Vegetarian Passover recipes

Half of our Table will be Vegetarian, but they do eat dairy products.
Sides, Soup and Desserts will be no problem, but what do you do for Mains?
Was thinking of something with Gluten possibly.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

  1. i don't know. With all the sides, soups, etc. at the seder meal, I'm not sure anything else is necessary. Especially if they eat dairy/eggs. At our family's table, b/w the veg cabbage borscht, salad, boiled eggs, roasted veg, potatoes, potato kugel, salad, etc., there's enough to make anyone full without the meat mains. We have had different vegetarian matza lasagnas (there's tons of recipes out there) also.

    1. eggplant parm ( with matza meal,) butternut squash gratin, portobellos stuffed with spinach

      1. I always make these for Passover seder - along with all the gazillions of other things - because there is inevitably a vegetarian at the table. In any case, they're so good that everyone eats them, not just the vegetarians. I generally make the mixture one day, fry them the next day, then refrigerate, reheat and serve them the following day for seder. It works just fine. Usually make a double or triple batch for a large crowd. And by the way - if it's important to you, gluten is made from wheat and therefore really not suitable for Passover, if anyone's observant.

        Passover Vegetable Patties

        1½ cups chopped red and/or green peppers
        2 tbsp. vegetable oil
        1½ cups grated raw carrots (about 3 carrots)
        2 cups cleaned and chopped raw spinach, tightly packed
        3 potatoes, boiled and mashed (about 2 cups)
        1 large onion, grated
        3 eggs, beaten
        1 salt
        Pepper to taste
        1 cup matzoh meal

        Sauté the chopped peppers in the oil until soft, about 10 to 15 minutes. Dump them into a large bowl, add all the other ingredients, mix very well, and let the mixture stand, refrigerated, for at least an hour (or overnight).
        By hand, form this mixture into patties, flattening them slightly. Heat some vegetable oil in a large skillet and cook the veggie patties over medium heat until golden brown on both sides.
        Makes about 10 patties.

          Thanks Nyleve,
          The Veggie Burgers sound good.
          Will try
          Don't really care about the wheat content, as long as it is not Bread, Pasta, etc., I am fine with it.

        2. I like making portabello mushrooms a main course for vegetarians on passover. You can simply grill with balsamic vinegar or stuff with spinach or a pesto or use your imagination. It works for all types of vegetarians and is substantial and meaty.

          Good luck.

          1. A lot of self described vegetarians are actually pescatarians, they eat fish. If so, that opens up your choices considerably. Is that a possibility?
