Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish new year, begins this Sunday at sunset! Ring in the Jewish new year with a few incredible dishes that will brighten any family gathering, and impress non-Jewish friends too! 

Keftes De Prasa 

Also known as Sephardic-style leek fritters, these fritters are so addictive and easy to make! Just think of potato latkes, but with leeks instead. You’ll need leeks, eggs and breadcrumbs with a pinch of allspice and cinnamon. Just remember to fry, and serve immediately or it will lose the awesome crispness! Get your recipe here.

Roasted Vegetables

According to Sephardic tradition, each vegetable of this dish is served separately and is properly blessed. Roasted vegetables is the perfect dish to serve, especially for those who prefer to go meatless! Think of fall colors and flavors such as calabaza squash, butternut squash, carrots, sweet potatoes, chickpeas and fava beans. Just remember to soak the fava beans for a few hours before using. Full recipe here.

Instant good vibes! Full recipe here.

Have a great Jewish new year celebration, everyone.
