Spring holidays are upon us! And while they are festive, they can be very difficult for those with food allergies. Particularly if you have an egg or nut allergy.
Have no fear: Allergy Shmallergy is here to help!
Let’s first discuss Passover as that is the holiday approaching the soonest. Passover is a week-long holiday highlighted by a huge feast marked with tradition called a Seder. Because many families eat according to tradition by avoiding leavened bread, many cooks are improving with matzo this time of year. This becomes a challenge for us egg-free families, since egg is often used as a binder in food containing matzo.
Below is a link to an Egg-Free Matzo Ball recipe I found a few years ago. There’s nothing like Matzo Ball Soup (at Passover or anytime throughout the year), so this recipe comes in VERY handy!
Egg-free eaters, aren’t the only ones who struggle at Passover. Nuts dot several traditional dishes and desserts, including one right on the seder plate: Charoset. The link below also includes a delicious nut-free charoset recipe that your guests will be excited to indulge in.
For an egg-free, nut-free dessert, why not try my favorite Sorbet Pie or some other passover friendly filled pie? I came across this recipe and can’t wait to use it on Monday. I’m thinking Raspberry Sorbet AND Chocolate Mousse Pies…. Mmmm…

I’ll continue to post any allergy-friendly Passover recipes I come across. In the meantime, you get cooking!
