Taste the Rainbow: 10 Rainbow Recipes

June is Pride Month, an exciting time to celebrate our LGBTQ+ community, educate our peers, and open our table to conversations about ourselves, our identities, and what is going on in the world around us. Every time I host a Shabbat with OneTable I think of new ways to impress my guests to keep them coming back.

As a self-proclaimed foodie and owner of a small candy business, I wanted to use my expertise to brighten up my Shabbat menu this month. If you are looking to elevate your dinner and celebrate with your LGBTQ+ pals, here’s a list of 10 rainbow recipes to take your Pride Shabbat to the next level.

Rainbow Candy Boards

Have you made a charcuterie board before? Try swapping out your cheese and nuts for licorice and sour gummy worms! Surprise your guests with a sweet and colorful rainbow candy board to brighten up your dessert offerings.

Lastly, it wouldn’t be a Pride Shabbat without a rainbow challah! Take a stab at creating rainbow challah for your guests to enjoy.

I truly can not think of a better way to celebrate Pride Month than creating delicious, bright, rainbow recipes to share with one another during Shabbat dinner. Check out some of our other Pride Month blogs like Conversation Topics or our Pride Bingo for Pride Shabbat!
