What I’m Cooking for Shabbat

I am actually really excited about our Shabbat dinner tonight. I am trying out some new recipes, and experimenting with some gluten-free dishes now that my sister is on a gluten free and dairy free diet. My idea of Hell is a world where I couldn’t eat bread or dairy desserts.

So what’s on deck for this week’s Shabbat menu?

When I saw this recipe for Indian Barbecue Chicken, I knew I had to make it! Instead of using chicken breasts, I am going to make a whole roasted chicken and then serve the barbecue sauce on the side.

My sister has decided she is going to make some Shaved Zucchini Noodles with Kale Pesto. I am eager to see how they turn out. While searching for recipes I also came across this recipe from Whole Food Diary for Zucchini Spaghetti with Roasted Tomatoes and Kale Pesto. It looks incredible, gluten free or not. This recipe has also inspired me to look into buying a “spiralizer” to make cool, uniform veggie pasta!

I have been drooling over this recipe from Zoe Bakes for Citrus Angel Food Cake with Peaches, but I think it is going to have to wait a little while. Frown.

Instead I decided to make this recipe from Whole Foods for non-dairy Rice Pudding, made with coconut milk and cinnamon. I also added a tsp of vanilla extract and star anise for a little extra punch. It smells divine and I can’t wait to serve it to my sister.

Shabbat Shalom and happy cooking!

Keep on Noshing
