Sarah Newman writes Neesh Noosh—a Jewish woman’s year-long journey to find faith in food. She creates weekly recipes inspired by the Parshah and what’s in season at her local farmers’ markets.
The recipe this week reflects the notion of life and death. The main ingredients are beets, and shallots, which grow deeply in the Earth and mushrooms, which grow in dark, damp places. The finely chopped nuts are dust-like to symbolize what we each become...
Here is a delicious, non-dairy dessert made with seasonal blueberries whose vibrant bluish-purple color makes the dish especially beautiful and appealing. It also has no added sugars, sweetened only with dates and bananas. Ingredients: 1½ 13- or 14-ounce ...

The dish I created this week is inspired by the idea of standing at the precipice of the Promised Land. The simple walnuts represent the wilderness. A long stream of honey symbolizes the Jordan River. The yogurt and honey are also symbolic of Israel being...
The dish I made this week–vegan pancakes with strawberry compote–is inspired by Korach’s fire pans and the sweetness of Torah. Pancakes are a thin and humble dish, unlike Korach’s inflated sense of self. (If I was making a dish representative of Korach, t...
