It’s a new year, and I know a time when a lot of people try to lighten up their eating. For the first Shabbat of 2012, I have put together some healthful recipes perfect for wintertime, and perfect for a healthy (and tasty) start of your year.
When blood oranges are in season, I cannot get enough of them! Blood oranges and fennel are a perfect marriage in this Blood Orange, Beet and Fennel Salad.
This Yemenite Soup from The Kosher Foodies looks like a delightful and spicy soup to warm up your January Shabbat table.
Chicken breasts on the bone are a great way to have both a flavorful, and healthful, poultry dish. Try these Chicken Breasts with Pistachio Cilantro Pesto, which would go great along with Honey-Glazed Roasted Root Vegetables and some simple brown rice.
You might also try this Broccolini with Crisp Lemon Crumbs. If you’re serving this with a meat meal, you can just swap out the butter for olive oil.
For a light finish, try this Pomegranate Champagne Sorbet from 365 Scoops.
Happy cooking, and Shabbat Shalom!
