Sukkot Recipes

As Sukkot is a harvest festival, Sukkot menus typically include dishes with plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables. Stuffed vegetables are often served for this Jewish holiday. Some say the stuffed foods, like small cornucopia, represent a bountiful harvest. Given the colorful surroundings of the sukkah and the harvest theme, I like to serve a colorful fruit salad for dessert. These kosher food recipes can enhance your family's celebration of Judaism's Feast of Tabernacles.
Traditional Chicken Soup
Chicken soup is a traditional Jewish holiday food. On Sukkot, I serve it with potato kreplach instead of with matzah balls.
Easy Kosher Chicken Pot Pie
Chicken pot pie is a great way to use chicken left-over from making soup. I use filo dough so the recipe is "easy", and I use pareve margarine to make the recipe "kosher."
Meat Stuffed Peppers
Stuffed foods are typically served for Sukkot. I find stuffing peppers much easier than stuffing cabbage leaves. And this dish is a colorful addition to the Sukkah's table.
Child-Pleasing Chicken Shnitzel
Unlike all the vegetables and stuffed foods typically served for Sukkot, chicken shnitzel is a sure-fire child-pleaser. I learned to make chicken shnitzel after immigrating to Israel, but my native Israeli husband still makes it better than me.
Israeli Couscous Stew
Since Biblical times, couscous has been popular in North Africa. Couscous, sometimes called Moroccan pasta, is a tiny pasta made from 12 semolina flour. Almost any stew can be served with couscous, but I like to serve this couscous stew - with pumpkin, onions, zucchini, carrots, and cabbage - for Sabbath and Jewish holiday meals.
Israeli Salad
Israeli salad works anytime, but I especially like to serve it in the Sukkah.
