Breaking the fast – planning your Yom Kippur menu


yom kippur, break fast, kosher dairy recipes, set tableWith Rosh Hashanah behind us, it’s time to plan for Yom Kippur. Yom Kippur is not about food. However, eating before the fasting begins is as much of a mitzvah as the fast itself. It should be a full holiday meal.

When it comes to breaking the fast, most families stick to dairy meals, which can be a bit easier on the stomach. This week, we’ll be featuring several recipes for your break-the-fast meal. Here’s what’s on our menu:

  • Parsnip Bisque from Kosher By Design, page 65
  • Orange Cornmeal Bread from Kosher By Design, Short on Time, page 222
  • Berry Filled Mini Kugels  from Kosher By Design Entertains, page 241
  • Salmon Salad with Carrot Ginger Vinaigrette from Kosher By Design Lightens Up, page 128
  • Thai Quinoa from Kosher By Design, Short on Time, page 234
  • A make-your-own ice cream sundae bar for dessert
