These 25 Hanukkah dishes will help you celebrate the festival of light with friends and family. By: Text by: Hannah Klinger
Hanukkah, the weeklong festival of light, is a time for family and friends to get together, exchange gifts, gamble with the dreidel for coveted chocolate coins, and of course, eat. Here, we offer entrees, sides, and desserts to mix and match for the perfect holiday menu. Kosher law prohibits serving meat and milk in the same meal—all the options here are dairy-free or come with ideas for substitutions.
Forget your aunt’s boiled shoe leather brisket, this brisket is simmered until meltingly tender in tomatoes and kalamata olives. With only 5 ingredients, it’ll be a go-to favorite.
The bite of horseradish in the sour cream is a perfect contrast for the sweet carrot and parsnip in this latke variation, but skip it if you prefer a strictly kosher menu that doesn’t mix meat and milk.
