Gluten Free Passover: Almond Flour is the key!

This is one of my favorite holidays now being Gluten-free.  I used to dread this week, where we had to suffer and eat differently, but now many items are kosher for Passover AND gluten-free!  So we have much more variety to choose from!!

I did find the best Matzah at a reasonable price is Yehuda's GF Matzah where it tastes pretty similar and is not extremely pricey.  I've found it at Whole Foods and we've also ordered it online from Amazon.

The best gluten-free Matzah Ball Soup recipe is from Elana's Pantry or can be found in her book The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook, which uses almond flour instead of matzah meal.  This flour is great...really flavorful and actually tastes very close to real matzah balls!

I'm also experimenting this weekend to make a Spinach Pita that my family has made for years at the Seder.  Replacing the matzah for gluten-free matzah and the matzah meal with corn meal...we'll see how it goes!  If it's successful, I'll post the recipes and some pics.  Happy holidays!
