I am so super psyched about my new book Quick & Kosher: Meals in Minutes due out this Chanukah.  So much so that I just can’t hold it in any longer.  As a special gift I’d like to offer you (and all your friends – pass this blog post on!) a sneak peek at my Rosh Hashanah Meals in Minutes menu.

I tried my hardest to incorporate as many of the Rosh Hashanah simanin as possible into the menu.  Simanim are foods whose names suggest a variety of blessings for the New Year.  These include pomegranates, leeks, beets, dates, spinach, honey, apples and carrots – foods you may have been serving year round, but suddenly, they’re in the spotlight, laden with symbolic promises of good things to come.

So here is my super sweet Rosh Hashanah Quick & Kosher: Meals in Minutes menu with links to the full and complete recipes for 3 of my favorite holiday dishes.  We’ll start with a warm and comforting Leek Soup, the star of the show is a sweet and savory dish I like to call Chicken with Apples (serves 4).  Round out your meal with Roasted Beets and Spinach Salad with Pomegranate Dressing (serves 4) and finish it off with Carrot Cupcakes .

What are your favorite Rosh Hashanah recipes? Be sure to drop a line and let me know how you like these new freebies. Happy Sweet New Year!
