Break Out of the Ordinary with New Recipes for Passover This Year
Passover means many different things to people across the Jewish diaspora. However, one thing we all have in common is Passover as a time for family.
And there is no better way to bond as a family than joining together in the kitchen to make a home-cooked meal. It is an opportunity to make memories that will last forever as we reminisce on the past, are thankful for the present, and plan for the future.
Ahead of this holy festival, we've put together a list of our favorite recipes from Dare to Be Different founder Robin Jemal. Whether you're a seasoned chef or a novice in the kitchen, you'll find something for your family amongst these twists on the typical.

Vegetable Pizza with Spicy Mayo
Pizza…during Passover!? That’s right! Vegetable pizza made with Dare to Be Different Cauliflower Crusts is completely kosher and completely delicious. There is no dairy and no meat in this pizza, but it’s certainly not lacking in flavor.
The key to this super snack loaded up with tomatoes, peppers, chickpeas, and more is the spicy mayo topping. Mayonnaise—despite its dairy-like appearance—is made mainly from egg yolks, making it a great spread during Passover and for those who keep kosher year round. If we’ve said it once, we’ve said it a million times: we like to do things a little differently. That’s why we add in a good helping of sriracha for a complex flavor profile. With this spicy mayo topping, you won’t even realize there isn’t any cheese on this vegetarian pie.
Scrambled Egg Broccoli Crisps
Speaking of eggs, if you’re looking for a kosher breakfast (and your regular bagel and schmear doesn’t make the cut during Passover), try topping a Dare to Be Different Broccoli Crisp with a portion of scrambled eggs. Garnish with cherry tomatoes and a sprinkling of basil for a treat that looks as good as it tastes.

Shallot and Pesto Broccoli Crust Pizza
This recipe for a sublime shallot and pesto broccoli crust pizza calls for mozzarella cheese. Now, not all dairy products are kosher—especially during Passover. All ingredients and equipment need to be kosher, including originating from a kosher animal. Historically, this was not the easiest thing to achieve, but recently kosher dairy options are expanding. In fact, you can order kosher mozzarella cheese and other kosher dairy products online!
It may be a little bit of extra effort (and not appropriate for certain Jewish diaspora populations), but trust us, if you can make this pizza happen, it’s worth it!
