Paleo Rosh Hashanah Menu

Pack this year’s Rosh Hashanah dinner table with Paleo goodness.

Are you wondering what to serve for the Jewish High Holidays? Are you looking for gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free or Paleo options for your Rosh Hashanah meal?

Below is a Paleo Rosh Hashanah menu that will suit a variety of guests with a cornucopia of food allergies and intolerances. And from my experience, Jews seem to have as many, or more digestive issues and food intolerances than most other folks. So if you’re celebrating the High Holidays this is the Rosh Hashanah menu for you. It may also be the perfect Yom Kippur menu for you.

The above High Holiday menu includes some very traditional Jewish dishes that are far healthier, yet just as tasty as the standard Jewish holiday fare.

Your gluten-free Paleo Rosh Hashanah is indeed right around the corner! As is your gluten-free Paleo Yom Kippur. For that Holy Day we’ll be breaking our fast with my Paleo Yom Kippur Break Fast.

Is there a specific dish that you would like me to Elana-i-fy for your High Holy Days? Leave a comment and let me know!

  1. They all look amazing! Shana tova to you and your family!

  2. Erica

    Do you have a gluten free challah recipe. I used to make challah before someone in the house was diagnosed with celiac. I’ve ordered them online but want to make it

  3. Hi Elana-

    I love how you give a great menu for the holidays. From our family to yours across the miles, we wish you a sweet Rosh Hashana. May you be inscribed in the book of life.

    Your name sharing friend,

    Paleo challah, please? I mean, I know it’s not acceptable for the blessing, but…

  5. Rina

    Yes, Chalah recipe please if possible, i was going to ask you since I read the interview in Paleo Magazine.

    Hi, Elana,

    Thanks again for asking.

    For the high holidays, round challah, strudel, or tzimmes would be amazing. And may I suggest adding your star cookies to the Yom Kippur breakfast menu (with some spice (cinnamon – nutmeg – cloves), if you like)?

    For Sukkot, sweet potato cholent, stuffed cabbage (sweet and sour?), and mandelbrot would be awesome. (Your cranberry relish would be a wonderful Sukkot menu item too!) Any ideas for a Gingerbread Sukkah (to look at or eat)?

    Wishing you a sweet, healthy, and fulfilling year!

    Shana tovah. I would love to see a paleo recipe for apple cake that didn’t use nut butter.

    I’ve been following your blog for quite some time and I came here today to find recipes for Rosh Hashanah, I knew I could count on you to post a menu! You’re a life saver, thank you!

  12. Shana Tovah Elana! Health and happiness, always.

    Shana tova! I made the honey cake tonight and it is just wonderful. Thank you for the high holiday recipes, they are a delight to me.

    These sound so yummy!! I can’t wait to give them all of a try. Definitely going to be checking out the rest of your blog.

    I used Elana’s recipe for Rosh Hashana Paleo Honey cake, and added semi-sweet chocolate chips and dry cranberries and it was fabulous.

    I am looking to recreate my family’s recipe for plums stuffed with walnuts preserves. My grandmother and mother used to make it when I was a child, and now I crave it. I wonder if anyone from the former USSR is reading this blog and would share it.
