Have you ever tried a goldenberry?

I had them for the first time a few years ago as the new fruit on Rosh Hashanah and I fell in love. Usually, the new fruits on Rosh Hashanah are either beautiful and flavorless (aka dragon fruit) or it’s something very interesting that you don’t necessarily plan on having again. But, I was so pleasantly surprised when I tried it and loved it!

Goldenberries are in season now and I just bought a container to munch on as a Shabbat treat. They are sweet and slightly tangy and look like little orange grape tomatoes. I was very excited to see that we even have a chicken recipe using them! They are super healthy and may help boost your immune system, which we all need now that winter is approaching. 

Happy cooking!

This thick and flavorful soup is loaded with protein from two sources – quinoa and red lentils.


Spinach Salad with Basil Dressing by Chanie Nayman



This is one of those salads everyone loves. It’s worth making just to try the basil dressing, and how could you go wrong with some crispy, caramelized beef fry!

Goldenberries are a delicious citrus fruit with floral flavors that make a great accompaniment to chicken and fish.


Sweet Potato Quinoa Salad by Brynie Greisman


The orange vinaigrette makes this salad irresistible. It can be served room temperature as a salad, or warmed as a side. 


Teriyaki Roasted Cauliflower and Broccoli by Miriam (Pascal) Cohen


This dish tastes kind of like a stir-fry – minus the meat or chicken, but more importantly, minus the frying, the pan to wash, and the standing over the stove!


Lemon-Lime Bars by Rivky Kleiman


A sweet and tangy treat that can be enjoyed any time of day.


Refreshing Fruit Salad from the Dining In Cookbook
