    Meatless Jewish Appetizer or Main Dish

    Sat Mar 16, 2013 12:53 am Groupie
    I am looking for an appetizer or main dish to bring to a gathering do to the passing of a resident's son ( she lives in senior housing) Notice said "no Meat". Since I am not Jewish nor am I familiar with what they can or can not eat I am looking for advice. Ideally I am looking for something that is not complicated.... Thank you for any help you can give me.

    I would probably bring a (savory) kugel/noodle pudding, or anything from Mirj's cookbooks. icon_smile.gif

    Many years ago, I worked for an attorney who was Jewish, and when his wife died, I had the same dilemma - I wanted to bring something but I didn't want to offend anyone. I ended up asking his partner, who suggested that the best thing I could bring in that case was nuts - a bowl or a tray of mixed nuts. I don't know why nuts in particular (for all I know, the partner himself liked nuts!), but that was what I brought, and it seemed to go over okay.

    My Nephews fiancé and follows Kosher rules to some extent. For simplicity when not eating at home, she eats vegetarian. That way she doesn't have to worry about the preparation of the meat or mixing meat and dairy.

    I would also avoid shellfish of any type.

    I would make something easy, that you like and are familiar with. I'd bring a nice cheese and fruit tray with crackers, assorted olives with bread, hummus and veggies.

    People might want to pick at things and these are easy to set out and nibble on.
