Thanksgiving and Hanukkah both fall on the same day this year, making for one big “Thanksgivukkah” celebration. The last time this happened was in 1888, when Grover Cleveland was in office and corsets were in fashion. Since this won’t happen for another 79,000 years, make your feast extra special this year by trying these new hybrid recipes concocted for such a doubly festive occasion.
1) Thanksgivukkah Pumpkin Tsimmes (left) (Fork & Swoon)
Tzimmes (or Tsimis) comes from the Yiddish words “tzim” and “esn,” which roughly translates to “for eating.” Made with root vegetables, it’s the much healthier equivalent to the traditional Thanksgiving green bean casserole.
2) Beet and Carrot Latkes (Joy of Cooking by Irma S. Rombauer, Marion Rombauer Becker and Ethan Becker)
Try this healthier (and colorful) twist on a Hanukkah favorite. Instead of sour cream, try topping it with spiced yogurt.
