Matzah can be more than a holiday food

Traditional matzah, the thin flatbread, is made simply from flour and water. It is a symbolic food at Passover dinners: according to biblical history, there was no time to wait for the bread to rise during the Israelites’ hurried exodus from Egypt. These days you can find whole-wheat, egg and onion, reduced-sodium and organic matzahs.

Outside of Passover, matzahs can be tasty low-fat snacks when topped with a slice of low-fat cheese, bean dip, peanut butter or salsa; whole wheat and reduced sodium versions are healthy choices. One matzah square has about the same number of calories as a slice of bread.

Today’s Health-e-Recipe for Matzah Brie is similar to French toast and is delicious with a bit of all-fruit preserves or maple syrup. This recipe is only one of many ways to make Matzah Brie – but AICR’s Test Kitchen found it to be excellent. Click here to subscribe to our weekly Health-e-Recipe.
