pesach plans: recipe roundup
March 28, 2010 § 2 Comments
It’s been a while since I’ve posted any recipes, and it’s not for a lack of cooking. I have just been super busy and haven’t uploaded any food photos lately. So, instead of waiting until after I’ve cooked to post a recipe I thought I’d post an early Pesach recipe roundup. The picture above is from our Seder last year.
Lentil Soup – adapted from Alton Brown’s recipe – add another 1/2c carrot; use veggie bouillon cubes instead of chicken broth; no grains of paradise because I don’t have any.
Cabbage and Kale Gratin – adapted from the NYTimes – I usually leave out the rice because I don’t think the dish needs it. For Pesach, leave out the breadcrumbs and sprinkle the top with matzo meal before baking.
Crunchy Noodle Kugel – first time making this dish I cut out of the Times a few years ago. I went to a Seder where someone brought this dish and it made me like kugel! I will try to find some time to make it this year.
Lasagna Tart – adapted from 101Cookbooks – make the crust with matzo meal instead of flour for Pesach.
Dark Chocolate Torte with Spiked Blackberry Coulis – I’ve never made this dish, but it looks good.
Charoset – apples, walnuts, dates, wine, cinnamon, ground ginger . . . taste and adjust.
Bumuelos de Masa – Sephardic Pesach breakfast; lovely with agave nectar and strawberries.
