Christmas: List of traditional dishes that should be on the table

Christmas dishes are an unchanged christmas attribute. They bring a festival feeling in our house, while the Christmas table has an important symbolic meaning.

According to the old custom, the Christmas dinner must consist of 12 dishes - by the number of Christ Apostles. But first things first.

So, the Christmas Eve or Evening on Christmas Eve is the day of the most strict post. And so the first table should be lean. Yes, 12 dishes and all lean.

Only two dishes are mandatory - sochily or cathe and worship or Uzbar. The first dish is prepared from wheat grains.

Sochily or klya - mandatory dish of the Christmas table. Serves the very first, 1 spoon, each at the table.
Sochily or klya - mandatory dish of the Christmas table. Serves the very first, 1 spoon, each at the table.

Sochily as a symbol of unity with God. In it, grain symbolizes eternal life and prosperity, and various additives are a sweet life. In modern interpretation, sochily boils from rice or buckwheat and it adds pieces of chocolate, almonds, marmalade, candles and spices.

The second or rich evening, the main Christmas feast of the next day also begins with the schisa. After the holy evening, she is left for the night on the table, so that the souls of the ancestors also tried a delicious treat.

The second significant and mandatory dish of the Lent Christmas Table - Weldling or Uzbar.

Uzbar - traditional appendix of Orthodox Christmas.
Uzbar - traditional appendix of Orthodox Christmas.

This is something like a compote from dried fruits. Only not boiled it, but bears. Now such a procedure can be done in the thermos.

In the Christmas Christmas Eve, it is impossible to appear the first star in the sky. Therefore, it is allowed to have a little snack with lean dishes as it will happen, as it is already in the evening it is necessary to be in the church, on the vigil.

What else on a bedtime: mushrooms, lean pastries (pancakes, bread, pies), fish, uroin apples and berries, pickles and savings, hot dishes from cabbage or other vegetables and croup. Even earlier, the porridge was cooked, caught cabbage on the lean oil, they did Vinaigrette, etc.

Only after the service it is possible for a festive (second) table in Christmas itself the whole family sits down and no longer refuse.

And now the main christmas feast. It is no longer necessary exactly twelve dishes, but at the same time no less than this figure. And better all 13 - as 12 apostles and Christ himself.

What to cook? Of course, after a long post, I want to please yourself and close to appetizing delicious dishes, so the holiday is prepared except forces and Uzvar a lot of things.

In the villages still bake bread or pies, and in the city you can bake a curly cookie. Make stuffed bird, better goose or duck.

And also bake meat or buoyhenine. Do not forget about the cold or jelly. Interesting that many advise on Christmas table to prepare borsch, dumplings or cabbage rolls.

The latter, by the way, consonant with the word "dove", which means the love that God gave humanity.

In fact, it all depends on the budget of the family and financial opportunities. Cook and buy for a festive table can be very much. But after the New Year holidays, money remained not all. Therefore, prepare sochily and the Uzvar, and the rest is at will and weaken.

Good luck to you! And merry christmas.

We will consider the following option of the Kuti, to prepare which we need such ingredients.


- a glass of rice and wheat grains;

- a glass of raisum;

- 100 g of honey;

- Sugar and salt to taste.


The cooking process takes a small amount of time, so such a dish will delight any hostess.

First of all, it is necessary to boil rice into a slightly salted water, after which, move to the colander and rinse under running water. We place the washed rice in a separate ass, where we mix it with honey and sugar. Raisin thoroughly rinse, after which, pour boiling water in order for it to gain moisture.

We add the softened raisins to the rice and mix thoroughly. Actually, the dish is ready, which means it can already be served to the table.

2. Cake with cabbage and mushrooms

This dish is considered to be lean, because mushrooms are the substitute for meat. This option is perfect for those people who still adhere to the post in these holidays.

That is, meat dishes may be present on the table, but it is always important to provide the choice to guests that can follow the old good traditions.

Preparation of such a cake will not take too much time, because for its foundations we will use the ready-made dough.

A small amount of vegetable oil is added to a preheated frying pan, on which we will fry our cabbage to complete readiness. Cut the mushrooms with small slides and fry on a separate pan with the basil. The roasting process will take at least 10 minutes, while the preparing mixture should be pouring soy sauce.

Next, proceed to the preparation of potatoes, which you need to boil until complete readiness and add prepared oil and milk to it. In essence, we are preparing mashed potatoes, which will become part of the filling. Mushrooms are mixed with cabbage and cheese, then add cooked mashed potatoes.

Heat the oven to 210 degrees, in which we place two cortis of puff pastry. Already after 15 minutes, the cakes will be fully prepared, after which they will need a little time so that they are completely cooled.

We clean apples and cut into small cubes that you need to fry in a frying pan by adding a small amount of sugar. Next, we form the pies themselves, placing an equal number of filling in the dough.

Pies will be ready for 15 minutes after their placement in the oven, while the oven should be warmed up to 200 degrees.
