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!

    Awesome! Surprised there’s not a veggie side dish! I consider squash as a carb but like the cauliflower/chicken combo recipe! Cucumber and salad recipe is good but looking for something warm. :)

    Thanks for sharing your recipes and wishing you a happy new year!!!

    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.

    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!

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

    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!

    Your name sharing friend,

    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
