Use this yummy healthy and gluten free recipe as a symbolic Rosh Hashanah dessert, but more importantly, you can also use it on the dinner table as one of the simanim. On Rosh Hashanah we eat dates because it sounds like  the word “sheyitamu,” “that they be consumed.” Hence, we repeat the blessing”may… our enemies be consumed.”

Display these pretty dates on a dish that is on a pedestal, and if you are having a lot of company, buy two or three pedestal dishes and spread them along the table so that they are within reach.

Dates Stuffed with Pistachios:

  • 1 cup pistachio nuts, shelled
  • ¼ cup orange juice, freshly squeezed
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest
  • 1 pinch celtic sea salt
  • 20 large dates
  1.  In a food processor, pulse pistachios, orange juice, orange zest and salt
  2. With a sharp knife, make a slit on one side of each date and remove the pit. (Make sure you check the dates for worms and yucky crawly bugs.)
  3. Push a teaspoon of pistachio paste into each date; gently squeeze closed so that filling spills over
  4. Serve
Makes 20 stuffed dates
