Kosher Couscous for Passover: Seder Substitutes

17 days until passover

Passover is a great holiday, it's fun, family oriented but most of all it can be a lot of work. With all of the eating restrictions sometimes it is hard to find something to eat or serve that everyone will like. I found that there are three secret substitutes that will help you make it through the holiday without missing your favorite non kosher for passover foods.

The first is Cauliflower. It is so versatile and can be used in so many different dishes! Try some of these cauliflower recipes :
