Being raised Italian I had never celebrated the Jewish holidays or was even familiar with traditional of Judaism but being married to my ex-husband, who was Jewish, allowed me to learn more about the celebrations and foods served.
This recipe for mock kishka was given to me by an old friend, part of my havarah (read this article you will learn more about that experience) as a mock up kishka as the original recipe for kishka which basically is a stuffed sausage. My recipe for mock kishka has no meat in it and is derived from ritz crackers (butter crackers) and vegetables. They serve mock kishka for Rosh Hashanah as it’s a little sweet but for those of you who are not Jewish, this is still a great side dish for any meal. For those of you celebrating the Jewish holidays, check out my noodle kugel recipe as well.
Starts off with grating your carrots, celery and onion (I forgot to add onion to the recipe…big mistake!), you can use a food processor like I did to save time 🙂
add to a bowl
put crackers in food processor
pulsate until fine
add to bowl with shredded carrots, celery and onion, add butter and mix well
you will have 2 logs
bake until baked through and serve hot
This is a great recipe for kishka with vegetables for Rosh Hashanah or anytime, doesn’t have to be for a Jewish dinner. I love this recipe and always looked forward to eating it with family over the celebration, that being said it’s a great side for anytime not necessarily for a Jewish holiday but just as a great side dish as well. Let me know what you think of this recipe.
