Sukkot or the Feast of Tabernacles is a Fall High Holiday– a feast that was instituted by Elohim, that is commemorating the time the Hebrews were in the wilderness following their Exodus from Egypt. The word Sukkot in Hebrew means booth or tabernacle and refers to the temporary dwellings or sukkahs the Hebrews lived in during this time.
Sukkot is an eight-day feasting high holiday, so there are many opportunities for meal ideas and inspiration. I love to try new recipes as well as embracing this new season we are in. As the days are starting to get colder, and summer produce starts to slow down, the heartier vegetables and soups are calling my name.
I created an autumn-inspired Sukkot menu ideas list that will hopefully help you as we prepare for the last Fall Feast of the year!
One of my favorite go-to meals is roasted chicken thighs and veggies. Roasted chicken, sausage, ravioli are all my favorite dinners and are all fall-inspired. Just make sure the sausage is made from biblically clean meats and that the sausage casing is not pork.
Soup and Stews
Nothing says Fall like soups and stews. A hearty beef stew or chili is warm and comforting on a cold, autumn night.
Farro with olive oil, feta cheese, tomato, and cucumber makes the perfect side dish for roasted chicken. Roasted squash is a new discovery from last year and one that I will continue this year!
Cherry pie is my favorite kind of pie. But apple pie or crisp is also a favorite, and candied yams are just a classic dessert that is a must for dinner.
I hope this Sukkot Menu gave you some ideas or inspiration for your many Sukkot dinners. I hope you and your family have a Sukkot filled with joy and thanksgiving. Shalom!
