Paleo Passover Recipes

Posted on April 2, 2012

Paleo recipes take your gluten free seder to the next level of healthiness.

Although I’ve been grain free since 2001, this will be our first strictly Paleo Passover seder. I’m sharing my seder menu since the requests for Paleo Passover recipes are coming in a mile a minute.

With the release date for my new book Gluten-Free Cupcakes, bearing down on me less than one week from today, I feel as though Passover really snuck up on me this year.  I did not post any Passover Menus, though do have ones from years past for those that might be looking for a good kugel recipe or some gluten free Gefilte Fish.

Passover Menu

My mother and father will be spending Passover with us and I am really looking forward to it.  Mom and I will be in the kitchen all day today preparing for our gluten free Seder –she has celiac too, as do my older son, sister and mother-in-law.  Gluten free is a family affair for us.

Matzoh Ball Soup
Chipotle Orange Chicken
Carrot “Kugel”
Coconut Macaroons
Passover Torte
