Spiced Up Meatless Recipes *Giveaway*

This year Tisha B’av falls out on July 16th, 2013. During the 9 days leading up to the fast it is a custom to refrain from meat. A meatless menu for the 9 days can keep you busy with pizza (we have 100), pasta and potatoes.  And if that’s you’re thing and you’re OK with it then may I recommend my Peach and Arugula Pizza, My Light Fettuccine Alfredo, and my Colorful Mashed Potatoes featuring Gold’s Healthy Horseradish and Wasabi Sauce.  But if you’d like to try something different this year and spice up your meatless recipe repertoire then I have two new dishes just for you.

Peach and Arugula Pizza

My Caraway Noodle Cakes with Red Cabbage and Horseradish Sour Cream are totally from another planet.  Yes I know it’s still pasta but not in the traditional Baked Ziti or Creamy Dreamy Pink Linguine sense.  Ever since eating my first scallion pancake when I was 15, the summer I worked as a secretary for my dad’s law firm (there was a Chinese restaurant in the building), I became totally obsessed with all kinds of savory pancakes.

Sesame Scallion Lomein Pancakes

I’ve made Lo Mein Scallion Pancakes, Wild Rice Pancakes,  and now these Caraway Noodle Cakes.  Every bite really must be enjoyed with the Horseradish Sour Cream for the full fabulous effect.  I happen to be a big believer in mixing horseradish into lots of condiments, BBQ sauce, ketchup, dressing and my sour cream.  I love a little heat and spicy foods speed up your metabolism so join me and give me an “H” for horseradish.

Nut Crusted Salmon with Creamy Chrain Sauce

The other recipe I promised you comes from Australia via Woodmere courtesy of my dear friend Naomi Nachman, aka the Aussie Gourmet.  Her Nut Crusted Salmon with Creamy Chrain Sauce uses a base of mayonnaise mixed with Gold’s Red Horseradish to keep the fish moist and is topped with crushed nuts of your choice although she recommends pistachios, which I adore.  There are a few other ingredients in there so click here for the full recipe.

Ooooh and one more goodie…. my Mexican Baked Potato.  Add some Gold’s white horseradish to the sour cream for a kick to this already flavorful spicy little spud.

  1. These recipes look so good! I would love to try the scallion pancakes. I also love to add horseradish to everything.

    This year I’m adding Gazpacho (it’s like tomato soup, only it’s not hot- that’s how I’m presenting it to my family)
    And last night I tried a flatbread recipe that I found in one of my cookbooks (Fresh and Easy Kosher Cooking) it wasn’t hard, but a bit of a patchke. The results were worth it. It tasted heavenly with butter and fish!

    The Colorful Mashed Potatoes look intriguing so I’ll probably make a batch to serve with fish.

  4. avatar says: Zahava

    I’d like to try veggie burgers

    I’m going to try baked ziti with gevina levana this year…have to change up the recipe because we made Aliyah!

  6. Have to say, meat-free is easy for us; we are fish and dairy lovers. I love the fruit-arugula pizza. Have to try that one. Scallion pancake an old fave!

    If you’re feeling meat deprived (which is the point, of course, but it’s harder for some than others, I guess), I have this Tilapia recipe that tastes like chicken!
    Cut your tilapia into bite sized pieces, coat them in bread crumbs, and pan fry till golden on each side. (Or save time and buy them pre-coated!)
    Pour over homemade duck sauce (apricot jam, ketchup, teriyaki sauce, garlic powder, a little water etc) and bake uncovered for 15-20 minutes.
    (Likely store bought duck sauce would work too.)
