Warm Chickpea Salad with Arugula for Passover

No Comments 15 January 2012

Many Sepahrdic Jews eat chick peas on Passover, and I am lucky to be one of them. If you do buy chick peas in a can for Passover, make sure it is Kosher certified for Passover.

If you are of  Ashkenaz descent, then start using up your chametz chickpeas by trying this savory recipe ASAP!

To read more about  kitniyot on Passover, click HERE.

This recipe is too good to pass up.  It took 10 minutes to prepare, and took another 10 minutes for the family to devour it. Use more olive oil, salt, pepper,vinegar  and honey if you have  a lot of arugula. Serve as a weeknight tasty side dish, or as a midday main course with friends.

Check out this REVIEW of this great Mark Bittman cook book.

From : How to Cook Everything, Completely Revised 10th Anniversary Edition: 2,000 Simple Recipes for Great Food

Makes: 4 side- or 2 main-dish servings

Time: 20 minutes with precooked beans

  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced peeled fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups cooked or drained canned chickpeas
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 4 cups arugula leaves
  • 1 small red onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • 4 hard-cooked eggs, quartered (optional)

Kosher Sephardic Passover Recipe Directions

1. Put the olive oil in a deep skillet over medium heat. When hot, add the ginger, garlic, and cumin and cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant and the ginger and garlic are soft, 1 to 2 minutes. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, then stir in the chickpeas until hot and coated in the oil and seasonings, about 3 minutes more.

2. Remove from heat and with a fork, stir in the vinegar, honey, and 1 tablespoon water. Mash a few of the chickpeas as you stir to add texture to the dressing. Put the arugula and red onion in a large bowl and toss with the warm chickpea dressing. Taste and adjust the seasoning. Serve immediately, garnished with hard-cooked eggs if you like.

Easy and Delicious Shabbat Chulent for a Cozy Winter’s Night

4 Comments 17 November 2011

 

Thank you Leah from Cook Kosher for sending in this fabulous warming meat Chulent recipe! Its a perfect dish to make our families glad that they are joining with us enjoying a cozy meal inside with the family on a wintery Friday night!

Easy and Delicious Shabbat Chulent for a Cozy Winter’s Night

  • 2 large onions, diced
  • 1 cup oil (Leah’s sister in law insists that you need the whole cup of oil for this recipe but I would reduce the amount to the most 1/4 cup of oil)
  • 1 package flanken meat, cut into cubes
  • 4 tbsp garlic powder
  • ½ tbsp cayenne pepper
  • 1½ Tbsp paprika
  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp onion soup mix
  • 1½ cup barley
  • 1 cup mixed beans
  • 9 potatoes, cubed
  1. Sautee 2 onions on low heat in the oil until softened (about 8 min)
  2. Add cubes of flanken on a very high flame and sear the meat until it is browned on all sides. (This locks in the moisture and keeps the meat soft).
  3. Drain beans and barley and combine with onions and meat.
  4. Add paprika, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, soup mix and soy sauce and mix well.
  5. Cover with water and let it cook for at least 2 hours on medium flame.
  6. Add diced potatoes and ensure that the entire chulent is still covered in water. Let it keep cooking on med flame. It should be bubbling all the time.
  7. Right before shabbos, transfer everything to a crock pot and ensure that there is enough water covering chulent at all times. Keep it on low till shabbos day.
  8. NOTE: Be sure to soak the beans and barley overnight before making the chulent. This softens the beans and removes the gas.

Meatballs in Tomato Cumin Sauce by Jennifer Abadi

1 Comment 10 November 2011

Thank you Jennifer Abadi for this delicious Sephardic recipe for meatballs in tomato cumin sauce ! So cozy for a cold winter’s  night!

Meatballs in Tomato Cumin Sauce:

  • ¾ pound ground chuck
  • 2 tablespoons matzah meal or dry plain bread crumbs
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons cold water
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground allspice
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ¼ cup finely chopped yellow onions
  • Small dish of ice water

Tomato Cumin Sauce:

  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ cup finely chopped yellow onions
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • Two 6-ounce cans unsalted tomato paste
  • 4 cups cold water
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons firmly packed dark brown sugar
  • 1¼ teaspoons ground cumin
  • ¼ teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon

TO SERVE

  • 1 recipe Basic Syrian Rice
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen and defrosted peas, steamed and kept warm, for garnish

Directions

1. Prepare the meatballs. Combine all the meatball ingredients, except the ice water, in a medium-size bowl and squeeze together with your hands until well blended and the meat is very soft. Shape into individual meatballs by rolling them between the palms of your hands, 1 tablespoon at a time. (Dip your fingers in the dish of ice water and keep your palms wet to keep the meat from sticking. If it does stick, scrape it off with a blunt knife and return it to the bowl.) Place the meatballs on a plate and set aside.

2. Prepare the sauce. Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat and cook the onions, stirring, until golden and soft, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the garlic and cook until golden, another 1 minute, stirring constantly so the garlic does not burn. Add the rest of the sauce ingredients and cook for 5 minutes.

3. Gently drop the meatballs into the sauce. Stir gently to coat the meatballs with sauce, being careful not to break them, and cook over low heat, covered, until the meatballs are fully cooked through and fairly soft but firm, 30 to 35 minutes.

4. Serve the meatballs and sauce hot over the rice in a large serving bowl and garnish with the steamed peas.

Marinated Olives

Italian olive oil, both oil and an oil bottle ...
Image via Wikipedia

 

The world was not created in one day. So too your Jewish holiday and Shabbat meals. Prepping and cooking in advance is a must when it comes to entertaining for a large bunch. These marinated olives are the perfect appetizer for a scrumptious Shabbat lunch, especially accompanied with Syrian mazza such as lahamagine and kibbe . They are also perfect in the fridge for that unexpected guest.

SERVINGS: Makes 2 pounds

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon fennel seeds *
  • 2 pounds of green and black olives, assorted (2 1/2 cups)
  • 5 large garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 tablespoon crushed red pepper
  • Zest strips from 1 orange, cut into fine julienne
  • About 1 cup extra-virgin olive oil

Directions

  • In a small skillet, toast the fennel seeds over moderate heat until fragrant, about 2 minutes.
  • Rinse the olives in a large strainer; drain well. Transfer the olives to a medium bowl. Stir in the toasted fennel seeds, garlic, crushed red pepper and orange zest and add enough olive oil to cover. Let stand at room temperature for at least 4 hours before serving.

Make Ahead

The olives can be refrigerated for up to 10 days. Bring to room temperature before serving.

Notes:

Fennel Seed has a delicate flavor; light and sweet, similar to anise.

Healthy Brown Rice Sauteed with Spinach and Mushrooms

2 Comments 18 October 2011

This is another healthy and easy kosher recipe from the Magen David Yeshivah Chef at Home gourmet kosher cookbook(page 206).  I made it for a Sukkot meal, but of course its great for any Jewish holiday menu, or Shabbat meal. Since I was voted to cook the meal for the second night of Sukkot (always so HARD because everything has to be done from the day before!) I cooked the rice and the mushrooms in advance, and last minute re-sauteed the mushrooms and adding in the fresh baby spinach till it wilted.

I multiplied this recipe by 4 because I was having a lot of company and I also added in a cup of cooked wild rice which was not in the original recipe.

Kosher Ingredients:

  • 1 cup uncooked brown rice
  • 1 cup COOKED wild rice according to the instructions on the bag
  • 2 cups Imagine No- Chicken Broth Broth No Chicken
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1 pound (total) portobella and button mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 bag fresh cleaned baby spinach leaves

Directions:

  1. Combine washed rice and broth in a saucepan and bring to a boil, stir, reduce heat cover and simmer about 45 minutes till cooked.
  2. In another skillet, saute chopped  onion, mushrooms and garlic till tender. Stir in lemon juice and oregano.
  3. Right before serving, re-heat mushroom mixture and add in spinach until wilted- don’t overcook or you will lose the pretty bright green color of the fresh spinach.
  4. Toss brown rice with cooked wild rice, and mushroom and spinach mixture. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Lisa’s Endive, Green Apple, and Pistachio Salad

2 Comments 14 September 2011

I first met Lisa Ades about three years ago, when I was searching high and low for a film maker to help interview 300 of our communities elders for the Joseph J. Sitt Sephardic Heritage Museum. Being a sheltered yeshivah girl from Brooklyn, I was truly mystified as to how I would go about such a project, but Hashem had his plan.

After asking around in supermarkets, exercise class, (“does anybody know a film maker….?) etc. and at marjan games, I finally got a call from my friend Barbara Azizo who said, “remember when you asked me about a fillm maker? I just remembered I DO know someone….”

After interviewing several other talented people, I knew that Lisa was the right person for the job. Lisa’s grandfather  Joe Ades had come to this country from Aleppo at about the same time that mine had arrived. Her family was raised in Brooklyn, N.Y., but at a certain point, Lisa’s dad had decided to move out of state. Lisa went on to film school, won several awards for directing the Channel 13  New York Series, among others.

When Lisa heard about this opportunity,  she gave up her public career  for the chance to dig into her family roots alongside me, both of us being exactly the same age. All in all, we have interviewed over 300 people together with Joe Sitt as executive producer, to produce a 10 part documentary series on the history of the Sephardic Community. Stay tuned for Episode 3- Life in Bensonhurst- The Depression 1930’s…… to be seen October 9 in Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center …. tickets going fast……

By the way, Lisa is a gourmet cook whose recipes have been featured in Saveur Magazine….

” Hi Marlene-I got tired of eating boring lettuce leaves every night so created this bright, crunchy salad, incorporating all the shades of green for spring – pale green endive, bright green apple, deep parsley and gorgeous pistachios. We liked it so much I made it again the next night. And the next night… Lisa Ades”

Lisa’s Endive, Green Apple, and Pistachio Salad:
• 4 large heads endive (or 6 small ones) about 1.5 lbs.
• 1 large green apple
• 1 lemon
• ¼ cup flat leaf parsley, chopped coarsely
• ¼ cup dry roasted, unsalted pistachio nuts

Dressing:
• 1/2 shallot, minced (about 1 Tbl.)
• 1 Tbl. sherry vinegar
• ½ tsp. Dijon mustard
• 1 garlic clove, smashed lightly
• 3 Tbls. extra virgin olive oil
• Salt and pepper
• a half teaspoon of honey

1. Cut apple into 4 large pieces around the core and julienne or cut into thin strips. Remove to a small bowl and toss the apple well with the juice of one lemon. This will prevent the apple from discoloring (and adds a citrusy flavor to the salad).

2. Separate endive leaves; stack them and cut into long strips on the diagonal. Put them in a large bowl with the chopped parsley. Mix in the apple and pistachios. This can be refrigerated until ready to serve.

3. Make dressing: in a small bowl, mix the minced shallot with the vinegar and let macerate for 10 mins to ½ hour. Wisk in the mustard, a whole garlic clove lightly smashed with the side of a knife, salt and pepper to taste and honey.

4. When ready to serve, remove garlic clove and dress salad, using a little dressing at a time until it’s just coated.

    Artichoke Caponata for a Holiday Lunch Appetizer

    No Comments 03 September 2011

    Kosher Recipe: Artichoke Caponata

    Caponata di Carciofi (Caponata of Artichoke), Courtesy of Chef Laura Frankel, author of Jewish Cooking for All Seasons

    This caponata does not have the usual tomatoes and eggplant. Caponata is a relish of vegetables and can really include anything in season. This version is a concoction of early spring and late winter vegetables. I serve it with roasted chicken, duck and even fish. It adds springtime flair to any table and for Passover we drizzle our matzah with olive oil and herbs and then dollop some of this caponata on top of it for a crunchy snack.

    Yields about 2 cups

    RECIPE INGREDIENTS

    1 pound baby artichokes or frozen artichoke hearts

    1 fennel bulb-julienne (save fronds for garnish)

    2 leeks-white parts only, chopped

    3 cloves garlic

    1 tablespoon tomato paste

    ½ cup white wine

    ½ cup golden raisins (optional)

    ¼ cup pine-nuts

    ¼ cup fresh mint-torn or cut into thin strips (chiffonade)

    ½ cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

    2 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme-

    Olive oil

    Salt and pepper

    Kosher Recipe

    Directions cont’d
    1. To clean the artichokes, use a paring knife to cut the outside leaves free from the body of the vegetable. Continue turning your knife around the artichoke until you have an equal amount of green leaves with yellow tops. Be sure to leave the stem intact. You can peel some of the tough green fibers from the outside. The stem gives the artichoke a pretty shape! Cut the artichoke in half lengthwise and scoop out the choke (if any) with a melon baller. Place the artichoke pieces in a bowl of cold water with lemon juice squeezed into it to keep the artichokes from turning dark.
    2. Place a large sauté pan over medium high heat and coat the bottom lightly with olive oil. Add the fennel pieces and leeks. Sauté the vegetables until they are lightly browned and have softened. Add the garlic, tomato paste raisins and white wine. Stir together.
    3. Transfer the mixture to the insert for the slow cooker. Cover and cook on high for 3 hours.
    4. Place a small sauté pan over medium heat and add the pine-nuts. Toast the pine-nuts until they are lightly browned. Watch them carefully as then can burn quickly.
    5. Add the pine nuts, artichokes and fresh herbs to the mixture to the mixture. Salt and pepper to taste. Cover and continue cooking for an additional on HIGH.
    6. Serve the caponata warm or cold. The caponata can be made three days before serving and stored covered in the refrigerator.

    Kids Chicken Kabobs with Crushed Potato Chips

    1 Comment 10 August 2011

    I found this great kosher recipe for kids on Gourmet Kosher Cooking. Can’t wait to feed the little ones and enjoy a romantic night out!

    Ingredients for this Kosher Recipe

    • 4 boneless, skinless,(organic) chicken cutlets cut into strips
    • 1 ounce (about 15)  Flavored Onion Rings snacks from the package .(you can find healthier  kosher versions of the traditional “Wise”  brand bagged onion rings in your favorite Health Food store.
    • ½ ounce (about 7 chips)  potato chips (pareve)
    • 1 teaspoon onion powder
    • 2 dashes garlic powder, or to taste
    • 2 dashes salt, or to taste
    • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
    • 1 egg or 1/8 cup egg substitute
    • Chicken skewers (if wooden, soak for 30 minutes in water)

    Directions for this Kosher Recipe

    1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
    2. Carefully slide each chicken strip lengthwise onto a skewer. Set aside.
    3. In a large sealable plastic bag, combine the onion rings, potato chips, and all the seasonings. If you like, add extra seasonings to taste. Seal the bag and crush contents until reduced to a coarse breadcrumb-like consistency. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
    4. Prepare a large baking sheet by spraying it with non-stick cooking spray. Whisk egg into a small bowl. Take a chicken skewer and dunk it in the egg, evenly coating the chicken. Gently shake off the excess liquid and then lay chicken skewer in the seasoned crumbs. Rotate the skewer pressing it into the crumbs to evenly coat the entire piece. Place the chicken on the baking sheet and repeat with the rest of the chicken skewers.
    5. Bake in the oven for 18 to 20 minutes, carefully flipping skewers about halfway through cooking, until chicken is cooked through and coating is crispy. Cool for a few minutes. Eat plain or with duck sauce for dipping.

    You will  find yourself craving this sun-dried tomato paste. Not just spreading it on lamb chops or even hamburgers, but also tossing it with pasta and smearing it onto slices of toast. All Jewish moms will agree that this meal will be a winner with most of the gang on a moonlit summer night!
