Rosh Hashanah is a special time for Jewish families, as it marks the New Year for people of Jewish faith. For those of you who do not know (I was recently one of them), in Hebrew, Rosh Hashanah literally means head of the year or first of the year and is a time of looking back at the mistakes of the past year and plan changes for the new year. You don't have to be Jewish to respect and admire or even learn about another faith or its cuisines. As for me, I love all faiths, all people and all experiences.
This year I decided to put forth a recipe for a delicious side dish using carrots. Ready for the drum roll? The side dish I chose is from Chabad.org which is a Ginger Infused Roasted Carrot Soup. Carrots are a traditional Rosh Hashanah food and according to Chabad.org eating carrots symbolizes a desire for more good in the coming year. So let's eat carrots, traditional savory braised beef brisket and spiced apple cake with a delicious honey glaze and enjoy Rosh Hashanah with family and friends.
