The holidays are over: Take it easy with easy dishes

Although most of us consumed a tremendous amount of sweets over the holidays, Shabbat is still Shabbat and so we must have at least a simple cake.

For the last month, all the special recipes I’ve been suggesting have been connected to the holidays and were specifically related to each festival. Now that we are officially “after the holidays,” it’s time to get back to simple, healthy recipes that we can quickly prepare for our families so we can get back to our hectic schedules.

After Succot, I like to prepare vegetarian dishes that are loaded with lots and lots of cooked, steamed and raw vegetables. These recipes need a super short amount of preparation time – literally peel, chop into a few large pieces and toss them in the oven or into a pot and that’s it.
