Our Favorite Passover Dinners

Keeping Passover all week is a good reminder that when it comes to cooking family dinner, keeping it simple is always best.

I need not fear that my kids will go hungry! They will eat salads! And more importantly, since the dinner hour is always crazy in my house, I need to remember that I don’t always have to fuss so much in the kitchen.

 I didn’t make anything with matzah last week, and I opened the package of matzah meal only once to make meatballs.

 I’d love to hear what you cooked last week. Did you make something new for Passover that was a big hit with your family? Do you have some old favorites? Please share!

Smitten Kitchen’s Mini Meat Loaves. I used matzah meal instead of flour and made them into meatballs, which I tossed with spaghetti squash and a simple tomato sauce.

passover week-5

I sautéed some onions in olive oil in a big soup pot and then added a whole chicken with broth and water to cover. I made a Greek lemon soup with the broth and then shredded the chicken for a salad.

passover week-6

Steelhead in parchment with thyme, sliced lemons, spring onions, a drizzle of olive oil and salt and pepper. I roasted some rutabaga and sweet potato fries to go along with it.

Chicken in lettuce cups—always a winner.
