Shabbat Menu Roundup—Comfort Food Edition

For me, February is prime comfort food month, so this Shabbat I’m thinking about yummy comfort foods I can serve to my guests.

Tomato soup is the consummate comfort food, but this recipe from Not Derby Pie looks exciting, even controversial. Can’t wait to try it.

I actually tried making this cheesy pull-apart bread from Beantown Baker last night for a friend and it was a huge success. I bet it would be amazing made with a challah and served with the soup.

Then I’m thinking this artichoke tart with polenta crust from the Wednesday chef, which looks decadent and divine.

For a side, I like these zucchini and carrot fritters I saw in The Kitchn. Like healthier latkes! And who doesn’t like latkes?

And then for dessert, these Dark Chocolate Brownies with Raspberry Goat Cheese Swirl have stolen my heart, and I don’t think I’ll be able to recover until I make them and wallow in them for a nice long time. Amiright?

Happy cooking!

Shabbat Recipe Roundup

Another week, another round of recipe ideas for your Shabbat table.

Last month I had the most delicious Caesar Brussel Sprout Salad at Almond in Bridgehampton, New York. Ever since I’ve been looking for a similar recipe, but in the meantime, I came across this Food Network Brussel Sprout Salad with a light dressing, and dried fruit. If you’re making this with a meat meal, just leave out the manchego cheese.

This Citrus and Rosemary Roast Chicken recipe is pretty similar to my own go-to chicken recipe for Shabbat dinner. My favorite tip? Marinate the chicken on Thursday night in a plastic bag, and let sit overnight in the fridge. By the time you roast your Shabbat chicken, it will be infused with flavor, and super moist.

I love roasted potatoes, but sometimes you want something a little more special. This “Potatoes a la Bakery” has a wow factor, yet is super simple to prepare. Just replace the butter in the recipe with olive oil, or my favorite, duck fat (chicken fat would work great too).

My mother-in-law made this recipe for Roasted Fennel with Olives and Garlic recently and it was delicious!

For a sweet finish, try some rich, chewy Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies from Couldn’t Be Pareve.
