Kosher Thanksgiving Recipes


These kosher Thanksgiving recipes can help you to prepare an easy, delicious, and kosher Thanksgiving meal for your family and friends. Recipes include roast stuffed turkey, easy turkey gravy, vegetarian stuffing, parve mashed potatoes, sweet potato pie, corn bread, apple crumble, pumpkin cookies and more. The Thanksgiving menu is so delicious that even after living in Israel for 20 years, I continue to prepare this meal each November.

1. Red Pepper Soup

If you want to start your holiday meal with a soup or first course, I suggest this lite and easy to prepare soup.

This easy Turkey Gravy recipe will perfectly complement your Thanksgiving turkey. It is a simple and quick gravy to make when you are expecting a crowd, and it is delicious too. Your guests will love to sop up any extra gravy with their cornbread and mashed potatoes.

4. Parve Crock Pot Stuffing

You can prepare your Thanksgiving stuffing in a Crock Pot to save room in your busy oven on Thanksgiving day. And you can prepare a parve Thanksgiving stuffing so your vegetarian guests can also enjoy this delicious mix of toasted bread cubes, vegetables and spices. This recipe for kosher parve Crock Pot Stuffing tastes like it was cooked in the turkey, but it is actually prepared separately in the slow cooker.

5. Sweet Potato Pie

This Sweet Potato Pie is a nice alternative to kugel if you are looking for something new to serve for the Sabbath lunch. This pareve pie goes particularly well with turkey, at Thanksgiving or any time of the year.

6. Parve Mashed Potatoes

Parve Mashed Potatoes

Mashed potatoes go so well with Thanksgiving turkey and gravy, but most mashed potatoes recipes contain butter, milk or cream. A menu consisting of both turkey meat and dairy products is a problem for kosher observant. This Parve Mashed Potato recipe is the solution. Now you can enjoy a kosher Thanksgiving meal with traditional turkey and non-dairy mashed potatoes.

7. Cornbread Muffins

The biggest challenge to creating a kosher Thanksgiving meal is making the traditional Thanksgiving side dishes in non-dairy form (parve) so they can be eaten with the turkey. This cornbread recipe uses soy milk. These Cornbread Muffins are cake-like, sweet and parve.

8. Roast Broccoli

Roasted Broccoli is the perfect side dish to the Thanksgiving turkey. Broccoli comes into season around Thanksgiving time. Roast Broccoli, which is easy to prepare, adds fresh flavor and a healthy, lite touch to the homey holiday meal.

9. Apple Crumble

Apple Crumble

The vanilla sugar and orange juice give this Apple Crumble an extra special taste. This is one of my all time favorite recipes! This dessert is especially delicious when served for Thanksgiving dessert. If you want to serve it with vanilla ice cream, make sure the ice cream is parve.

10. Susie Fishbein's Pumpkin Doodle Cookie
