Yom Kippur Break the Fast Recipes

The Jewish holiday Yom Kippur is known as the holiest day of the year. Unlike other world holidays that include plenty of food and drink, people observing Yom Kippur fast (for 24 hours). If you’re fasting this holiday, breaking the fast doesn’t exactly mean indulging in a mega-meal. Overdoing it with too much heavy food can lead to digestive issues — especially after abstaining from food for a full day and night. Instead of making a meal to end all meals, check out these ‘break the fast’ ideas that are easy n your stomach and tasty too!

Fruit Kugel

While a kugel can be unrelentingly heavy, you can also make one that has a lighter texture. Take the traditional egg noddle and cream cheese/milk/cream recipe and replace the heavy dairy components with lighter versions. You can also add in sliced fruit (such as pears and apples) or berries to make the kugel feel light and fresh.

Grilled Chicken Salad

No one who hasn’t eaten in 24 hours wants to chow down on a heavy fried chicken recipe. Instead, lighten things up and grill (or broil) chicken breasts. Slice them thinly, chill the cooked chicken and add it to a green salad. Instead of a thick dressing, you with a sprinkle of lemon juice.

Fish and Veggies

Again, a grilled protein source will go over better than anything that is fried. Pick your family’s favorite fish and grill it. Serve it with a side of steamed veggies.
