A Delicious Passover

A Delicious Passover

Choice Passover recipes from the best-selling Kinnereth Cookbook.


The following recipes have been taken from the best-selling Kinnereth Cookbook. The Kinnereth Chapter of Hadassah WIZO in Canada took it upon themselves to write an all encompassing kosher cookbook. It has been a tremendous success and has been sold throughout the world. All proceeds go to WIZO services in Israel. We have been very proud of our endeavors and are happy to share a few choice recipes. More to come! If you would like to order a copy of the Kinnereth Cookbook, please email

Brownie Meringues -- My kids' favorite.

These cookies are a hit during Passover and all year round. I omit the nuts and it works fine.

2 egg whites
Dash of salt
1/2 teaspoon vinegar     2ml
1/2 teaspoon vanilla     2ml
1/2 cup sugar     125ml
6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate melted and cooled     170g
3/4 chopped walnuts     175 ml

Preheat oven to 350° F (180° C). Beat egg whites with salt, vinegar and vanilla until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar beating to stiff peaks. Fold in chocolate. Drop from teaspoon onto greased pan.

Bake 10 min.


Frozen Lemon Torte
This dessert is a refreshing end to any meal.

2-3 Packages "Kosher for Passover" lady fingers (24-36)     2-3
5 Eggs     5
3/4 cup Lemon juice     175 ml
grated rind of one lemon
1 1/4 cups White sugar     300 ml
1 pint whipping cream     500 ml
4 Tbs. Sugar     60 ml

Line bottom and sides of buttered 9" (22.5 cm) springform pan with ladyfingers. In top of double boiler, place 5 yolks and 2 whites. Beat together until smooth. Add lemon juice, rind and sugar, and beat lightly. Cook until thick, stirring constantly. Cool. Fold in cream, which has been whipped. Pour into prepared pan. Freeze at least 5 hours. Beat remaining 3 whites with 4 tablespoons (60 ml) sugar until stiff. Spread on cake. Place under broiler briefly until lightly browned. Return to freezer. Remove one hour before serving.

* Substitute non-dairy whip when serving meat.

Rosemary Butternut Squash Bisque

This is a great change from Chicken Soup.

2 medium butternut squash (or any squash reeds and fibers scooped out)
6 cups chicken soup
1 Tablespoon fresh rosemary or 1 teaspoon dried
2 teaspoon grated orange zest
1 teaspoon salt
Freshly ground pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 375°. Place the squash on a baking sheet and bake for approx. 30 minutes.

Transfer to a large saucepan and add chicken soup, rosemary and orange zest. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes.

Process in food processor until smooth, add salt & pepper. Delicious!

AMEN to that ! To many ppl don’t and won’t get involved to help others and yet they sure want help when they’re in need. What is so unbelievable is that the ones who come to offer help are the ones that would be considered the “least” of ppl in society. Crazy!!! The ones who have the most are always the ones who give the least but they’ll sure remind you to give and be generous.

Looking for a recipe

A teacher I once worked with made a dish that involved baking an eggplant for a long time to get it to sauce/chutney consistency and it was combined with cooked tomatoes. Maybe onions but not sure. All i know is that she made it for a Jewish holiday as a dip? Does anyone have any idea what its called and how to make it?

My mom uses a large eggplant and combines it in a tasty red spaghetti like sauce with cooked pasta and lots of mushrooms its so tasty i dont have the recipe right now but its a knock out and makes a large pot great for dinner parties or pot lucks.. everyone gobbles it up.. Do you need the actual recipe? I can get that if you like

No ladyfingers

Does anyone know a substitute for ladyfingers? They really are too expensive for me to buy, but the lemon torte sounds so good.
