The Jewish culture is filled with culinary revelations that we love making all year long. There are some traditional Jewish recipes, however, that stand out because they taste just like Grandma’s recipes. Whether it’s brisket that melts in your mouth, matzo ball soup that soothes your soul, or sweet rugelach that you crave all year, there are some amazing dishes to try. Test out these recipes for the last nights of Hanukkah to impress your guests with your best kosher Hanukkah meal yet!
Garlic Potato Kale Cakes
This latke recipe combines everything we love about potato pancakes: a crunchy, greasy exterior with a garlic potato filling that’s enhanced by scattered pieces of crispy kale. These latkes are also completely vegan, making them a great dish to serve to the entire family. Keep it vegan with an applesauce topping, instead of sour cream, so you can have kosher brisket at your dinner!
Matzo Ball Soup with Black Garlic
Matzo ball soup is always a safe bet with anyone keeping kosher. Plus, it tastes amazing. This soothing soup is filled with celery and carrots, like a traditional chicken noodle soup, but is then graced with the presence of fluffy matzo balls for an amazing dish.
This noodle kugel recipe combines cottage cheese, sour cream, cinnamon, and egg noodles for a traditional delicious casserole. Make sure there’s no meat if this noodle kugel recipe is served, since you can’t mix meat and dairy if you are trying to keep kosher.
