Matzah Week Recipes

I think we've missed it with the Feast of Unleavened Bread, guys. Scripture describes this week as a feast, and that means lots of delicious and nourishing food. I'm not sure why we have accepted Matzah Week as a time of inferior cuisine.

Shopping this weekend I discovered a special 'Kosher for Passover' section at a grocery store. It contained everything from cereals to mayonnaise to cookies, all certified Kosher for Passover. (Need an overview of what 'Kosher for Passover is? Click here.) These items were all pricey, and the few that I've tried I wasn't impressed with. And the ingredient list? Sketchy at best. There were lots of things I wouldn't want to eat at any time of the year, but especially as a celebration of the goodness and greatness of YHWH. I want to see us get back on track. Like the Passover Seder, what we eat during Matzah Week expresses something about who we believe YHWH is. I believe that he created plenty of foods that are nourishing and wonderful and appropriate to eat during the Feast of Unleavened Bread. 

These recipes are as is kosher for Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread week. No alterations, substitutions, or tracking down strange ingredients necessary. These are made with real, nourishing, whole foods that are found in regular grocery stores. When I made this list I purposefully searched for recipes that would go well with homemade matzah. This week is about unleavened bread after all.

By the way, a lot of olives are free of chametz. Look for kalamatas or other red ones as they are usually preserved in red wine vinegar.
