All you need for a delicious gluten-free Passover celebration! Everything from main dishes, sides, charosets, and desserts! All 100% gluten-free and kosher.
Passover is upon us! For those of you who aren’t familiar with this special day, Passover is celebrated as a remembrance of God delivering the Israelites from their slavery in ancient Egypt.
After over 400 years of living as foreign slaves in the land, God showed the Pharaoh 10 plagues (or wonders or signs) to prove that He is God and Pharaoh was not. The last and most devastating sign was the death of every firstborn son living in a house where the doorway was not covered by the blood of a lamb (a picture of the Messiah).
As the Israelites prepared to leave Egypt after this last sign, God instructed them to eat the lamb whose blood they just spread over their doors with bitter herbs and unleavened bread, since they don’t have time to wait for the bread to rise. After Pharaoh released the Hebrews, God told them to have a feast at the beginning of every year to remember this time: a Passover meal of roasted meat, bitter herbs, and unleavened bread.
There’s definitely more to the story than that, but you get the general idea. If you’re interested in knowing more, you can read it in the Bible in Exodus chapters 5-13.
Even though my family and I are not Jewish, we have been celebrating Passover for three years now. The symbolism it holds is beautiful and rich for believers in Jesus as the Messiah, who sacrificially gave himself as our Passover lamb!
For those of you who celebrate gluten-free, some of my blogger friends and I have compiled a list of some delicious dishes for your feast.

We are Christians with some Jewish heritage and find lots of meaning in celebrating Passover with our Jewish relatives. We do not need a gluten-free diet, but as I ate the matzohs this year I was wondering if it’s possible to make gluten-free matzohs. Thanks for sharing your knowledge!

Glad to share, Chellie! Passover is a wonderfully rich and symbolic feast – it’s been a blessing to learn as we celebrate! Thank you so much for stopping by!
Please don’t do this!! I am Jewish and I was just trying to find meals to eat during the 8 day long tradition of keeping kosher for Passover. Here’s an article as to why you shouldn’t https://www.heyalma.com/why-are-christian-passover-seders-a-thing/ . Next time just go to a Jewish person’s Seder.
Thank you for sharing, Ethel. Your thoughts on the matter are important to me, because I love and respect God’s chosen people. You have a blessed and beautiful heritage!
As for the recipes here, they’re all kosher, even though not all the people who wrote the recipes are Jewish (though quite a few of them are), so you can still use them during the Feast of Unleavened Bread.
If you are at all interested in why my family has chosen to celebrate the Feasts, you can email me at any time. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. I’d love to talk with you about it!
I hope you have a blessed Feast as you draw closer to the One who created you and loves you.
