I was thrilled that the HH and I were invited to two seders this year (sorry, Girls).  But after being delighted at my friends’ generosity, I panicked when I realized that most Passover food, besides being meat and poultry-heavy, is also full of eggs and gluten (not to mention sugar and honey)!  Immediately, I decided to bring something along that I could eat–and that everyone else could enjoy, too. 

I was surprised at how many DDD recipes are Passover-friendly (no grain, no gluten, no leavening, no beans or legumes, and a few other restrictions).  Here’s a little roundup for those of you who follow Passover traditions (and even those who don’t!) and are looking for something delicious and healthy to cook up.

Mum, maybe we can’t come to the seder, but would you mind bringing home some leftovers?  That kale salad is way more tasty than this kong.”
