Our Sukkot Menu Plan 2023

I realize that I haven’t shared our Sukkot menu plan for a few years, so I wanted to quickly share what I’ll be making for my favorite chag of the year.

Remember: I’m in Israel, so only one day of yomtov!

Friday night / Erev Sukkot / Shabbat

13 people

Vegetarian Mushroom Barley Soup

  • Sima Bitton’s Jeweled Rice
    I made this for Rosh Hashana and it was INSANELY good and flavorful! Highly recommend. Let me know if you need help translating the recipe.
  • Mini carrot kugel muffins
    I’m probably going to use this recipe
  • Green salad
  • Roasted Green beans with sautéed onions
    I made a huge batch of onions while cooking for RH, and I froze them in muffins tins — then popped them out and frozen them in a ziploc. I take out two or three “muffins” of onions and just warm them up in the dish with the beans on the plata. They taste fresh!
  • Apple crisp with easy pareve ice cream

Sukkot / Shabbat Lunch

7 people

  • Sweet challah (see notes above)
  • Creamy Dill Gazpacho (the recipe looks weird, I know, but it is SO good!)
  • Build-Your-Own-Fajita “Bar”
    • Chicken strips (I’ll share my marinade recipe with you soon – I just have to write it up)
    • Steak strips
    • Tri-color peppers & onions
    • Homemade salsa
    • Black beans
    • Cilantro lime rice
    • Guacamole
    • Tortillas
  • Duncan Hines Peanut Butter Rice Krispy Brownies (These are insane! LMK if you want me to share the recipe)
  • Cut Fruit – Melon, Mango, Grapes
