KOL NIDRE MEAL: Honey Roasted Butternut Squash

Squash Recipe

As we bring in the sweet Jewish New Year, our minds turn to the upcoming Day of Atonement, Yom Kippur. Before fasting for 25 hours, the ‘pre-fast’ Kol Nidre meal occurs (this time round, on the evening of Tuesday 8th October). It’s important to consume low salt yet starchy foods during this meal in order to stay full for longer and avoid dehydration.

This delicious Honey Roasted Squash Recipe is a real favourite for keeping you full for longer.
