Tzimmes Recipes & Other Carrot Side Dish Recipes for Rosh HaShanah
Why must we eat Tzimmes recipes on Rosh HaShanah? Carrots are one of the popular Rosh HaShanah Simanim. Its name works in both Hebrew where “Gezer” means decree and and we ask Hashem to nullify all bad decrees as well as in Yiddish where carrots are called “Mehren” which also means “to increase” and we ask Hashem to increase our merits.
I remember growing up it was always about Tzimmes recipes, and I didn’t really like them… at all! Fast forward… a couple of years and now not only is there an abundant selection of delicious Tzimmes recipes to please every palate, but there is also and array of carrot kugel recipes and carrot salad recipes to choose from. See below for some of our favorites Tzimmes recipes and other carrot side dish recipes that we culled from the site.
Paula’s Sweet Carrots by Kpoll - My family does not like the overly sweetness of the classic tzimmes recipes. This dish is mildly sweet and the carrots are cooked only a little, so that they are kind of al dente. We enjoy them every Rosh Hashana.
