PASSOVER LOW CARB MENU

Passover Low Carb Menu

"Matzo" ball soup
Aunt Sadie's Roast Brisket of Beef with Natural Gravy
"Noodle Kugel" made with spaghetti squash
Sweet and Sour red cabbage
Horse Radish Sauce with Sour Cream
Dottie's Green Bean Dish
Charoset (made with one apple, pecans, chayote, cinnamon, diet grape drink)

I do use some *matzo meal with ground pork rinds to make the matzo balls.
This is not kosher for Passover because of the pork.
All these recipes I have posted here and on my board.
One of the low carb magazines featured some of my recipes.

I hope this gives ideas for those on LC who are wondering how to get
through without eating a ton of Matzo.

Hey Barbo - the pork rinds really got to me!

Passover is easy as can be for low carbers. Our family has always had the following for Seder:

Gefilte Fish - even the jarred ones are low in carbs.
Hard Boiled Eggs - no problem there
Chicken Soup - just leave out the potatoes
Brisket or Turkey (1st v 2d night) - no worries
Veggies - easy peasy

Dessert is easy as well, with a bit of work. Macaroons can be easily made carb free (well almost) as long as Splenda is not used - but liquid is OK.
Any of the flour free chocolate cakes, using nut flours work well too.

As to Matzoh, well eat what you have to in order to fulfill the religious requirements if that is what you feel you need to do. Use dry red wine for the 4 cups and you are all set.

You know, it is a major Holiday for those of us who observe it. So I say . . . let loose a little and enjoy! I would do the same at Christmas (we have a mixed household and celebrate everything!)

Beyond that it is just a question of foregoing more of the things we already skip by eating low carb. Yes, no matzoh balls, soup nuts, etc. Or, one can choose to 'cheat' for the night and have a matzoh ball or two. Fielder's choice.

In reality, Passover is low carb by definition, so Ziesen Pesach everyone!

I made a savory "egg" noodle kugel using tofu shirataki fettucini noodles - it was fabulous! It had egg whites (could use whole eggs), mustard, and some plain greek yogurt with seasonings.

I've also found a few other LC matzoh ball recipes using flax and almond meal that seem decent. (Pork rinds - Barbo, I was cracking up! Love it!) I also normally make a few LC breads/muffins all year round that would be kosher for passover already. Being low carb really is a bit like Passover 365 days out of the year!

i am cracking up too

You see my Russian/Jewish grandmother would be so upset with me
for mixing matzo meal and pork rind meal. But she will never know.
I felt I was being quite clever in making a tasty, fluffy low carb matzo ball.

My kugel mixed with spaghetti squash and fine noodles also came out
beautiful. I took concord sacramental wine and mixed it with diet grape/cranberry.
Honest it was good. I mixed charoset with one apple, some nuts and
chayote and moistened it with my 'wine' and cinnamon. Everyone gobbled
it up. The only thing I didn't have lowered carb was the matzo.

Chag Sameach! Thankfully unleavened bread isn't hard for us.

No pork rinds here, no way. LOL

matzoh balls

I used one scoop of fantastic flour mix, with one egg..added parsley and onion powder. I avoided the pork but I believe there is a tiny bit of baking powder in the mix. I dropped spoonfuls of the dough into the boiling broth covered and simmered. Looked identical to the full carb ones. Light and tasty. One could omit the baking powder use psyllium for the coconut flour and separate the egg, beating the egg white and folding it in the other mixed items before dropping in the soup.

Ditto on the no way to pork rinds! But I can see the intention was a good one.

Everyone should do what they need to do!

I make regular "balls" but just have a half. It's not a big deal in the grand scheme.

And the rest of Passover is a low carber's dream, right?
