Crunchy Taco Salad by Chef at Home Cookbook

No Comments 15 May 2011

Last Shabbat I made a crunchy, colorful chopped taco salad inspired by my favorite  new gourmet kosher cookbook, Chef At Home published by the Magen David Yeshivah PTA. If you haven’t heard about this new 400 page kosher cookbook yet, than make sure you order a copy soon from Yvonne Franco . Once you have it in your kitchen, you wont be able to cook a meal without it!

Add this healthy new salad to your holiday lunch menu. Its a great change from the traditional boring salads that we’ve gotten used to.

For this healthy kosher recipe, I used healthy organic tacos from Omni Health located on avenue U in Brooklyn. I also added fresh chopped jicama which adds a delicious low calorie crunch to the mix.

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 head romaine chopped
  • 2 small ripe tmatoes
  • 2 cucumbers
  • 1 red onion chopped
  • 1 can chickpeas
  • 1 can red kidney beans
  • 1 avocado cubed
  • 2 corn on the cob, steamed and shucked
  • jicama cubed into small pieces
  • several tacos, toasted and broken into 1″ pieces

Dressing:

  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup of olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sugar or Splenda
  • 1-2 teaspoons of cumin
  • juice of one lemon
  • juice of one lime
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon light mayonnaise
  • salt and pepper

Directions for this Kosher Recipe

  1. In a large serving bowl combine all ingredients except for taco chips.
  2. Blend salad dressing ingredients
  3. Pour and toss
  4. Top with taco chips and serve.

Esther’s Spiced Barbecued Slider Recipe

7 Comments 15 May 2011

My very good friend Esther Saada is known to be a gourmet cook and entertains with first rate quality and class. This slider recipe is a great weeknight dinner or perfect for upcoming summer barbecues The secret to these sliders being gobbled up is the small size and the slider buns that she buys from Jimmy Hanon who sells mezonot or Hamotzei buns.  They come in 1 bite or 2 bite size. Esther recommends the 2 bite size bun. Jimmy Hanon sells his slider buns to a lot of the NYC kosher caterers, and he sells to individual customers as well. Give Jimmy a call at (718) 753-3213. Tell him Esther sent you!

p.s. You can also try this square slider burger press that I own from Williams Sonoma! It really gives the burgers that perfect shape and looks very restaurant style!

 

Hi Marlene,

I made these sliders about 2 inches in diameter. Allow for shrinkage when u cook meat. I barbecued the  sliders and had the fixings on the side. Ketchup, pickles, and I fried fresh onions.   It was a hit! Not one left!

Pureed Peas with Mint for Your Babies or Grandkids

No Comments 15 May 2011

Sometimes I wonder what life would have been like if I had a computer when my  kids were growing up.

On one hand, I would have loved reading blogs like Sissy and Marley, from moms that gave me good advice about how to make organic baby food, and  how to add spices to my kids food, and  warn me about what pacifiers had poisons in them like BPAs, Phthalates, and PVCs….

But on the other hand, I can just imagine baby food encrusted on my laptop  as I breast fed and tried to type at the same time, or g-d forbid getting engrossed in a Neiman Marcus online super sale while my toddlers were pulling each other’s hair out….

Fast forward to 2011!

What do you think of this baby food recipe?? Its actually a healthy  recipe for babies who should be enjoying their vegetables. Mint is also said to help toddlers with gassy issues. Why not introduce babies 8 months and older to spices like garlic – minced or powdered,basil, rosemary, dill, oregano, lemon zest, ginger, cinnamon
mint or nutmeg? Of course ask your doctor first, and check out a variety of great baby food cookbooks out there such as this book by Annabel Karmel. Top 100 Baby Purees: 100 Quick and Easy Meals for a Healthy and Happy Baby

If you are a grandma, why not whip up a batch of this gourmet baby food, pour into a sterilized jars, maybe wrap with a little ribbon and drop it off to your daughter or daughter in law’s house?  Here is one healthy baby food recipe to try:

PEA PUREE WITH MINT

Ingredients: Organic Peas {fresh or frozen} + Fresh Mint

Fill a pot with a few inches of water. Place peas in a steamer basket and insert into pot. Bring to a boil. Cover. Steam the peas until tender, about 3 minutes (thawed frozen peas) to 5 minutes (fresh or frozen peas). Remove the basket and allow peas to cool. Reserve the cooking liquid for pureeing. Puree peas and 2 small mint leaves in a food processor until smooth. Thin to desired consistency using reserved liquid.

Kitchen Notes:

Store in refrigerator in an airtight container. Or fill ice cube trays with puree, cover and freeze. Transfer cubes to freezer bags. Label and date. Thaw cubes overnight in refrigerator.

Refrigerate up to 3 days

Freeze up to 3 months
