Passover is around the corner, and though I’m not hosting, I wanted to provide a roundup of some of my favorite Passover recipes. This is a meat menu, so no dairy here.
Saveur's tahini dip with crudites is a great healthy, non-dairy appetizer.
I don’t start a Jewish holiday dinner without making Smitten Kitchen's matzo ball soup. Everyone loves it, and it's super easy.
I know brisket is traditional (and here’s my favorite brisket recipe), but I love the idea of serving a chicken tagine, like Food52's,'s, instead. Like brisket, it can be prepared in advance and reheated, but chicken is a little lighter for the springtime (and a change of pace from every other Jewish holiday).
Couscous makes a perfect (and easy!) side dish for that, as does a nice springtime roasted asparagus.
Potato kugel, like the one here from Food and Wine, is substantial, especially if you have vegetarians attending, and can be made the night before.
Round it all out with a salad of your choice and a stack of matzo, and serve some classic and simple coconut macaroons for dessert.
