Here is an excellent Tu B’Shvat menu, which is traditionally vegetarian. Each dish features some of the seven revered foods in Judaism, such as olives, wheat, barley, figs, dates, grapes and pomegranate. The simple ingredients create an exciting experience in taste. Enjoy this deliciously healthy meal, and plant a tree in honor of the day, which is another Tu B'Shvat custom.
Stuffed Figs With Goat Cheese
A creamy, honeyed and nutty goat cheese filling makes this purple or black figs recipe lavish. These figs are gorgeous and easy enough to give you the luxurious appetizer for your next dinner party.
Tabbouleh with Pomegranate Seeds
For a change of pace from regular salads, try this elegant, great-tasting salad, which features quickly fluffed bulgur wheat tossed with tomato, cucumber, mint, scallions, parsley, lemon juice and the tang of fresh pomegranate seeds. Try this for a healthy and simple lunch.
Butternut Squash Soup With Chickpeas
This vegetarian hearty soup gets a kick from cayenne, turmeric and cumin. Serve it over brown rice or have it on its own, scrumptious either way. An excellent recipe to make inexpensive meals for a large family.
Tu Bishvat Muffins
These kicked up muffins are not only excellent for a breakfast or brunch but they are great alongside salads or soups as well for a lite lunch. Top with the melted butter for some extra indulgence.
