Passover, or Pesach in Hebrew, is one of the most important holidays in the Jewish calendar and is celebrated with a traditional seder feast on the first and sometimes second nights of Passover. Designed to carry the six traditional foods that inform the ritual, storytelling, and reflection of the Passover tradition, a seder plate can serve as a vessel for feelings of devotion, community, and gratitude, whether its an ornate artisan-made heirloom, ceramic stalwart, or humble paper plate. Check out some of the best seder plates available for Passover.
Passover macaroon recipes aren’t hard to come by, but most contain refined white sugar. We’ve remade the traditional dessert using maple sugar and raw honey instead. If you want to get fancy, after scooping the mixture onto the pan, pinch the tops to give them a pointed look.
An easy homemade tahini sauce infused with lemon juice and garlic elevates the flavor of these colorful carrots. Toasted matzo and hazelnuts make a crunchy topping – no need for bread crumbs!
Casseroles can be a challenge during Passover — not only to keep them free of bread crumbs, but also to keep them dairy-free if you’re keeping the table kosher. This savory-meets-sweet casserole uses sweet potatoes and hemp or coconut milk and is brimming with warming flavors like cinnamon, nutmeg and maple.
