There’s more to passover than just Seder Dinner….and here you’ll find healthy passover recipes to help you get through all 8 days! Passover food can taste incredible! Enjoying those other 22 passover meals is all about celebrating all we CAN eat during this holiday.
Vegetables don’t have to be BORING…I’m here to help you find some joy in making easy recipes for passover that taste great and are also good for you. I’ve broken this post into categories, so it’ll be easy to find what you’re looking for.
The biggest category, by far, is the passover side dishes. I think that’s where people struggle the most. To come up with a variety of tasty sides that don’t have chametz doesn’t have to be challenging. You’ll find a great array of veggies, used in different ways and with different flavors so you can find something that everyone will enjoy. Your Passover menus don’t have to be complicated….choose from these easy recipes to complement your meals and spend less time cooking.
However…the number one post on this site for Passover (and, to be honest, year round) is my Cauliflower Onion Rolls.…and I’d be hard pressed to put them into just one category! They’re in for some stiff competition this year from this runaway recipe hit Cauliflower Kugel. If you sense a cauliflower theme, you’re on to something. My advice: stock up on cauliflower for Passover….you’ll find a way to turn it into all the things….steaks and whole roasted, rice, tabbouleh, soup, salad passover breakfast, vegan main dishes, and more!
Passover Side Dishes
Passover vegetable recipes that are super tasty….yes, there is such a thing! I’ve rounded up some of my favorite passover side dishes here for you. Pick one, pick two….oh, there’s a whole week….these are easy side dish recipes, make them all!
With a little creativity, Passover snack can be healthy and delicious. Here are a few suggestions….plus fruits and vegetables are always good choices. If you cut up fruit and put it out, it will get eaten. If you make veggies easily available, that’s what your family will snack on.
There’s traditional passover food, and then there’s healthy vegan passover recipes. Straddle those two with these meal ideas. When you go heavy on the sides, do you really need much more?
Passover Salad Recipes
Salad is always an important part of a balanced diet….but on Passover, it plays an even more crucial role. Many traditional passover foods, like matza, are binding. Eating a wide variety of fruits and vegetables is important to keep our gut flora diverse and our bowel movements regular.
Passover meals should include fresh salads. Make sure to offer a combination of raw and cooked vegetables multiple times a day. Change up the veggies, make a few tasty dressings, and cut up what’s in your crisper drawer! In addition to healthy salad recipes, check out some of the dips in the snack section…crudites are a legit option too.
Vegan Soup Recipes for Passover
Dairy-free and delicious….these soup recipes are easy to make and super satisfying. A hearty soup makes a terrific lunch and can be packed in a thermos if needed. These Passover soup recipes are big on nutrition and taste. We often eat soup and salad for dinner….all year round…and I think it’s a great choice during the holiday as well.
Yes, healthy Passover desserts are a thing! Delicious dessert doesn’t have to spike your blood sugar! Use dates and other natural sweeteners, so no refined sugar is needed. Healthy desserts that double as breakfast too? Yup…you bet!
Some of the everyday healthy desserts that we love are also kosher for Passover…how awesome! All of the desserts you’ll find here are made with no sugar and no dairy. Occasionally you’ll find eggs in these recipes, but you will also find many vegan passover dessert recipes too.Dairy-free means you can serve these no matter what was in your Passover meal.
