With St. Patricks Day this weekend, I know I should be posting about green foods, or traditional Irish fare. But somehow I’m in an ‘orange’ sort of mood and was drawn to recipes surely rich in beta-carotene.
These Homemade Chicken Kreplach from The Shiksa in the Kitchen are simply mouth watering. I love that you can either serve them fried as an appetizer, or with broth as a soup.
This Shaved Carrot and Pear Salad with Curry Dressing is both fresh and beautiful looking – and a totally different kind of salad to serve at your Shabbat meal.
And for another potential ‘orange’ side dish, check out these simple Coconut Roasted Sweet Potatoes. My favorite part of this recipe is the lime zest – a flavor compliment I would never have thought of on my own, but that really packs a punch.
And for an entree with a little orange flare, try this Roast Chicken with Tangerines – a sweet twist on a classic Friday night roast chicken.
Last but not least of course is dessert. I am seeing s’mores everywhere these days, so this recipe for Shabbat S’mores really caught my eye.
Shabbat Shalom and happy cooking!
