Healthy Passover – Recipe Roundup

by on April 6, 2012

Happy Friday! I’m super excited the weekend is finally here. Not only are Isaac and I are off to Austin, TX tomorrow, but there are two holidays to celebrate as well – Passover and Easter!

For the past few years I’ve gone with Isaac to his Passover Seder dinner but unfortunately we’re going to miss it due to our trip this year. (See my recaps here and here). Since Passover starts this evening at sundown I thought it would be fun to feature some of the healthy Passover recipes I’ve spotted on the web this week. Enjoy!

Amazing Charoset <– My own recipe! I call this the “Spreadable Larabar.”

Even if you don’t celebrate Passover these recipes are worth checking out. Enjoy your weekend and have a happy holiday!

I might make the quinoa dish as my Easter vegetarian entree!

That would be perfect!! Happy Easter!

These pictures make a passover dinner sound (and look) delicious. After a bad experience in a Catholic school recreation of seder dinner many years ago, I’ve been skeptical. But, it definitely wasn’t food like this :) Have a great weekend!

You too Gina! Happy Easter!

Love this! I have to show this to some of my friends celebrating Passover, they will love it :)


Emily April 6, 2012 at 3:25 pm

These look AMAZING. I unfortunately cannot go home for Passover this year, but next time I do I’m making some of these!

Is it wrong that i instantly saw the wine and thought… I need some of that right now? haha.
Love the recipes, i want them all.

That Charoset looks awesome! I’m not sure I’d be safe around it though I’d eat the whole lot in one sitting!


Eating Bird Food April 6, 2012 at 5:28 pm

The Charoset is definitely not safe around me either. haha


Maria April 6, 2012 at 10:51 pm

I want to make it all! I think I’ll start with yours…the spreadable larabar. Enjoy your passover!


Natasha April 6, 2012 at 11:44 pm

Thanks lady!!


Stephanie April 7, 2012 at 9:28 am

Some great recipes there girl! Spotted that matzo pizza too and was so intrigued by it and your recipe for charoset sounds phenomenal – I haven’t had that stuff since I was younger and sharing dinner with our Jewish neighbors! Hope you two have a fabulous trip and can’t wait to hear about it when you get back!: )


Eating Bird Food April 7, 2012 at 10:55 am

Thanks lady! We’ll definitely have to get together when we get back.

I have a feeling you would love the charoset. It’s so good on everything. :)

It is so nice to see that you recognize and incorporate all of the Jewish holidays in your posts! I love seeing how you and Isaac share both of your experiences together. Plus, the recipes are always a yummy bonus! Thanks for the wonderful blog!!!!
