Strictly speaking, Thanksgiving isn’t a Jewish holiday, but there are lots of ways to infuse your celebration with Jewish meaning – including lots of recipes from ReformJudaism.org. Here are just a few recipes to make for a delicious, Jewishly infused Thanksgiving dinner at home this year.
For the main event, we love Tina Wasserman's Roast Turkey with Vegetables, complete with "Tina's Tidbits" for cooking the bird. Then choose one or more of these warm, autumnal side dishes to accompany it:
- Sweet Potato and Carrot Latkes
- Savory Apple-Kasha Stuffing (Gluten-Free)
- Bread Kugel with Dried Fruit and Sun-Dried Tomatoes (perfect instead of stuffing)
- Vegan Sweet Potato Kugel
- Baked Stuffed Apples
And don't forget your veggies! Instead of a standard side salad, try...
- Roasted Butternut Squash with Apples and Onions
- Vegetarian Couscous
- Curried Lentils and Vegetables
- Tunisian Spiced Carrots
- Butternut Squash in Sweet and Sour Sauce
Finish off your Thanksgiving meal with one of our delicious desserts:
- Pumpkin Mousse
- Classic Apple Crisp
- Sweet Potato/Pumpkin Cazuela (Casserole)
- Dark and Spicy Pumpkin Pie
Oh, and you probably need a great sauce or relish, right? We've got you covered:
