Matzah meal is definitely a staple in our household. We love matzah ball soup, and you need matzah meal to make those fluffy matzah balls all year ’round! We always try to make the healthiest meals possible for our families, so we were very happy to discover that Osem sells whole wheat matzah meal. They sent us a sample, and we just love it!
While you can also use it to make your favorite dishes for Passover or the rest of the year, we decided to have our hand at Passover pancakes. Richie just loves pancakes, and I we often make more nutritious varieties together, so I wanted him to have a healthy version for the holidays. What staple do you like to adapt for Passover for your kids?
