This came from Eastern Europe with my Grandmother when she came here in 1910. It's basically a sweet stew usually made with meat but adapted to my vegetarian lifestyle.

How to Make Tsimmis Recipe (no meat)


  1. Peel white and sweet potatoes. Slice them into large chunks. Peel carrots and cut into chunks.
  2. In bottom of dutch oven use 1/2 cup olive oil.
    Spread sliced onion over bottom of dutch oven.
  3. Add potatoes on top of onions (both white and sweet), add carrots on top of potatoes.
    Sprinkle with sugar and salt.
  4. Add prunes over carrot and potato mixture.
    Add boiling water halfway up side of pot. You might have to add more as it cooks down. Give it all a good mix.
  5. Cook on top of stove until mixture comes to a boil. Then put it into the oven and roast until the potatoes and carrots and prunes break down and become soft.
  6. Make the motza ball mix and boil them in water (keep finished balls on the side).
  7. Once the veggies break down, add motza balls to top of potatoes and roast until balls dry out a bit.
    Watch the water level because if it dries out too fast it will burn.
