Rosh Hashanah Menu, Complete with Recipes
Posted on 20th of September, 2011 by Lévana
I couldn’t resist drawing liberally from my Sephardi heritage to make my Rosh Hashanah menu selection. Our holiday dishes as I remember them served in my childhood home and beyond still make my tongue smile, even after all these years. And if all the pre-Rosh Hashanah cooking demos I have been invited to give in and around town are any indication, the feeling is shared by countless Sephardi food enthusiasts! I am on a demo tour, cooking and teaching up a storm, spreading the good word: quick, simple and healthy! Many of these dishes are Gluten-Free without even trying!
Except for two stars born very recently (the carrot date salad and the Makrod), all following dishes are excerpted from my new cookbook, The Whole Foods Kosher Kitchen: Glorious Meals Pure and Simple. Since the whole philosophy of the book was to make even the best and most elegant dishes simple and doable, affordable in every sense of the word, you will be grateful that none of them keeps you slaving in the kitchen, and goes easy on your pocket! So here comes!
No nuts on Rosh Hashanah? No problem! Simply skip them, in any case they only appear in a couple dishes only.
Vegetable and Grain Dishes:
Soba Noodles with Roots
Cabbage Cucumber Apple Slaw
Wild Rice Pilaf with Mushroom and Chestnuts
Zucchini and Brussels Sprouts in Tomato Sauce
Lamb-Stuffed Grape Leaves
Moroccan Minted Carrot Date Salad
