Happy almost Passover! Happy almost Easter! Happy spring!
I was hoping to have a recipe up for Passover this year, but it might not happen. Sometimes non-blog life conspires to keep me away from the stove and camera! Check out Cheater’s Braise Chicken for a great main course, Elegant Springtime Gefilte Fish and Passover Sole à la Meunière for fish-deliciousness, and the Most Decadent Flourless Cookies for dessert! Alternatively, you could dollop seasonally appropriate Rhubarb Compote on a pavlova or some Passover cake?
Some people don’t eat beans, rice, and corn during Passover, but if you do I have some great dishes for you! My Vegan Three Sisters Stuffed Squash is so perfect for making ahead, it might end up being our main course for our seder! Green beans might make an appearance at our seder table in the form of salad with pomegranate and barberries, or perhaps they will be pickled! For breakfast, I might toast up some Paleo nut and seed Passover Granola!
Seriously, there are so many great options for Pesach! And if all else fails, quinoa is your Passover savior!
