Shabbat Recipe Roundup

I don’t know about you, but after indulging in hot dogs, potato salad and other fattening goodies I need to detox for a few days. This week’s Shabbat recipe round up is chocked full of fruits and veggies to give your bloated belly a bit of a reprieve.

Eleven Madison Park is currently recognized as the best restaurant in Manhattan, and Food 52 has the restaurant’s recipe for Strawberry Gazpacho – a fun and seasonal twist on the traditional Spanish cold tomato soup.

Yes, yes veggie skewers are an easy and pretty way to serve some extra vegetables for a dinner or party. But these Lemon Pesto Vegetable Skewers from The Shiksa are truly a step above – packed with fresh flavor from lemon and herb pesto.

I love fennel particularly for its refreshing, distinctive flavor. If you also love fennel then this recipe for Roasted Fennel with Tomatoes will make a perfect easy side dish.

Chicken thighs are underrated for their flavor and versatility not to mention affordability! For an easy and flavorful main dish try this Roasted Chicken Thighs with Artichoke Panzanella.

Just because you’re detoxing from a holiday barbecue doesn’t mean you can’t still have a sweet finish. Try this Rhubarb Pie made with fresh strawberries and rhubarb from The Kosher Foodies.

Shabbat Shalom and happy cooking!

Keep on Noshing
