Hannukah Recipes for Food Allergies


Updated December 11, 2008

Enjoy an allergen-free Hannukah this year with several days worth of delicious holiday dishes from around the About.com network. This menu includes several main dish options plus versions of traditional Hannukah dishes like latkes and sufganiyot. Looking for wheat- and gluten-free eats? Be sure to check out Nancy Lapid's collection of Gluten-Free Hannukah Recipes on About.com's Celiac Disease site.

Main Dishes

Main dishes that are seasonal, simple, and festive may include roast chicken, brisket, or (if you're not cooking for a fish allergy) salmon. Vegetarian? Consider a kugel, or make latkes (below) the centerpiece of a meal.


While traditional latke recipes do include several common allergens, the good news is that potatoes are a forgiving ingredient. Check out these creative alternatives if you have a wheat, egg, dairy, or allium (onion or garlic) allergy.


Two variations of these traditional Israeli doughnuts will help you enjoy the festivities with a wheat allergy or an egg allergy.

  • About.com Vegetarian Cooking: Vegan Chanukah Doughnuts (dairy-free, egg-free, nut-free, peanut-free, fish-free, shellfish-free)
  • About.com Low-Carb Cooking: Low-Carb Doughnuts (soy-free, wheat- and gluten-free, nut-free, peanut-free, fish-free, shellfish-free)


Pair your latkes with homemade applesauce: simple to make and, if apples aren't a problem, an easy food to make allergy-friendly.
