18 Delicious Passover Recipes to Share With Friends and Family

18 Delicious Passover Recipes to Share With Friends and Family

Passover is a celebration of freedom, and a Seder is typically filled with prayers, readings, songs — and, of course, delicious Passover recipes!

A traditional Seder plate includes six items:

  • Maror (a bitter herb, typically horseradish)
  • Charoset (a ground-up mix of chopped apple, walnuts, and red wine)
  • Karpas (typically a piece of parsley dipped in salty water)
  • Z’roa (a roasted bone, usually lamb shank)
  • Chazeret (a bitter green such as romaine lettuce)
  • Beitzah (a hard-boiled egg)

And because leavened grains are prohibited during Passover, another Seder staple is matzo, an unleavened flatbread with a cracker-like consistency.

But along with these must-haves, there’s plenty of room to get creative with your Passover menu! From traditional Jewish recipes to hearty dishes that fit within the dietary rules, here’s a list of tasty Passover recipes that will cover you for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Please note that some of the brands listed in the recipes linked below may not be kosher for Passover. Be sure to check the packaging for “Kosher for Passover” certification — especially for ingredients such as potato starch, flour, and arrowroot powder — and make substitutions as needed.
