The Passover seder is a sacred meal for Jewish families all over the globe. But if your family is anything like mine, then the food can be completely decadent and anything but health-conscious. Once you've got your seder plate set and the matzo piled high, bring to your table these fresh, healthy dishes that won't have anyone missing the traditional flavors you grew up with. Remember that families follow all different traditions and rules, so read all the ingredients closely to make sure they'll fit at your seder. Here are 15 to try out!
Cucumber Cups With Tapenade
Calorie-conscious friends and family will rejoice. Add a plate of these cucumber cups with spicy tapenade  next to your family's traditional appetizers. Five of these spicy and fresh cups are fewer than 90 calories.
Rainbow Roast Veggies
A chilled rainbow roast veggie salad  is a beautiful and colorful way to bring some chard and other Spring veggies to your family's supper.
Spicy Sweet Potato Salad
This spicy sweet potato salad  is my go-to side dish for all the Jewish holidays. It's light and bright, and it offers a welcome punch of spice to any traditional Passover plate.
A big plate of quinoa-stuffed peppers  is an easy and healthful appetizer to make ahead, before your kitchen gets too crazy.
Creamy Cauliflower Bisque
This dairy-free cauliflower soup  is incredibly rich, creamy, and comforting, making it an ideal addition to your Passover supper. Loaded with fiber and vitamins, it's an immunity-boosting soup that will also support healthy digestion.
Classic Chicken Soup
While matzo ball soup is completely delish, those heavy matzo-meal balls can pack on the calories. Want to revamp the flavors in a healthy way? Take on a recipe for some easy chicken soup  from POPSUGAR Food. Just be sure to use egg noodles or gluten-free noodles that are kosher for Passover.
Beef and Vegetable Stew
Go beyond the traditional Passover brisket, and opt for this much-easier slow-cooked beef stew  that brings tons of nutrient-packed root veggies and fresh, fragrant herbs to your bowl. Instead of using top round roast, keep your bowl kosher with a shoulder roast.
Roasted Leg of Lamb
A lovely leg of lamb is a staple of a Passover seder. POPSUGAR Food's rosemary-roasted lamb  preparation keeps things clean and light. What meat-lover out there wouldn't want something this beautiful on their table?
Chicken Noodle Meatloaf
Put a little twist on your traditional seder fare, and make Healthful Pursuit's recipe for chicken noodle meatloaf . The gluten-free rice noodles are also kosher.
Greens and Quinoa Pie
A greens and quinoa pie  is a perfect option if you're having a meat-free Passover. If your household abides by strict kosher law, use dairy-free cheese or be sure to wait the right amount of time before digging into more meat (it differs depending on your background).
Simple steamed carrots in olive oil and lemon  make for a colorful and tasty Spring side that is also perfect for Pesach.
Traditional recipes for this decadent, sweet dish pile the cream, butter, and sugar on heavy — but this lightened-up version  is an ideal alternative that brings the same nostalgic and comforting flavors. There's still plenty of sugar in this recipe, but more traditional recipes call for more than double this amount. Be sure to use potato starch (instead of cornstarch) to make this recipe kosher for Passover.
Almond Lemon Cookies
For a sweet ending, bake a batch of almond lemon cookies , a crunchy alternative to a traditional macaroon. The coconut bumps up the saturated fat content of most macaroon recipes, but these cookies are loaded with protein and heart-healthy fats.
Flourless Chocolate Cake
Most flourless chocolate cake recipes are loaded with butter, sugar, and more butter, but not this perfectly portioned 100-calorie cake . It doesn't call for one drop of white sugar or butter and brings a surprising vegetable to dessert.
Almond and Coconut Macaroons
Passover macaroons are tasty cookies that are easy to make, are fairly low in sugar, and contain ample protein and fiber. These almond coconut macaroons  offer a nuttier flavor and even crunchier texture.
