Passover is a Jewish holiday celebrated in the early spring. Those who celebrate the holiday do not eat leavened bread, which means they can only eat a cracker-like replacement known as matzoh as there is a religious meaning for that. However, foods served during Passover are delicious, and anyone can try recipes eaten during the Seder.
The one thing that anyone knows is part of a Seder dinner is the famous matzoh ball soup, and those of other cultures seem to enjoy that soup at any time of the year. However, there are plenty of other Passover recipes that are delicious, and let’s go over three delightful vegetable recipes that are ideal for this Jewish holiday and you do not have to be Jewish to try this out, by the way.
Passover Vegetable Cups
Whether or not you celebrate Passover, or if you do and it is at another time of year, you will love these Passover vegetable cups. They are straightforward to make even though it takes some time to prepare the dish. But, first, you will need to get to the grocery store and grab the following ingredients:
- Four large carrots grated and peeled
- One large chopped onion
- Four eggs
- Two packages of frozen chopped broccoli, ten ounces each
- Two tablespoons of chicken soup powder
- One tablespoon of butter
- One teaspoon of salt
- One-half cup of matzo meal
- One-eighth teaspoon of pepper
The first thing to do is preheat the oven to 350 Farhenheit or 176.6 Celcius. Then fill up a pot with water and pour the broccoli into it until it is defrosted. The next step is to drain the water out of the pot. Leave the broccoli in for the time being. Then take a frying pan and put the butter into it, and then saute the chopped onions.
After that is done, mix all of the ingredients as the grated carrots, matzo meal, chicken soup powder, eggs, salt, and pepper. You can mix them into the pot where you defrosted the broccoli. Then you will want to take your muffin tins and spray with a non-stick spray into the cups. Put the mixture into each cup, and then place them in the oven. It will cook for about 50 minutes, and if the cups are golden-brown, they are complete. Take them out and let them sit for a few minutes to cool off. Then enjoy.
Honey Horseradish Roasted Vegetables
If you happen to like some spice added to your meals, you may enjoy the honey horseradish roasted vegetable recipe. That is a delicious Passover vegetable recipe that you will want to try. Head over to the supermarket and grab the following ingredients:
- Two cups of cauliflower florets
- Two cups of trimmed and halved Brussels sprouts
- Two garlic cloves
- One cup of halved radishes
- One cup of honey
- Three tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
- One and a half teaspoons of Kosher salt
- One-half cup of horseradish
- One-half cup of pomegranate arils
- One-half cup of chopped walnuts
- One-quarter cup of cilantro leaves
The first thing to do is preheat the oven to 415 Fahrenheit or 213 Celcius, take a baking sheet, and put a lining of aluminum foil onto it. Next, take a large bowl, mix the cauliflower, radishes, Brussels sprouts, and add olive oil and salt. Ensure that the Brussels sprouts’ flat side faces down when you put the mixture onto the baking sheet. Next, place the vegetables into the oven to roast them for a half-hour as they should be golden-brown by then.
As the vegetables roast, you will want to take a pan and heat the honey and horseradish on a medium heat setting. Keep heating it until the sauce is hot, and then take the vegetables out of the oven. Pour the dressing onto them, and add the walnuts, cilantro, pomegranate arils, and enjoy!
Kugel is eaten during the Passover Seder as well as on Shabbat at all times of the year. Kugel is a German word for ball or sphere, and that is because Kugel dishes appeared that way. However, you can make Kugel dishes in any shape that you would like. Kugel recipes involve egg noodles or Passover noodles if eaten during the holiday. If you like noodles, you will love this dish. You will need to head to the grocery store to pick up the following ingredients:
- One and a half pounds of frozen broccoli
- One medium onion
- Four large eggs
- Three minced garlic cloves
- One cup of uncooked egg noodles, or any noodle like it
- Three-quarters of a cup of mayonnaise
- Two teaspoons of salt
Preheat the oven at 350 Fahrenheit or 176.6 Celcius. Then boil the noodles in a pot filled with water and chop the onion at the same time. You can pour the broccoli into the pot of boiling water too. Once the noodles are boiled, and the broccoli is soft, drain them. Then take the broccoli and mash it with a fork, or you can mash it in the blender. Next, take a baking pan and spray it with a non-stick spray.
Then mix the noodles, mashed broccoli, mayonnaise, chopped onion together, and add minced garlic and salt to the mixture. Pour the mixture into the pan and then bake it for 45 minutes. Ensure that the center is clean before taking it out of the oven, so everything is cooked through. After that, take the baking pan out and allow it to cool for ten minutes. Then enjoy it.
