Welcome to the carb free world of zucchini pasta! I wouldn’t expect any kid under 16 to really gobble it up and think it’s spaghetti, but this dish is truly for eaters like me who crave the carbs, but don’t want the end result to end up as an extension of our butts as we start to peel off our cozy winter layers.
So, here goes… it all starts with an easy $3.99 zucchini shredder and a couple of dark green Italian zucchini. First put on some cooking gloves and scrub your zucchini with a clean Dobie Sponge and some running cold water to get off all of the sandy grit that will give your zucchini pasta an unwelcome crunch.
Next, hold your zucchini in one hand (wearing your cooking gloves) and shred away. You will be amazed at how easy it is to use your new shredder.
Next- add your shredded zuchinni to some garlic and hot pepper flakes that have been warming up in olive oil that has been starting to get fragrant on a low flame.
Sauté for about 4-5 minutes mixing with a spoon. Over-sautéing will make it mushy. If you are serving it the next day (Like for Shabbat lunch), then just sauté your garlic and hot pepper flakes and add into your zucchini pasta an hour or two before serving. Cover it in a bowl till you are ready to serve. The garlic and hot pepper flakes will cook it last minute and wont leave you with a reduced puddle of pre-cooked mush.
Sauté sliced mushrooms in a separate pot with some garlic, you can also lightly sauté some halved cherry tomatoes, broccoli, peppers, or any combination that you can dream up. Shred some parmesan and sprinkle on top, add pesto, or just leave in a pretty bowl on the side so that your guests can help themselves. Of course this dish can be made pareve by just omitting the cheese. Im sure that you will enjoy this dish and will continue to serve it all year round (even as part of your Passover menu!) using different combinations each time.

Lemon Garlic Roast Chicken for Passover or Jon’s Roast Chicken
by Kim Kushner
“This dish, a weekly staple in my house and my husband Jon’s favorite, is a perfect example of how a few top-quality ingredients are all you need to make a fabulous meal.Cooking this chicken on a vertical chicken roaster stand (available online) allows you to roast a whole chicken in an upright position. The result is unfailingly moist and juicy chicken. In a pinch, you can use an empty soda can! The chicken tastes best the day it is roasted.”
This simple Passover dessert recipe is so easy and delicious with three simple Passover ingredients!
Enjoy, and we will all detox AFTER Passover! Marlene
Though I have to admit that I am partial to my mother in law’s Syrian style Haroset, I love sharing haroset recipes from other communities. Come to think of it, how nice would it be to add a selection of different Harosets from around the world on the table with their own place cards?
Here are some photos that I just gathered for some table top food tagging inspiration….
Enjoy Jennifer Abadi’s Yemenite style Haroset recipe and check out her Passover site HERE.
Thank you Yael from Culinary Kosher! When I asked Yael for the BEST PASSOVER ROAST from her site, she sent me this red wine marinated brick roast recipe, and I immediately knew it was just perfect for The Jewish Hostess readers. Its easy, and I can just tell that it is a juicy and tasty holiday or Shabbat roast recipe. Enjoy! Marlene

Thank you Michelle Safdieh and Vicky Cohen for this delicious lamb and spinach recipe- Im definitely putting this one on my Passover holiday menu! Marlene

My sister in law Grace is a fabulous cook and friend, although she never wants to take credit for it. She is one of the few people I know that will do anything for anyone without being asked to, including dropping off a plethora of last minute perfectly folded Purim costumes for a niece in need, constantly sending gourmet meals to my parents, making me a “surprise” family birthday party, accompanying me on my various business ventures, and too many more to mention. She is a true sister in every sense of the word. Several months ago she made an unbelievable dairy Sunday brunch, and this was just one of the gourmet dishes that she served, which of course would be perfect on a Shavuot, Passover, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, or summer brunch menu. Love u, Grace! Marlene
When I found this recipe on thekitchn, I knew that I would have to test it out for a dairy Passover lunch. Well, it was so easy to whip up and it was so delicious that I decided to double the ingredients for my Passover menu. I also added some table spoons of Osem onion soup mix for extra flavor. There are a lot of eggs in this recipe which really make it puff up so beautifully. If anyone comes up with a low cholesterol version- please let me know! Would love to know if you’ve made any spectacular dishes that you’d like to share with Jewish Hostess readers. Send them to marlene(at)thejewishhostess.com. Happy Holiday! Marlene

Preheat oven to 400ºF. Place the quinoa into a small saucepan and add 2 cups of water. Bring to a boil and then simmer for 15 minutes, covered, or until the water is evaporated. Turn off the heat and let quinoa sit covered for at least one hour, up to 8 hours. While the quinoa is sitting, place the sweet potato cubes into a roasting pan and toss with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil. Bake for 25 minutes, stirring once or twice, or until you can just pierce the cubes with a fork. Set aside.
Place the pine nuts into a small pan over medium heat and cook until lightly toasted, stirring often. Watch carefully so they do not burn. Set aside. In a small bowl, place the remaining two tablespoons olive oil, vinegar, honey, salt, pepper, cumin and cinnamon. Whisk well.
When the quinoa is dry, use a whisk to break apart the grains. Add the vinaigrette and mix with the whisk. Add the sweet potatoes, pine nuts, cranberries and scallions and mix gently. Serve at room temperature.

Stuffed onions, or “mechshe” is a common Shabbat and holiday dish for all Syrian Jews. Traditionally, our grandmas would stuff their squash, tomatoes, carrots, and Spanish onions with fatty beef that they would grind themselves. They would then add in Arborio (short grain) rice, salt, allspice, and cinnamon. A homemade sweet and sour tamarind “ourt” sauce would then be poured on and this yummy concoction would simmer on the fire or in the oven for hours. Well, Victoria Dwek has managed to modernize this centuries old mechshe recipe, plus make it taste fabulous AND healthy. Victoria and Leah Shapirah feature this stuffed onion recipe PLUS 59 more fabulous and easy kosher for Passover recipes in their new cookbook Passover Made Easy. Not only is it beautifully designed, but the innovative recipes have been triple tested and actually have gorgeous FULL COLOR photos for each dish! I would truly send this new take on Passover cooking kosher cookbook as the perfect Passover gift. At $10. what are you waiting for??? Click and buy now! Enjoy! Marlene
“When Leah Schapira and I began working on the side dishes chapter of our newly released book, Passover Made Easy, I knew I absolutely had to borrow inspiration from my heritage and “stuff” something. It wouldn’t be zucchini or eggplant, though, that would be too ethnic for a wider audience. But how about an onion? Leah suggested I make an all-vegetable filling, and I got to work. Most recipes take a few tries to perfect, but this was an instant winner.
I had fun making these because onions are among the easiest vegetables to stuff. They’re also freezer-friendly, so you can prepare this pretty side dish in advance and rewarm before the meal. The ground almonds in the recipe don’t only do a great job of binding the stuffing together — they also taste way better than bread crumbs. The end result is a dainty and flavorful little bite. For a prettier presentation, be sure to select round onions.
You can also use red onions, or a combination of red and white, to give this dish a different look.” -Victoria

My Mom made this marshmallow and nut recipe every single year on Passover. We all looked forward to this special Passover dessert. I look back now and wonder, why did she only made them on Passover?The truth is, you can really make these passover dessert treats all year round but this year, just like my mom, I waited till Passover 2011 to make them again!
