10 Great Recipes for Rosh Hashanah

September 17, 2009

Let me be frank. I am one Jewish-food-lovin' girl. I love matzoh brie, adore kugel, devour challah, and admittedly have a slight addiction to rugelach. I even have a borderline unhealthy fondness for gefilte fish! Though I'm an enthusiastic eater of this fine cuisine the successful preparation of most dishes has eluded me. My matzoh balls are floaters, not sinkers. And my baking abilities are, well, let's just say sub-par, so the beautifully browned and braided challah that I dream to make never happens under my watch.

But I will try. And with the help from some of our fabulous Foodista contributors I just may succeed! Here are some of their wonderful recipes:

Honey Cake on Foodista

Pomegranate Apricot Brown Rice on Foodista

Spinach Salad With Pomegranate Seeds on Foodista

Carrot Tzimmes on Foodista

Challah on Foodista

Hamantashen on Foodista

Kasha Varnishkes on Foodista

Herring Appetizer on Foodista

Orange Beets on Foodista

Pom Noodle Kugel on Foodista

Sweet Potato Soup on Foodista

Sheri -
Great to have the recipes in one place - for Rosh Hashanah you need a round barches (challah) to make sure the year will be round and good and add raisins.

The most basic Rosh Hashanah recipe for anyone with little time:

1 Apple - cut in pieces

Dip apple in honey; eat.
