Shabbat Recipe Roundup

Shabbat is here, and time to plan your meals! While some of you might be trying to lighten your cooking these days in honor of the New Year, I know a lot of you are not. So for the non-calorie counting cooks out there, this week’s Shabbat Recipe Roundup is for you.

I saw this recipe for Lemony Chickpea Bruscetta, and my interest was immediately piqued. I would definitely use canned chickpeas instead of dried chickpeas to save myself an extra step and serve it with a large crusty baguette.

What a fantastically easy and healthful one pot dish for an easy Shabbat main dish: Roasted Chicken Legs with Potatoes and Kale.

But if you’re looking for something a little more ambitious or adventurous – try this kosher version of Julia Child’s Boeuf Bourguignon from The Jew and the Carrot which I cannot wait to try! Any recipe that encourages the use of schmaltz is truly a recipe for me. Julia may not approve, but I would serve this over wide egg noodles. Yum.

In the spirit of hearty dishes and schmaltz, I am salivating over this recipe for Duck Fat Potato Galette with Caraway and Sweet Onions.

And for a sweet finish, try these chewy and flavorful Triple Ginger Cookies.

Shabbat Shalom, and happy cooking!
