Happy (and Delicious!) Passover – Nut, Egg, and Dairy-Free Recipes April 13, 2011

Passover is less than one week away.  And, if you deal with food allergies, you probably worry about what you or your child will be able to eat at family holidays.  As with all food-centric holidays, I always volunteer to bring a few items that I can guarantee will be safe for my son.  Here are a couple of my favorites.


Allergy-Free Charoset

Charoset typically contains walnuts.  I modified this one to exclude them and also omitted the kosher wine since they trigger my migraines.  Everyone gulps this version down so quickly, I literally can’t make enough for our seder!

6 cups peeled, cored, and grated Granny Smith apples
1 lemon, juiced
1 cup golden raisins
1/2 cup honey
3/4 tsp cinnamon
3/4 tsp brown sugar

In a large bowl, combine all ingredients and serve.   Serves at least 8.



And, if you’re struggling to make egg-free matzah balls like we were, check out The Tablet magazine‘s suggestions on the subject.  *Note:  I also added 2 Tablespoons of rendered chicken fat (or schmaltz, as your Bubbe would call it).*  De-lish!
