Gluten-Free Matzo with Pickled Lettuce
Whether you know this unleavened bread as Matzo, Matza or Matzah, this delicious, homemade, cracker-like alternative to bread is a welcome change. The pickled lettuce creates a light pleasant contrast and studies show that vinegar can help diabetes by keeping blood sugar levels stable.
Matzo’s history is an integral part of the Jewish culture; when Jewish people were enslaved by Egypt’s Pharaoh, God sent 10 plagues to punish the Egyptians until finally they agreed to free Moses and his people. The Jews had to leave their homes in haste because the Pharaoh changed his mind, consequently they didn’t have time to prepare the bread properly and had to bake the mixture of flour and water which resulted in a hard flat bread; Matza was a happy mistake. Jewish people remember the Exodus by not eating any products made with Yeast etc for one week at Passover, but Matzo is also enjoyed by many cultures throughout the year.
