Updated! Pesach Recipes with the Basics – here we go!
Updated March 2023
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 for some. Rudy Eggplant, (uses garlic), Romaniam Eggplant Dip (super popular!) Crushed Tomatoes (great with schnitzel and potato kugel), Creamy Avocado Dip (great to make those ripe avocados last), 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.
- Coffee Rub: A great coffee rub thats great on meat and fish.
- 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.
- Coffee Rub Seder Night Salmon: A great flanken recipe. Use the coffee rub on meats with duck sauce if you like things a little sweeter.
- Roast with Onion Tomato Sauce: This roast with onion tomato sauce is a basic that tastes fantastic.
- Flanken Roast over Potatoes: A Flanken Roast that is very special and loved by all.
- 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.
- Chablis Salmon: A white wine salmon everyone loves.
- 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!
- Chocolate Chip Sticks: The best chocolate chips sticks we’ve tasted for pesach!
- Crinkle Cookies: This is a great cookie, and as a bonus it doesn’t contain any nuts.
- Chocolate Cookies: Another great no-nut cookie.
- Three Ingredient Cookie: no potato starch and no chocolate! A great nut cookie.
- Kim’s Pesach Cookies: another nut cookie that has no potato starch but this one has chocolate.
- 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.
