20+ Kosher for Passover Healthy Meal Ideas

Last Updated on March 29, 2021

Passover is just one week away, so I’m rounding up 20+ healthy passover meal ideas to incorporate this holiday! These dishes are simple to make, and use minimal ingredients- something I try to focus on during these 8 days.

Most of these recipes are vegetarian/vegan friendly, with a few fish options as well. As a sephardic Jew, we do incorporate Kitniyot (a Hebrew term that groups the foods that Ashkenzi Jews avoid during passover, including rice, legumes, and seeds), so be sure to modify as needed if there are any foods you don’t eat during Passover.

Whether you’re observing the holiday or not, these naturally gluten-free recipes are a delicious way to incorporate more healthy meals during the week!

Common substitutions to make

Under each dish, I specified what to substitute within the recipe to make it passover friendly, so be sure to read through it! Some common substitutions you can make are:

  • Use Matzah meal in place of breadcrumbs
  • Almond butter in place of peanut butter to omit kitniyot if needed
  • Use imitation soy sauce in place of coconut aminos, depending on which guidelines you follow
  • Use quinoa in place of rice to omit kitniyot

Main Dishes

1. Apricot Salmon

Sweet & Tangy Apricot Salmon is a delicious simple main to serve for the holiday nights or during the week! Serve it with your favorite starch, like rice, quinoa or potatoes, and a roasted veggie on the side.

2. White Bean Burgers

These White Bean Burgers are a great make ahead option, and are perfect over a salad! Just swap the breadcrumbs with matzah meal to make them passover friendly.

7. Spinach & Feta Salmon Burgers

Salmon burgers are always stocked in my freezer, and these Spinach and Feta Salmon Burgers are a must make! Serve them with roasted potatoes, or your favorite salad.

8. Sweet Potato Feta Bowls

Flavorful and delicious Sweet Potato Feta Bowls are a great lunch prep for the week. I top them with a spicy harissa tahini sauce, and they’re so good and satisfying! You can leave out the dairy if you’re dairy-free, and use quinoa in place of brown rice!

9. Stuffed Peppers

I grew up eating Stuffed Peppers, and they always hit the spot for something cozy. I made these with a vegan meat substitute, but you can leave that out completely or swap real meat! If you don’t eat rice, quinoa would work well.

10. Maple Tahini Tofu

I love this plant-based Maple Tahini Tofu for a flavorful weeknight meal. I serve it with garlic green beans and rice for a perfectly balanced dinner.

11. Lentil Meatballs

These vegan Lentil Meatballs are a great freezer-friendly food to prep for the week. You can serve them with zucchini noodles, or any passover friendly pasta you enjoy. Just be sure to swap the breadcrumbs for matzah meal!

12. Thai Peanut Salad

This Thai Peanut Salad is one of my absolute FAVORITES to throw together at the end of a busy week. You can use any veggies you have lying around, and top it with your favorite proteins. You can swap almond butter for peanut butter to make this kitniyot free.

13. Tuna Patties

Super simple Tuna Patties are an easy lunch idea to make that come together so quickly. You can easily double the recipe, and serve them over your favorite salad or veggie side dish. Just replace the breadcrumbs with matzah meal!

14. Black Bean Burger

Black Bean Burgers have been a favorite of mine for so long. They’re spicy, simple to make, and are a delicious freezer-friendly option. Use matzah meal as your breading to make these Passover friendly!

15. Asian Salmon Burger

Swap the buns for matzah in these flavorful Asian Salmon Burgers! They’re a fun way to switch up your fish game, and pair perfectly with a side of spicy slaw. You can leave out the mustard and sesame seeds to make this without kitniyot, and use matzah meal as your breading!

16. Sushi Salad

Sushi salad platters have seriously become a staple during our family lunches. You can use short grain rice in place of sushi rice, and leave out the crumb topping to make these Passover friendly.

17. Shakshuka

Shakshuka is the perfect meal to make for breakfast, lunch and even dinner. Serve it with fresh veggies and a side of matzah!

18. Egg Mufins

Veggie filled Egg Muffins are a great option to keep on hand for a quick protein packed breakfast or snack.
