With Passover approaching (April 10-18, 2017), if you are like me you are already planning the menu. Pereg Natural Foods offers a variety of new, all natural, vegan, Non-GMO and Kosher for Passover (OU-P) products that offer versatility and great taste just in time for Passover 2017.
New from Pereg this year is Baby Quinoa (Kañiwa) – Dark reddish-brown in color and about half the size of a tiny quinoa seed, Baby Quinoa cooks up quickly to resemble a smaller version of red quinoa. Unlike regular quinoa, Baby Quinoa doesn’t have saponins, the coating that gives quinoa a somewhat slightly bitter flavor if not rinsed properly. Baby Quinoa is a great source of iron and other important nutrients.
Also available new for Passover is Pereg’s White Quinoa, Quinoa with Mushrooms and Quinoa with Vegetables. White quinoa is great for cold salads such as kale and quinoa with a lemon vinaigrette or quinoa with strawberries and pecans. Experiment as you would with rice and substitute quinoa in stuffed peppers, quinoa cheese casserole and quinoa meatballs.
I always like to bake something for Seder and thanks to Pereg’s new Kosher for Passover flour, available in quinoa, banana, coconut and almond meal gluten free varieties, it’s easier than ever to bake something that everyone will actually enjoy! From cakes and cookies, to pancakes and pizza crust, these Passover flours offer a plethora of delicious recipe options that offer great taste and texture.
