    Bride of the Juggler

    One of my favorite Passover treats is fresh quacamole on matza.

        Bride of the Juggler

        I usually wing it, something like this:

        Mash one avocado. Mix with juice of one lime, 1-2 cloves crushed garlic, a couple sprigs chopped fresh cilantro, and optionally 1 finely chopped jalepeno pepper (not including seeds). Spread on matza or serve in bowls for dipping.

        Thank you.

          If I may fine-tune ;-)

          Less lime (at most 1 Tbsp per avacado). Lemon juice
          can be substituted.
          Fresh ground black pepper.
          1/4 tsp salt or to taste.


    2. matzah pizza is always a favorite (as is matzah lasagna). grilled vegetables are good as are omlettes with fresh salsa.

          we used the sephardic spinach and cheese pie recipe from

          for the 75 person seder we catered for the Actor's Temple yesterday in NYC and it was delicious

          we did make some modifications to the recipe
          eg. sauteed the spinach first with roasted garlic and hot pepper flakes,

          used pepato cheese instead of mozzarella
          and instead of a top tayer of matza we added an additonal 3/4 pound of cheese as the topping .

          It was delicious, diffferent and well received.

        2. my husband is vegetarian also. does he eat fish? if not, I have several good recipes for a vegetable fricasse (more like veggie meatballs sauteed w/ vegetables) and another one he loves for a veg. nut loaf, using ground walnuts, mushrooms, onion, pepper, etc. if interested I'll email them to you.

          1. Quinoa is a lifesaver for vegetarians during Passover! The "grain" is really a grass, and thus kosher for Passover. Use it instead of rice or couscous. It is a complete protein and awesome hot or cold!

              Quinoa tabbouleh has become a Pesach standard for us. Good, good for you and not a speck of matzah in it.
