there is a growing appreciation for cooking food that may not be part of your culture or your comfort zone and copious rewards for taking a shot at something new (speaking of shots . . . here’s hoping we all are getting ours soon!).
 
And next week, we hit those Easter recipes . . . 
 

Charoset is one of the six symbolic foods on the seder plate during Passover, and beyond being symbolic, it’s actually pretty delicious, too.

Matzoh brei is not much more than scrambled eggs with broken up pieces of matzoh, and it's one of the simplest and most delicious ways to use up leftover matzoh ever.

You know this dish, right? If you don't, I so envy you, trying it for the first time. For years this baked chicken recipe was often the centerpiece of my Passover, and often Rosh Hashanah as well (it’s kind of Sephardic Jewish in nature, with the dried fruit and the wine, so feels perfect for the holidays).

Total comfort food, fall-apart tender, and savory (and good brisket knows no religion).

Rich dark meat braised to perfection. This definitely hits all those high notes of Mediterranean deliciousness.

These roasted carrots have a tangy dressing and are a gorgeous and colorful side to all sorts of meals, from holiday feasts to weeknight dinners. Serve warm or at room temperature.

This gorgeous salad includes roasted fennel cooked with a dusting of Parmesan, plus spinach, arugula, and red onion in a lemony vinaigrette.

In a hot oven with just a handful of seasonings, a simple wedge of cabbage turns into something magical.

This matzoh covered in a toffee-like layer, then draped in melted chocolate, and finished with a sprinkle of plain flaky salt or chopped nuts is the best end to Passover dinner imaginable.

Click here for the recipe.

Marshmallows get squished between two layers of toffee chocolate matzoh in one of the greatest things to happen to a piece of matzoh. Ever.

BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE . . .
