Tu Bishvat Foods

Recipes for the Holiday

On Tu Bishvat it is traditional to eat fruit associated with the land of Israel. The “classical” fruits are the seven species described in Deuteronomy 8:8, “a land of wheat and barley, of vines [grapes], figs, and pomegranates, a land of olive trees and honey [dates].” But today many people celebrate the holiday by cooking with all kinds of fruit. Here are some recipes you can make for your own Tu Bishvat celebration:

Chocolate Fondue
Fruit Souplemon cake
Banana Cake
Lemon Lavendar Cake

Lemon and Almond Semolina Cake
Lemon tart

Orange and Maple Baked Tofu
Persimmon and Pistachio Cupcakes
