Perfect Passover Menu

seder1.jpgPassover falls the third week of April. While summer’s harvest is still months away, the first shoots and sprouts are beginning to poke their heads out of the soil. Your seder is the perfect place to celebrate this new emerging life – both on the seder plate, and during your meal.

Still planning what to serve? The Jew & The Carrot’s Passover menu will add healthy and sustainable flair – and the best tastes of springtime – to your seder table.  (This meal happens to be vegetarian, but aside from the lasagna, everything can easily be made parve – so feel free to substitute your favorite chicken, fish or brisket – recipe!)

On the Menu:
Vegetarian Matzah Ball Soup – or -
Borscht with Cabbage
Israeli Salad
Sauteed Fiddleheads with Garlic
Roasted New Potatoes with Rosemary
Almond Quinoa Salad – or -
Quinoa with Beets and Fresh Orange
Matzah Lasagna
Chocolate Dipped Macaroons

    Leah, Thanks for commenting on my foul recipe–it allowed me to discover your terrific blog. The fiddleheads recipe looks really good. Do you know where one can get fiddleheads outside of New England? I suppose not any wild fern will do…

    Leah, I really enjoy this blog & I’m looking forward to trying some of your veg recipes.

    I copied this one down to share, because it’s a real winner. Doesn’t taste like Passover fare at all. I even took it to a pot-luck dinner during the week of Passover to group that was entirely Catholic. They devoured it.

    It’s called Mina de Masa, and it’s a like Greek inspired giant empanada. Very sophisticated.

    And if you want an amazing, healthy, sophisticated Matzo Ball Soup. Try this Fennel, Leek, and Spinach Soup. Add your own recipe for Matzo Balls.

    That menu looks so good. I love fiddleheads!

    Maya — check your local farmers market. I’m down in DC and we can usually get them here.

    Hmm…there’s a farmers market on my way home today. If I see fiddleheads I may have to make a slight change/addition to my planned menu!
