Purim Seudah (posted late)

We had guests for seudat purim, and I hope they didn't leave hungry.

Here's a recap of our menu:

Homemade whole wheat/oatmeal/flaxseed rolls, with butter or cream cheese

Tomato Soup with roasted red peppers (I made this in the crockpot: First, I pan-roasted - in my cast iron pan - onions, red peppers, and tomatoes - each separately - in olive oil. Place those in crock pot, along with 2/3 cup brown rice. Add tomato paste (I used about 1 kg for my super huge crock pot) and water or vegetable stock, salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper to taste. Cook on high for about 6 hrs.)

Teriyaki/Ginger salmon steaks (major splurge, but they were on sale for 48.99NIS/kg)

Spicy Roasted new potatoes

Corn Bread

Cut vegetables - avocado, carrots, cucumbers, red peppers


A couple bottles of wine, for those interested.

What did you do for seudah?


  1. We hosted a homeschoolers' potluck seuda. Everyone brought something, so I didn't have to make tons of food.
    I made my usual Purim bread (with chocolate chips) and baked tofu and a salad and vegan, sugar-free fruit cake.
    Others brought quinoa salad, baked sweet and regular potatoes, broccoli vegan-quiche, rice salad, stir-fried vegetables, lentil salad, strawberries. There were also a variety of cakes and hamantaschen, and I don't think anyone went home hungry :-)
    Maybe you'll come and join us next year...!

    1. Thanks for sharing your pot luck menu Louise! sounds great! I think we are going to make a habit of having my cousins over for Purim, it was so much fun, and made us feel a sense of belonging we've been missing.
