For a super-simple and passover-friendly side, brush sheets of matzo with good olive oil and sprinkle them with flaky sea salt, freshly ground pepper, earthy thyme, and zesty sumac. A quick trip to the oven to crisp them up and bloom the spices and they are ready to be served alongside other family favorites.
