5 Molly Yeh Recipes That Are Perfect for Hanukkah
You'll want to eat these dishes for eight days straight.
This year, we're celebrating Hanukkah the Molly Yeh way. She never fails to put her signature twist on classic dishes, and that includes latkes, pastrami and other festive favorites. Below, check out her best recipes to feast on during the festival of lights:
Molly upgrades the iconic Hanukkah dish with shredded brussels sprouts and a balsamic Dijon sour cream. Hosting guests with dietary restrictions? You can make these latkes gluten-free with chickpea flour.
It’s customary to prepare fried foods in celebration of the miracle of Hanukkah. The oil used in frying honors the oil that kept the menorah lit for eight days, instead of the one day it was supposed to last. That’s why Molly’s pancakes, though traditionally Chinese, also make a great addition to a Hanukkah celebration. They’re fried until golden brown and crispy, then topped with a carrot-maple syrup slaw.
Craving something sour? Molly folds her cheese-wrapped pickles into an egg roll wrapper, then deep-fries the pickles for just a few minutes. A Sriracha-ranch dressing is the finishing touch for this easy, cheesy dish.
Molly’s got your sweet tooth covered with this colorful cake. She uses olive oil and Greek yogurt to load her cake with moisture, then tops it with a sweet and vibrant cranberry glaze.
Served on top of rye toast squares, Molly’s pastrami meatballs are such a fun holiday treat. A pickle chip and brown deli mustard are the perfect accompaniments for these sandwich-inspired bites.
