Think of it as a a delicious challenge! These vegetarian kosher for Passover recipes will keep you motivated throughout the holiday, and hopefully become spring staples in your kitchen repertoire.

Potato and Vegetable Frittata
This baked egg dish is hearty enough to eat for dinner, easy enough to make when you're tired of cooking, and flexible enough to be made with whatever veggies and cheese you have left in your fridge. Delicious hot, cold, or room temperature, this frittata is also packable as a kosher for Passover lunch.
Beet Salad with Goat Cheese
Restaurant-worthy and totally kosher for passover, this salad adds walnuts for crunch, goat cheese for zing and creaminess, and is dressed in a homemade vinaigrette you'll likely crave all year round.
Spicy Butter Zoodles
Turkish Eggs (Cilbir)
Poached or fried eggs work perfectly atop this spicy yogurt sauce. The recipe recommends some bread for dipping, but we've never seen a piece of matzah runny eggs didn't like. Garnish with fresh herbs to add another layer of flavor and color.
Easy Low-Carb Cauliflower Mac 'n Cheese
Cut cauliflower subs in for noodles in this dish that's keto-approved. We suggest making an extra batch of cheese sauce to drizzle on more roasted, steamed, or blanched veggies throughout Passover.
Roasted Leeks with Eggs
Ooh la la! This recipe straight out of a French bistro is packed with protein and nutrients and will totally wow any guests over Passover. Or really, anytime.
Sheet Pan Ratatouille
Served as a side or main dish, this sheet pan ratatouille is easier than the original and is 100% perfect for passover. Use leftovers as a matzah pizza topping.
Sylvia's Easy Greek Salad
While most salads are kosher for Passover, few feel meal-worthy or satisfying. This vegetarian salad is both.
French Spring Soup
Who knew the French did vegetarian Passover so well? This soups takes advantage of the seasonal produce bounty, adds cream (and rice, if you're comfortable) to make a special sippable dish.
Chia Pudding with Strawberry Puree
Chia seeds are an unsung hero of Passover, adding texture to dishes and absorbing whatever flavors you put them in. This pudding builds on almond milk as a base, and is a fantastic breakfast or mid-day snack.
Ginger Veggie Stir-Fry
This creamy Indian stew brings so many new layers of flavor to a weeknight Passover meal. Thanks to the starchy potatoes, no sides are necessary with this korma, but it's also delicious with cauliflower rice, quinoa, or even just matzah instead of naan.
Frozen (or canned) artichoke hearts are the key to this easy vegetarian recipe that's almost worth its own holiday! Dried herbs work well for this, but try adding a few fresh ones to amp up your dish.
