For many Jews around the world, Passover celebrations will start Friday and continue to April 30.

Like most holidays, Passover is celebrated over a delicious meal with friends and family. But some foods are restricted from this meal.

Passover, which marks the period in which the Jews escaped from slavery in Egypt, forbids the consumption of chametz, a leavener found in grains like wheat, oats, rye, spelt and barley. This is done in tribute to the Jews who were believed to be in such a hurry to escape, they left before their bread had a chance to rise.

Matzo, an unleavened flat bread, is thus the star or many Passover meals.

In the slideshow below, we've rounded up 33 unleavened recipes that are perfect for Passover. From flour-less cakes to classic matzo ball soup, these recipes are perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
