Pesach Recipes with the Basics – here we go!
Updated March 2022
It’s the time of the year when I got lots of messages for people asking for me recipes I gave them last year. Years ago, I thought I was clever. I uploaded as many recipes as I could to cookkosher (a recipe database website I put together). However I still had to send them the links. Here is my list of recipes I’ve shared with hundreds of women over the years (now they’re all together in one place).
- Crepes & Lukshen: For some, it isn’t Pesach without these crepes.
- Mayonnaise: Here is an immersion blender version. You can easily do this with a food processor but the immersion blender is a cool hack. Watch how to do it here.
- Dips: There are so many dip recipes on betweencarpools. Click here and here and here! + mock babaganush is an oldie but goodie.
- Salad Dressing: Here is a great basic lemon dressing and creamy avocado dressing.
- Falsche Fish: Those of you who need this know what this is.
- Sauces: Making your own isn’t complicated. Try the duck sauce. Click here to learn all the things you can make using your own homemade duck sauce.
- Caramelized French Roast: The softest roast, caramelized French roast, with really super simple ingredients.
- Meat with Caramelized Pearl Onions: It’s a bit of a pain to peel those onions, but this meat with pearlized onions is a nice change from the roasts and ribs.
- Falling Off the Bone Flanken: Works great with ribs or flanken.
- Roast with Onion Tomato Sauce: This roast with onion tomato sauce is a basic that tastes fantastic.
- Chicken with Potato Chips: Many people don’t use potato chips but this is a great chicken if you do. Substitute potato starch for the flour.
- Veal: Here is my Pesach version of this. Omit mushrooms if you don’t use mushrooms and use chicken stock; it works great with boneless chicken breasts too.
- Battered Schnitzel: A kid’s staple, battered schnitzel. A must make every year.
- Caramelized Chicken: A great chicken cutlet that freezes well.
- Schnitzel Crumbs: These are my favorite.
- Pulled & Shredded Beef: * in the oven: Substitute second cut brisket for flanken in Falling off the Bone Flanken recipe or cover with duck sauce and water. Cover and bake on low for at least 4-5 hours until soft. * on the stovetop: Use Caramelized French Roast recipe and cook until soft, adding water halfway through. Pull apart. Reheat with some strained cooking liquid + salt and pepper to taste. Serve with Guacamole and Pesach Crackers. * You can also try this pulled beef recipe from Yudit Stock or this roast with onion and tomato sauce.
- Yerushalmi Noodle Kugel: here
- Vegetable Egg Rolls: A vegetable egg roll recipe for those that don’t use cabbage on Pesach.
- Imitation Cabbage and Noodles: Not cabbage and not noodles. Imitation. Hey, this is what Pesach is all about.
- Scalloped Potatoes: this is a nice change from potato kugel, however this tastes best when served fresh, so make it and serve it that day and or night.
- Potato Kugel: really our family favorite! And don’t forget the overnight version!
- Aunt Ruchy’s Sweet Potato Chip Salad: our new Pesach favorite salad.
- Crunchy Avocado and Kohlrabi Salad: a light and super fresh salad.
Desserts & Cakes
- One Bowl Brownie: No mixer, no cleanup one bowl brownie.
- Chocolate Soufflé & Molten Cakes: A classic make-every-year dessert.
- Wafer Layer Cake: It’s not Pesach without this cake. The best way to serve it is to cut it into little squares and serve semi-frozen!
- Crinkle Cookies: This is a great cookie, and as a bonus it doesn’t contain any nuts.
- Chocolate Cookies: Another great no-nut cookie.
- Lemon Ices: A favorite we save for Pesach although everyones begs to make these ices year round!
- Pineapple Applesauce: This applesauce is so refreshing. Always add fresh pineapple and use green apples. I haven’t met someone that doesn’t like this, even when they don’t usually go for applesauce.
- Apple Pie: here
- Apple Crumble: here
- Cheesecake: This is my mother’s famous cheesecake; replace the flour with some potato starch, use less orange juice and use crushed ladyfingers mixed with butter as a crust.
- Homemade Nutella: Use this nutella as a spread over matzah, or warm it up a touch and drizzle over some ice cream for dessert.
