Hoshana Rabba-Simchat Torah Recipes

Stumped with what to serve on Hoshana Rabba and Simchat Torah… just stuff it and you’re good. Check out amazing recipes from Jamie Geller!


Jewish Food Historian Gil Marks a”h says in his Encyclopedia of Jewish Food (Wiley, 2010) “...stuffed vegetables, filled pastas, filled pastries and filled pies, symbolizing plenty are commonplace on Succot tables.”  


Simchat Torah, the last day of Succot is the celebration of the conclusion of the annual cycle of Torah readings, at which point we immediately start the cycle again with the reading of Bereshit (Genesis). And so, I always thought that both the shape of the Torah scroll and the cyclical celebration of the holiday were the reasoning behind our stuffed and rolled food obsession this time of year.  


While I loathe to be wrong, I am happy to know that the stuffed, filled, and overflowing foods are an allusion to plenty. 


I often turn to Gil’s Encyclopedia when I am unsure, and it’s amazing to learn from him even after he has passed away. These recipes for stuffed foods on Succot are posted today in memory of Gil Marks a”h. Gil was a great cook, a great historian, and a great writer. His contribution to Jewish Food history is unmatched. 



Spinach, Chickpea, Date, and Chicken Rollups - Roll up your chicken around a tasty filling of chickpeas, dates, and spinach. A gorgeous and deliciously healthy dinner. 






Braised Stuffed Veal Breast with Porcini Mushrooms - Porcini mushrooms are an elegant accompaniment for tender and mildly flavored veal. The flavor gets better the longer the dish sits and the ingredients meld. 




Chicken Stuffed Matzo Balls - Raise the ante with not just homemade matzo balls but with stuffed matzo balls. Delish! Serve with favorite soups, stews, or just because. 






Vegetarian Moroccan Stuffed Peppers - This recipe is based on the flavors in kibbeh, the traditional fried bulgur and beef bites. You get all the flavor with less work and more health benefits. 






Butternut Squash and Sage Stuffed Shells - This easy and fast make-ahead dairy meal is great when you’re short on time. Delicious and healthy, this recipe is a sure winner! 








Chai Roasted Stuffed Acorn Squash - A perfect Fall vegetable side dish that’s both healthy and delicious. Squash is flavored with chai tea and stuffed with bulgur, onions, pecans, and cranberries. 







Chickpea Roulade with Spinach and Pine Nut Stuffing - Robust chickpeas serve as the base of this stunning roulade, which is stuffed with fresh, garlicky spinach and crunchy pine nuts.
