Gluten-Free Passover Recipe Roundup 2007

Hello everybody. By request, I have rounded up a diverse array of gluten-free Passover recipes from all over the internet. As you can see from this collection, it is definitely possible to have a delicious and kosher seder free from gluten! None of these recipe include gluten-containing grains (wheat, most oats, rye, barley, kamut, spelt, triticale and their derivatives) and most are also considered non-gebrokts. I've organized this list into categories of foods commonly eaten during the Passover week, especially during the seder. I hope this will help give you some ideas of foods to prepare next week. Feel free to post additional links in the comments!

Other Passover-related links that are of particular interest to gluten-free Jews:
Please note: I haven't gone over all of these with a fine-tooth comb so please double-check to make sure they meet all your dietary requirements. Not all communities or individuals observe the same rules for Passover kashrut. Most of these recipes adhere to Ashkenazi kashrut, which holds that not only chametz must be avoided, but also kitniyot. A few of the recipes do contain kitniyot, so they are suitable only for people who follow Sephardic Pesach kashrut. Use your own judgment, and if you have questions please consult your rabbi.

Just found out my younger sister is allergic to gluten... And ten minutes later I find this site, and especially this post :) My sister was afraid she'd have to miss out on next year's Passover fun!

Would love it if you could find the pancake recipe again. The link is bad.

I'm figuring I could use Oat Matza Meal, Quinoa Flour and Potato Starch and get a pretty good product out of it. Was just looking for other ideas.

Adam - Sorry. This is an old post and links sometimes break. Here is a list of the recipes from the site that had the pancake recipe - They have a bunch of pancake recipes listed, some GF and some not:

I would avoid oat matzo meal for pancakes, as it's too heavy. I would try about 25% quinoa flour to 75% potato starch and include either kosher l'pesach baking powder or whip the egg whites separately until they're stiff to help the pancakes be fluffy. Let me know how it turns out!

I was interested and pleased to see a link to my family's old web site for the Not-Chicken Soup recipe. Like all other web sites, however, that one has disappeared. You can still find this recipe (and the rest of the web site at:
