Passover is a very special holiday in the Jewish culture. But too many of us focus on the restrictions, what we can’t eat, the ingredients we can’t use, and all of the stress that comes along with it. Cooking a great Passover meal does not need to translate to anxiety cooking. Relax. It’ll all be okay. Instead of spending time analyzing what ingredients to avoid, focus on the foods you really love.

My own Passover menu is made up of fresh, seasonal ingredients that make beautiful and memorable dishes. These recipes are simple and straightforward and all about bringing delicious flavors and bright colors together and serving your family and guests foods they’ll want to dig into. Here are some of my favorites from my new book, I Heart Kosher. Enjoy!
