Shanah Tovah! Roshashana is here, we’re celebrating the Jewish New Year with all of our favorite seder dishes! These recipes embrace traditional old world foods with 21st century flair, using alternative ingredients and flavors to polish up some favorites.
For Starters: Bright Red Beet Hummus This hummus keeps flavors traditional with deep nutty tahini, bright lemon and savory cumin; all the while forgoing the humble chickpea for the roasted red beet. This simple switch creates a unique flavor profile that will stand out with bright color and bold flavor, while keeping ingredients local and seasonal. Spread it over matzos, (find gluten-free matzos at the Co-op!), toasted challah or even some Naan chips!
Pumpkin Rugelach with Sage and Walnuts A perfect appetizer for the fall season, a flaky crust wraps up our favorite seasonal ingredient, pumpkin! Pastry dough is made with cream cheese for an extra rich crust, while the pumpkin is kept savory with shallots and sage for a truly fall flavor. These are easy to nibble on at a cocktail party alongside wine, beer or a fall cocktail. Keep this recipe around for all of your fall shmoozing and boozing!
For Seder or Supper: Quinoa and Carrot Kugel Noodle Kugel is a seder staple, but why not make a twist on the traditional? Quinoa replaces egg noodles for a nuttier flavor and more varied texture. Matchstick sliced carrots bring a hint of sweetness and color, while caraway seeds add a savory flavor perfect for October.
Eggplant with Buttermilk Sauce This stunningly elegant dish is shockingly easy to prepare, simply roasting eggplant in the oven and whisking together a creamy sauce. The hearty flavor of eggplant is juxtaposed with sweet juicy pomegranate seeds and a creamy buttermilk yogurt sauce. Serve with pita for an appetizer or as a side dish alongside your brisket!
Sauteed Chicken with Grapes Healthy, simple and sweet this recipe is an easy way to make basic chicken breasts something special. Cooked to golden brown in the skillet and simmered in grape puree until perfectly tender. Easy enough to prepare, this dish can make your table look stunning without fuss or muss!
A Sweet Finish: Apple Bourbon Bundt Cake It’s not a celebration without whiskey! Add a little bourbon into your bundt cake for a deliciously smooth dessert. Just classic enough for an elegant event, with just enough spark for an exciting new twist. Start this new year-- and new season--off sweet!
