Autumn Vegetarian Tzimmes (Stew)

Just in time for Thanksgiving, this “Tzimmes”, traditional eastern European Jewish stew, checks off all the boxes: traditional, vegetarian, vegan, gluten free and incredibly easy! You can also make this all year round. I will be serving this at my Thanksgiving feast this year. You can keep it warming in the oven with all the other delicious festive foods. A bonus: it can be made a day in advance and reheated. It is not too sweet and will look perfect on your harvest table. Enjoy!  The Recipe

Harvest Tzimmes

A Tzimmes (pronounced “tzimess”) is a Jewish stew usually made with sweet potatoes, carrots, dried fruit and sometimes meat. This is a much lighter and easier version. It is completely vegetarian and pareve (neutral for milk and meat dishes) and is the perfect side dish for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday. I think it’s fun to have ethnic dishes, in this case, Jewish dishes, on the traditional American Thanksgiving table. The Tzimmes can be prepared several days in advance and reheated the day of the holiday or it can be made in a flash two hours before the feast. I’ve used cranberries to keep it festive and some lemon juice to keep it light. They give a nice balance to the hint of brown sugar and the sweetness of the sweet potatoes. Have a great Thanksgiving!  The Recipe
