A staple of many Passover meals is matzah, a thin, cracker-like unleavened bread. Tradition states matzah served during Passover should be made with only water and flour, but year-round versions can include flavoring like onions and garlic.
Relatively low in fat and calories, matzah can be enjoyed in moderation all year in its true form or ground in your food processor and used in everything from pancakes to cupcakes. Matzah comes in unsalted and whole-grain varieties and can be found in most supermarkets.
Matzah meal can be used in kugel, a sweet or savory baked egg dish, which originated with Jewish cultures of Eastern Europe. Using matzah meal in this dish means it can be enjoyed during Passover. Find the whole recipe for Cinnamon-Spiced Carrot Fruit Kugel here.
