Vegetarians mix Mideast with Europe at Passover

Roasted vegetables with tomato sauce.

Karoline Boehm Goodnick

Roasted vegetables with tomato sauce.

For Passover, these vegetarian entrees are subtly flavored with a Sephardic-style spice mixture of cumin, coriander, and cinna­mon, and combine elements ofthe Middle East, Spain, and Turkey.

Roast carrots, potatoes, red onion, and zucchini with the spices, and serve with a piquant tomato sauce seasoned with crushed red pepper, saffron, and paprika. Garnish the dish with a nut grem­olata of almonds, lemon, and parsley.


The next day, whisk eggs, stir in leftover roast vegetables, and top with a crunchy matzo cracker-Parmesan crust.

Serve this frittata with some of the tomato sauce for a satisfying Passover breakfast, lunch, or supper.
