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.

3) Braised Brisket and Roots (Delish)
This juicy, tender recipe will make you ravenous for your leftovers this weekend. For more flavor, add fresh mushrooms, and organic tomatoes seasoned with basil.
