A Gluten-Free Passover Menu

March 22, 2013

The Passover celebration begins this Monday, and for those of you that are celebrating, it’s likely that you’ll be cooking for a crowd at least once during the week to come.

Traditionally, Passover meals are very heavy and filling. For those of us who try to eat gluten-free or have celiac disease, it can be a downright difficult holiday to observe. Jewish tradition requires that you eat unleavened matzo for eight full days, yet most traditional matzo is made from wheat and water – a recipe that can result in indigestion, inflammation, and discomfort for many gluten-free eaters.

This year, we’ve put together a lighter, gluten-free Passover menu that allows you and your guests to enjoy all of your favorites like matzo ball soup or kugel without over doing it – and without upsetting any food allergies or intolerances.
