eat, y' so skinny

haggadah slightly rewritten from the one I've been using the last two years

spring vegetable soup with matzo balls (the latter from a mix, I'm not proud, they come out fluffy that way)

mango-date haroset (very successful)

Ashkenazic haroset (the old standby)

Sephardic blood-orange and olive salad (to which I added dark brown heirloom tomatoes and watermelon radishes; Wendy did the prep on this one)

stuffed Savoy cabbage leaves with tomato-wine sauce (rather labor-intensive; glad to have done it once, not about to repeat the experiment)

kinpira gobo with nettles (not exactly a traditional Passover food, but hey, I had some burdock and some nettles around, what was I going to do? this, I think, was the unexpected hit of the evening--basically I just made straightforward kinpira gobo with burdock, carrots and rather a lot of ginger, plus 2 tsp. of chili paste, and then at the point where you let the burdock braise for 20 min. I added the nettles)

Moroccan beet salad (note to self for future iterations of this recipe: blanch the red onion for a minute before adding it so it doesn't overpower the sweetness of the beets with onion kapow)

Israeli eggplant salad

rhubarb and carrot tzimmes (sounded like a good idea, smelled a little odd when it was cooking, conveniently forgotten and left in fridge during meal)

nine wonderful guests

ow.

Excellent,
The only thing missing it appears, was Quinoa,
As it has been anounced a non-grain and so - suitable for Passover,
It appears everyone had Quinoa on the Seder table this year...
