Over 50 Gluten-Free Sweet & Savory Rosh Hashanah Recipes #roshhashanah #glutenfree #jewishnewyear #newyear #holyday #figs #pomegranates #apples #honey #recipes #glutenfreerecipes

Even though my family only has a tiny bit of Jewish blood, we’ve been celebrating the biblical Feasts for years and loving it! Though it might not be as well known as Hanukkah or Passover, but Rosh Hashanah is the first feast of the year on the Jewish calendar.

New Years in September.

Literally, Rosh Hashanah means “first of the year,” and it’s commonly known as the Jewish New Year. And while Jewish people do regularly make resolutions on Rosh Hashanah, they don’t party like it’s New Year’s Eve. 😉 Eating sweet fruits like apples, figs, dates, and pomegranates, as well as things made with honey, is also a popular part of Rosh Hashanah. 

So, in keeping with those tasty traditions, I’ve rounded up over 50 delicious gluten-free and refined-sugar free recipes to help you celebrate Rosh Hashanah… even if you’re not Jewish.

L’shanah tovah! (To a good new year!)
