Hanukkah is almost here and I’ve curated eight crazy gluten free Hanukkah recipes for all eight crazy nights!
Easy Gluten Free Donuts from Gluten Free on a Shoestring: Gluten Free on a Shoestring is one of my favorite GF blogs and Nicole always has the best recipes! Simply use your own gluten free biscuit dough or Nicole’s recipe, and voila, you have wonderful homemade donuts (add a little jelly in the center and you have traditional sufganiyot). PS – Like how I started this post with dessert first?
Gluten Free Carrot Scallion Latkes from Elana’s Pantry: Say goodbye to boring, starchy latkes thanks to Elana’s recipe for these carrot scallion latkes instead. These are Paleo friendly too.
Red Wine and Honey Brisket from Modern Jewish Cooking (Leah Koenig): They say you eat with your eyes and my eyes found this wonderful and simple brisket recipe online. I haven’t made it (yet!) but boy does this red wine and honey brisket make me crave Hanukkah food!
Homemade Applesauce by the Pioneer Woman: Latkes are traditionally topped with sweet applesauce. Instead of buying it from the store, try this homemade applesauce recipe from one of my favorite foodie celebrities, the Pioneer Woman. Ree has beautiful step-by-step photos so you can be certain to do this right!
Make Your Own Chanukah Gelt from Clinton Kelly: Children love playing with and eating gelt, which is a coin-shaped piece of chocolate wrapped in gold or silver foil. I’m shaking my head now… why hadn’t I thought of this clever idea for making your own Chanukah gelt myself?! Simply melt chocolate of choice and use your mini muffin pan as your gelt mold. Ingenious!
Challah by Good For You Gluten Free: Of course you don’t want to forget a tasty gluten free challah, especially for the Friday night of Chanukah! Here’s my awesome gluten free challah recipe and blog post.
Gluten Free Rugelach by Gluten Free Girl: For anyone a little more adventurous and confident in their baking skills, I found this little recipe for homemade gluten free rugelach, a traditional Jewish pastry. My aunt Ayala makes the best rugelach, but I haven’t been able to enjoy one for years. Maybe I’ll try to make some GF rugelach – although, to be honest, I’m not sure I could ever match Ayala’s delicious recipe and technique.
Gluten Free Cinnamon Raisin Kugel by Lotus Foods: Of course a Jewish celebration is never complete unless there’s kugel. I started buying brown rice and millet ramen noodles from Lotus Foods. They are delicious and a great texture too. Lotus Foods has a wonderful recipe for gluten free cinnamon raisin kugel on its website.
There you have it… eight crazy gluten free Hanukkah recipes for all eight crazy nights of Hanukkah. Chag Sameach!
