Recipes to make to celebrate Purim
Purim is here! Get ready for exciting celebrations including eating, drinking, and dressing up in costumes. Today, many celebrate Queen Esther and her heroic uncle, Mordechai, who prevented Haman, the wicked prime minister, from convincing Persia’s King Ahasuerus, to slay the Jewish people.
There are a ton of delicious recipes to make. Here are a couple of ideas of recipes to make to kick start your cooking process:
-Traditional Challah Bread: Traditionally, challah bread is braded into a crown shape for luck and prosperity.
-Apricot Hamantaschen: Traditionally, Hamantaschen pastries are served in symbolism of Haman’s hat during family Purim celebrations as well as tucked into gift baskets.
-Bean soup: Queen Esther was a well known vegetarian. She ate mostly fruit, vegetable, and beans for protein. Celebrate Queen Esther by making a hearty bean soup.
-Potato and Spinach Latkes: These delicious, traditional latkes will be a perfect appetizer or side dish to your feast.
-Cornish Hens with Wild Rice and Apple Galze: This elegant dish will make you feel like you are sitting with King Achashverosh himself.
Reminder to everyone who is celebrating to be safe, drink responsibly, and never drink and drive. Happy Purim!
