Shabbat Side Dishes
Israeli Couscous with Cherries and Pine Nuts (Pareve)
A recipe for Israeli Couscous with Cherries and Pine Nuts, flavored with scallions, fresh mint, and a balsamic vinaigrette.
Dijon Potato Salad (Pareve)
A recipe for mayo-free new potato salad with a simple Dijon mustard vinaigrette and fresh herbs.
Tofu and Chickpeas
This is the type of recipe that you either love or hate, depending on personal taste. If you like tofu and you like chickpeas, then you'll love the recipe. The honey, soy, garlic marinade is delicious. And the recipe is very healthy. Serve as a side dish on Shabbos for your vegetarian guests, or serve over rice for a complete vegetarian meal.
Rice Tofu Vegetable Stir-Fry
This Rice Tofu Vegetable Stir-Fry takes a bit of effort, but the results are worth it. Vegetarians and carnivores alike will enjoy this healthy dinner-in-one or impressive Friday night Shabbos dinner side dish. Stir-fry the tofu, eggs and vegetables, and then mix with cooked rice. While we tend to use broccoli and red bell peppers for great...
Teriyaki Green Beans (Parve)
These Teriyaki Green Beans grace our table nearly every Shabbat. They are healthy, easy to make and great tasting. Try experimenting with different teriyaki sauces. We have found a sesame teriyaki sauce that works particularly well with the beans.
Sweet and Sour Cabbage (Parve)
This Sweet and Sour Cabbage recipe can be served hot or cold, but I prefer it hot. I often serve it when I have guests who are not big veggie eaters, as they tend to like this flavorful dish and I can feel good about having served something healthy.
Perfect Roast Potatoes (Parve)
I make these Roast Potatoes every Friday night, so my children think Shabbat and roast potatoes are synonymous. Guests always ask for the "secret". The secret to making perfect roast potatoes is parboiling the potatoes and then dousing them in hot oil. This seals them so they are crispy on the outside and soft inside.
Kids Can Cook Kosher Recipe - Oven-Baked Potatoes (Parve)
I originally tried this recipe, which comes from Miriam Zakon's The Kids Kosher Cookbook: Do-It-Yourself Recipes Your Kids Will Love to Cook, because it was a simple, kosher, Sabbath recipe that I could make with my children. But now I regularly use this recipe because my family loves the taste of these moist, flavorful Oven-Baked Potatoes.
Baked Tangy Cauliflower (Parve)
This Baked Tangy Cauliflower recipe is great when you are looking for an easy-to-prepare vegetable side dish. My family loves cauliflower, and mustard is a delicious way to enhance its flavor.
Colorful Cauliflower (Parve, Passover)
My neighbor served this Colorful Cauliflower dish on Friday night, and it has become a staple on my Sabbath table ever since. I added a bit more onion and garlic powder to the recipe.
Charred Pepper Salad (Parve)
This Charred Pepper Salad can be served hot or cold. It’s a great Shabbat salad as you can serve it warm on Friday night and then cold for lunch the next day – though if you want enough for both meals I suggest doubling the recipe. The longer it sits in the marinade the tastier it gets!
Tofu Rice Stir-Fry Recipe
If you have vegetarians guests for Shabbos, this Tofu Rice Stir-Fry is the perfect dish to serve. With tofu, egg, rice and vegetables, it can be meet all their meal needs. Like many stir-fry recipes, there are a few steps to the recipe, but none of them are very taxing. And if you use frozen vegetables rather than fresh, then there is less to...
Cooked Red Cabbage (Parve)
In my opinion, cooked Red Cabbage is the quintessential Friday night Shabbos dinner side dish. Its deep purple color makes the dish look festive. It's economical to buy, but can feed a crowd. Served warm, it is quite satiating. It is healthy, but a sweet tasting vegetable that even children will like. And above all, it compliments almost any...
Dandy Eggplant Dish (Parve)
This Eggplant Side Dish is amazing in every way. It is gluten free, and works for most special diets. It can be made mild, spicy, vegan, or vegetarian. It can be served hot, warm, or at room temperature. Mix it with scrambled eggs (shakshuka style) or add it to tofu. Have it for a weekday dinner or as a Shabbat side dish. This pareve kosher side...
Sesame Noodles (parve)
After having these Sesame Noodles for Shabbat lunch at a friend's house, I called her on Saturday night for the recipe. This recipe is lighter than other sesame noodles I have tried. I also liked adding an easy to make, flavorful, pasta side dish recipe to add to my Sabbath recipe collection.
Top Tofu Recipes
Since some of my children have become vegetarians, tofu has become a staple on our weekly grocery list. There are a variety of ways to prepare delicious, healthy tofu dishes. We especially like non-dairy tofu recipes so we can serve the pareve dish with our meat Shabbat meals. Your family will enjoy these kosher tofu recipes for weekday and...
Potatoes Baked in Coconut Milk (Parve)
When God commanded the separation of meat and milk, He challenged us to find creative ways to eat creamy potatoes with meat meals. One easy and delicious solution is baking the potatoes is parve coconut milk instead of dairy milk.

Deep-Dish Mushroom Pie
I had frozen deep-dish pie crusts in my freezer left-over from Thanksgiving and a bunch of fresh mushrooms in my refrigerator. I combined the frozen pie crusts and fresh mushrooms to form this pareve Mushroom Pie, and everyone enjoyed the delicious side dish next to the Roast Chicken for Shabbos dinner.
