Paleo Passover Recipes


I was diagnosed with celiac disease in 1998 and went on a gluten-free diet. Although I followed it religiously, eating gluten-free wasn’t enough, so in 2001 I went on the grain-free diet and have followed it strictly ever since. All of the dishes in my books and on this website are grain-free recipes. Additionally, I don’t eat corn or potatoes, so all of my recipes are corn-free and potato-free.

As you can imagine, I’ve had decades of experience preparing grain-free and paleo Passover recipes. Since the requests are coming in a mile a minute, I’m sharing my gluten-free paleo Seder menu here. My Passover recipes will take your gluten-free Seder to the next level of healthiness!

I hope this menu will make the combination of being Jewish and following a gluten-free or grain-free diet much easier. If you’re not Jewish, feel free to enjoy these easy paleo diet recipes, which include grain-free classics such as my Paleo Matzo Ball Soup.

If you’re not all that familiar with preparing a gluten-free Seder, you’ll want to take a look at my Favorite Passover Ingredients post to get started!

This Paleo Passover Menu is an oldie but goodie from the archives, I first published it in 2012.

  1. Hi Elana,
    I just came across your site and I have developed food allergies over time that are serious enough that the side effects take days to wear off. I had to quit dairy, beef, lamb, all poultry, wheat and oats. I have tried to reintroduce these items but my body declares war. I was sufffering from respiratory distress, eczema, chronic cold sores and caught every cold and flu. I had gained weight that was causing high blood pressure. Since I quit these foods, I am better but not perfect yet. I lost 40 pounds and am on the lowest dose of blood pressure medication.

    I am excited to try some of your recipes to see if I further improve. People like you who develop these recipes and generously share them with the world are invaluable people. Thank you for spending your time supporting others.

    • Daphne, thanks so much for sharing your health journey with me. I’m so sorry to hear about all that you have been through. One other item that’s helped me quite a bit that you might like to look into is electromagnetic radiation in your living environment. Here’s more information on it:

      I hope you’ll keep me posted on your progress!

  2. Hello Elana, my name is Andy. I don’t remember how I found your website but I’m thankful I did. I have suffered with allergic reactions to dairy & wheat for years & as you can imagine it’s been very miserable. I have downloaded every recipe of yours I could find and am enjoying them every day. I experienced a severe brain injury seven years ago in an accident with many broken bones all over my body, survived when they said I wouldn’t, but it has complicated life for me. I follow a Ketogenic diet as well to help my balance, a complication from the brain injury. Thank you so much for your dedication & hard work putting these recipes together. No telling how many you have helped. Know that it is appreciated.

    • Hi Andy, thanks so much for your wonderful comment. I’m sorry to hear about all that you have been through, but glad that we met here and that we are on this healing path together :-)
