Rosh Hashanah Culinary Creations for Kids to Help Cook
Your kids can help you to plan and prepare a family meal for Rosh Hashanah. The seder is an important part of the holiday celebration. While you may need to cook the main part of the meal yourself, your kids can help you with some of the no-heat-required items. If you’re not sure where to start, check out these family-friendly culinary creations for the holiday!
Simanim are eaten on the Rosh Hashanah to symbolize hopes for a sweet New Year. These foods traditionally include items such as honey, pomegranate, apples, leeks, dates, carrots and cabbage. Create a simanim salad that starts with a cabbage base. Mix cabbage leaves with other greens. Add shredded carrots, sliced apples, dried dates and a honey-based dijon dressing.
Apple and Honey Tarts
This no-bake treat is an easy option for kids who want to cook. Start with a ready-made mini pie crust (at room temperature—not frozen). Peel and slice a few apples for your child. Place the thin slices in a bowl and drizzle honey on top of the fruit. The more honey your child uses, the sweeter. Stir the mix and spoon it into the mini pie crusts.
Date and Veggie Couscous
Cook a whole wheat couscous, following the manufacturer’s directions. Choose a few of your kiddo’s favorite veggies and roast, broil, or boil them. Chop the cooked vegetables and a few dried dates. Let your little chef sprinkle the dates and veggies into the couscous. Stir the side dish before serving it at your seder table.
