Celebrating Passover can be hard if you’re living a paleo lifestyle. If you’ve struggled finding paleo options for your seder, here are over 50 dishes for a delicious paleo Passover!
Out of all the Feasts in the year, Passover is by far my favorite. The history and redemption celebrated in it are so rich and beautiful. And then there’s the food… You really can’t go wrong with a leg of lamb, some charoset, and a little stack of mazto.
Though I’ve always been gluten-free during our Passover seders (you can find a gf menu here), the past two years I’ve been grain-free too. So it seemed appropriate to share the delicious paleo dishes I’ve found with y’all! Whether you need a great entree, a paleo side, or a grain-free matzo recipe, I’ve got you covered.
So set the table, get your haggadah ready, and dig in!
