The Most Delicious Purim Menu Is Right Here!
So, you're hosting a Purim Seudah and don't know what to make. Although we haven't exactly finalized our menus either, we do have a good sense of what goes over well and which recipes will make you look like the queen of Purim. (You can share the spotlight with Esther.)
From crispy chicken poppers, soft and succulent meat galette, and a tender sliced London broil, to crunchy and refreshing salads to cut through all that richness, this menu includes foods that have so many amazing flavors, textures, and appearances. To finish, we recommend a decadent chocolate brownie ice cream bowl and classic hamantaschen. Most of the recipes are relatively easy to make.
We also included some adorable "dressed-up" cocktails to add to the fun!
As always, feel free to tweak this menu to your liking. We have so many amazing recipes here on Kosher.com to choose from!
- Chinese Chicken Poppers by Rorie Weisberg
These chicken bites are so poppable, you won't be able to stop with just Purim. Get ready for your family's new weekly staple.
- Pulled Veal “Hamantasch” Galette by Faigy Grossman
Looking for a delicious crowd-pleaser for your Purim seudah or party? Pulled Veal “Hamantasch” Galette is the way to go. It has a sweet and sour meat filling that is completely irresistible. Plus, it looks so gorgeous, no one will believe how easy it was to make. It’ll be the perfect centerpiece to your Purim table.
- Brach's Famous London Broil by Rivky Kleiman
Brachs in Queens, one of the first kosher superstores in the Tristate area, was renowned for its takeout and especially for its London broil. I am pleased to be able to share this recipe with you, contributed by Mr. Brach’s daughter, Elana.
- Mixed Gorgeous Greens with Citrus Green Goddess Dressing by Elizabeth Kurtz
This salad is beautifully green and filled with bold flavors. I make it both dairy with the feta cheese, and parve too. Try the sweet and salty pepitas or buy store-bought honey-glazed pecans for an easy substitute. The pepitas are great for snacking, too, and give this salad a homemade and unique touch.
- Rainbow Salad with Maple-Lime Dressing by Miriam (Pascal) Cohen
With almost nothing to prep, I make this recipe when I don’t have time but still want to wow my guests. The combination of sweet and savory flavors, plus all kinds of great crunchy textures, really make this a winner.
- Roasted Baby Bella Mushrooms and Onions by Elky Friedman
Enjoy these roasted onions and portobello mushrooms hot, warm, or cold as a great low-cal salad topper.
- Liqueur-Laced Coffee Ice Cream with Fudge Brownie Bits by Brynie Greisman
Two amazing recipes in one. Combined, it turns into a decadent dessert. Might not yield as many servings! I know…
Hamantaschen by Tamara Friedman
This is my favorite hamantaschen recipe. The dough is so easy to prepare, and it calls for oil instead of margarine. These are a soft hamantaschen, but they do not open when baking. Use whatever you enjoy for the filling, whether it's a traditional filling, or something more trendy. Dipping them in melted chocolate and decorating the hamantaschen with sprinkles or nuts really adds a wow factor, with very little effort!
- How to Dress up Your Purim Cocktails by Shortcuts by Family Table
Why fill your Purim party with plain wine glasses, when you can dress up your drinks? These amazing cocktail garnishes will be the all the rage whether you go cocktail or 'mocktail.' Put a little "V'nahafochu" spin on your drinks with lavender ice cubes, dragon fruit mint skewers, tropical fruit "hamantaschen", and even candy! Purim parties will never be the same.
