Crostini Platter With a Choice of Toppings- Revised

No Comments 18 September 2010

by Esther Serouya

Serve the assorted toppings in small bowls on a tray  in the center of the overlapping toasted crostini.

Your guests will help themselves, and the crostini will stay fresh and crispy.

For the Crostini:

  • simply cut a french bread into wedges and brush with olive oil mixed with crushed garlic,  and  a sprinkle of kosher salt.
  • Toast for 10 minutes @ 350 degrees
  • Helpful tip from Martha Stewart: For an extra layer of flavor, use a garlic- or herb-infused oil. To plan ahead for a party, bake the crostini toasts up to a week in advance, and top just before serving. To store, keep at room temperature in a resealable plastic bag, up to 1 week.

Sun Dried Tomato and Olive Tapenade:

1 cup sun dried tomoatoes soaked and drained

1/2 cup pitted kalamata olives

2 tsp capers

1/2 tsp minced garlic

3 tbs olive oil

blend everything in blender till smooth

Homemade Babaganoush:

4 small eggplants

1/4 cup lemon juice

1 tbs olive oil

1/2 tsp garlic chpped

1/2 cup tehini

salt and pepper

Slice the eggplant lengthwise and roast face down on tray till soft about 40 mins.

Discard seeds, scoop out and mash the flesh.add remaining ingredients and mix well.

From Martha Stewart:

Basil Tomato Crostini:

Yields topping for 30 crostini

1 pint chopped grape or cherry tomatoes

1/2 cup chopped fresh basil leaves

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 teaspoon red-wine vinegar

Coarse salt and ground pepper

Directions

In a bowl, combine tomatoes, basil leaves, olive oil, and red-wine vinegar; season with salt and pepper. Top crostini with topping.

Tehini Miso Dip:

1 cup miso

1 1/4 cup tehini

1 cup shredded carrots

Blend miso in blender with 1 cup of water

Add tehini and shredded carrots season with salt and pepper.

From Jamie Oliver:

Squashed Cannellini Beans with Garlic

Pick the leaves off a couple of sprigs of rosemary and pound them gently in a mortar and pestle with a little salt. Add a glug of extra-virgin olive oil and stir, then put to one side. Fry two sliced cloves of garlic in a little olive oil until lightly golden. Add 1 ¾ cups of good-quality drained and rinsed cannellini beans and continue to simmer gently for seven minutes. Season the beans well with salt and pepper and a swig of red wine vinegar, then mash them up using the back of a fork until you have a coarse purée. Smear your hot crostini with the bean purée and spoon your rosemary oil over the top.

Shabbat Roasted Chicken-Six Ways

No Comments 01 September 2010

We dug up these recipes from our archives- perfect for the holidays…..

These unbelievable roasted chicken recipes are from  Mark Bittman’s blog ….Of course I recommend using organic kosher chicken.

All of these recipes are perfect for Shabbat and can be modified for the  Passover Seder.

PLEASE let me know if your family likes these new dishes!

Which one is your favorite?

Simplest Whole Roast Chicken, Six Ways:
Makes 4 servings
Time: About 1 hour
This method works because the high heat provided by the heated skillet cooks the thighs faster than the breasts, which are exposed only to the heat of the oven. It gives you nice browning without drying out the breast meat, and it’s easily varied. If at any point during the cooking the pan juices begin to smoke, just add a little water or wine (white or red, your choice) to the pan. This will reduce browning, however, so don’t do it unless you must. I suggest serving the pan juices with the chicken (you can call it sauce naturel if you like).
1 whole chicken, 3 to 4 pounds, trimmed of excess fat
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
A few sprigs fresh tarragon, rosemary, or thyme (optional)
5 or 6 cloves garlic, peeled (optional)
Chopped fresh herbs for garnish

Directions for Creating this Kosher Recipe
1. Heat the oven to 450°F. Five minutes after turning on the oven, put a cast-iron or other heavy ovenproof skillet on a rack set low in the oven. Rub the chicken with the olive oil, sprinkle it with salt and pepper, and put the herb sprigs on it if you’re using them.
2. When both oven and pan are hot, 10 or 15 minutes later, carefully put the chicken, breast side up, in the hot skillet; if you’re using garlic, scatter it around the bird. Roast, undisturbed, for 40 to 50 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the meaty part of the thigh registers 155–165°F. 3. Tip the pan to let the juices from the bird’s cavity flow into the pan (if they are red, cook for another 5 minutes). Transfer the bird to a platter and let it rest; if you like, pour the pan juices into a clear measuring cup, then pour or spoon off some of the fat. Reheat the juices if necessary, quarter the bird (see the illustrations on page 685), garnish, and serve with the pan juices.
Herb-Roasted Chicken:
A little more elegant: Start the cooking without the olive oil. About halfway through, spoon a mixture of 1/4 cup olive oil and 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley, chervil, basil, or dill over the chicken. Garnish with more chopped herbs.
Lemon-Roasted Chicken.
Brush the chicken with olive oil before roasting; cut a lemon in half and put it in the chicken’s cavity. Roast, more or less undisturbed, until done; squeeze the juice from the cooked lemon over the chicken and carve.
Roast Chicken with Paprika:
With good paprika, quite delicious: Combine the olive oil with about 1 tablespoon sweet paprika or smoked pimentón. Roast Chicken with Soy Sauce(for Passover, use soy sauce substitute). Chinese-style roast chicken, made easy: Replace the olive oil with peanut or neutral oil, like grapeseed or corn. Halfway through the cooking, spoon or brush over the chicken a mixture of 1/4 cup soy sauce( for Passover, use a soy sauce substitute), 2 tablespoons honey, 1 teaspoon minced garlic, 1 teaspoon grated or minced fresh ginger (or 1 teaspoon ground ginger), and 1/4 cup minced scallion.
Roast Chicken with Cumin, Honey, and Orange Juice.
Sweet and exotic: Halfway through the cooking, spoon or brush over the chicken a mixture of 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed orange juice, 2 tablespoons honey, 1 teaspoon minced garlic, 2 teaspoons ground cumin, and salt and pepper to taste.
5 More Ways to Flavor Simplest Whole Roast Chicken:
There are many ways to flavor a roast chicken; here are some simple ideas to get you started:
1. Lemon: Use 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice in addition to or in place of olive oil.
2. Lime: Use 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice in a soy sauce mix (as in the Roast Chicken with Soy Sauce variation) or with some minced jalapeño or serrano chiles or hot red pepper flakes, chopped fresh cilantro leaves to taste, and a tablespoon or two of peanut oil (use Passover substitutes).
3. Honey-Mustard: Combine 2 tablespoons to 1/3 cup mustard with 2 tablespoons honey and rub the chicken with this mixture during the final stages of roasting.(use mustard substitute for Passover cooking).
4. Wine: Put 1/2 cup white wine and 2 cloves crushed garlic in the bottom of the roasting pan; baste with this in addition to or in place of the olive oil mixture.
5. Curry: In place of the olive oil, use neutral oil, like grapeseed or corn-or butter. Combine 1/2 cup coconut milk and 2 tablespoons curry powder and baste the chicken with this mixture during the final stages of roasting.(please use caution with recipe #5 for kosher Passover ingredients).

22 Summer Fast and Kosher Grilling Recipes by Mark Bittman

22 Summer Fast and Kosher Grilling Recipes by Mark Bittman

1 Comment 08 July 2010

Recently, Mark Bittman featured a great article featuring 101 Fast Grilling Recipes.
We’ve edited out the un-kosher ingredients and pared it down to the top 22 summer grilling ideas for all of our kosher cooks!
Which ones are your favorites?  Comment below and let us all know!
1. A winter dish, summer style: Brush thick slices of fennel bulbs with olive oil and grill over not-too-high heat. Cut oranges in half and grill, cut-side down. Put fennel on a bed of arugula or watercress, squeeze grilled oranges over top. Garnish with fennel fronds.
2. Best grilled artichokes: Cut artichokes in half, scoop out the choke, parboil until tender. Grill, cut-side down, until lightly browned; grill a couple of halved lemons, too. Combine the juice from the grilled lemons with melted butter, or margarine, or Earth Balance, and spoon over the artichokes. Finish with parsley.
3. Tahini tofu steaks. Thin tahini with lots of lemon juice and some minced garlic. Cut a brick of firm tofu into four slabs and brush with sesame oil. Grill over a moderate fire, turning a few times, until marked and crisp outside and custardy inside. On the last turn, baste with the tahini sauce. Serve on thick tomato slices with a drizzle of soy sauce and chopped basil, Thai if possible.
4. Spice-rubbed carrots: Roll peeled carrots in cumin, salt, pepper and brown sugar. Char, then move them away from direct heat and cover the grill until carrots are tender.
5. Grill bread; grind in a food processor to make coarse bread crumbs. (You can add garlic and/or parsley and/or Parmesan, or not.) Grill asparagus until tender. Top with bread crumbs and olive oil.
6. Brush slices of beet with olive oil and grill slowly until tender and lightly browned. Top each slice with a little goatcheese and some salad greens.
7. For perfectly ripe tomatoes only: Grill tomatoes, any size, until hot and lightly charred but not bursting. Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and serve with fresh mozzarella (or, even better, burrata) and grilled bread.
8. Halve and grill radicchio (or Belgian endives); drizzle cut sides with honey or plain vinaigrette, pesto or parsley pesto. Or just brush with oil .
9. Grilled guacamole: Halve and pit avocados; lightly char them, then scoop out the flesh. Grill halved red onion, too. Chop, combine, add tomatoes, lime, garlic and spices if you like
10. Root vegetable of your choice: Slice celeriac — or jicama, big potatoes, daikon or yams — and grill slowly, until very tender and browned. Drizzle with olive oil or melted butter and sprinkle with chopped rosemary or sage and olive oil.

11. Choose another root. Slice it, but this time char lightly and leave it crunchy. Chop and toss with chopped cilantro, a pinch of cayenne and juice of grilled lime.
12. Rub thick zucchini slices with a mixture of fresh or dried dill, yogurt, olive oil and lemon. (Or use pesto or parsley pesto.) Grill slowly.
13. More shopping than cooking: Grill an array of radishes on little skewers, four to six each. Serve with butter, salt and bread.
14. Halve Belgian endives. Brush with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper and grill over moderate-to-low heat, turning once or twice, until soft and browned. Finish cut-side up and sprinkle with grated Parmesan; close the grill to melt cheese.
15. Lightly char whole or halved heads of baby bok choy; drizzle with soy sauce and top with chopped scallions.
16. Peel and thickly slice a not overly ripe mango. Brush very lightly with neutral oil and grill just until softened; sprinkle with cilantro and/or mint and lime juice (you might as well grill the lime first, too).
17. Grill pineapple (or anything, really, from tofu to eggplant). Make a sauce of half-cup peanut butter, a tablespoon (or more) soy sauce, a dash (or more) sriracha chili sauce, a handful of basil or mint and enough warm water to thin. (I’m tempted to say, “Throw away the pineapple and eat the sauce,” but the combination is sensational.)
18. An idea whose time has come: Halve and grill peaches, nectarines or apricots. Brush with barbecue sauce or, if you want to be sophisticated, a mixture of bourbon, sugar and mint, or simple syrup laced with basil.
19. An idea whose time will come in September: Halve and grill pears or apples. When they’re done, drizzle with yogurt, honey and a pinch of cardamom.
20. Grilled fruit salad, and why not? Toss grilled watermelon (really good), peaches, plums, pineapple and kiwi with honey, a little salt, lemon juice and tarragon (not much), chervil, basil or mint (or a combo).
21. Cut grapefruit in half. Sprinkle with brown sugar; grill, cut-side down. You might top this with chopped pistachios or a little honey.
22. Grilled poundcake (store-bought is totally fine) topped with grilled fruit sauce, strawberries in sugar, yogurt, ice cream, whatever.

Moroccan Spiced Chicken

Moroccan Spiced Chicken

No Comments 05 July 2010

The Moroccan flavors of cumin, cinnamon and lemon add a nice twist to grilled or roasted chicken. Butterflying the chicken takes minutes (or have your butcher do it – even faster) and the flattened chicken cooks evenly and in a fraction of the time it usually takes to cook a whole chicken, producing a juicy bird with a crisp golden skin.

  • 1 whole chicken (3-4 pounds)
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced (through a garlic press)
  • 2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. Aleppo pepper (or a few dashes of cayenne)
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 1-2 T lemon juice
  • freshly ground black pepper

1. Butterfly chicken:  with poultry sheers, cut along the length of the backbone on either side and remove it.  Turn chicken over and with the palm of your hand, press down on the breast to flatten the chicken.  Pat dry with paper towels.

2.  Make spice paste:  combine garlic, spices, olive oil, lemon juice and freshly ground black pepper to taste in a small bowl.  Rub the paste over both sides of the chicken, gently loosening the skin under the breasts and thighs with one finger and rubbing some of the paste between the meat and the skin.  Cover loosely with plastic wrap or foil and refrigerate for an hour or more, or overnight if you wish.

3. Cook over indirect heat skin side up on a grill, covered, until done (about 40 minutes for a small bird, longer if bigger). Alternately roast in the oven, making sure not to overcook it as it will cook faster than a whole chicken usually does.  You can also use this rub for chicken parts – make sure to loosen the skin and rub the paste underneath. Serve with lemon wedges.

For video instructions on how to butterfly a chicken see this demonstration on Fine Cooking’s website.

Serves 4.

Roasted Zucchini Chips

No Comments 02 July 2010

This is a great side dish to a meat or dairy meal. It also looks great as a garnish to any type of fish. A mandolin will make the slicing of the zucchinis much quicker (make sure to wear a protective glove).

Serves 4-6                                                              

8 Medium sized green zucchinis

olive oil

Pam Olive oil

Kosher salt

Garlic powder

dried parley

parchment paper

mandolin for slicing

Instructions:

Slice the zucchinis on a mandolin on the middle setting. The zucchinis should be thin. Layer zucchini slices on a tray with parchment paper. Try not to overlap slices too much because you want them to cook evenly.

Add a general amount of pam and olive oil on both sides of zucchini slices.

Generously sprinkle garlic powder. Sprinkle dried parsley and season with salt to taste.

Roast on 425 watching closely. Zucchini slices are ready when they begin to toast and edges of slices start to curl up

Pulled BBQ Chicken Sandwiches

Pulled BBQ Chicken Sandwiches

No Comments 01 July 2010

This is unbelievably delicious and easy, especially if you buy a rotisserie chicken or use leftover roast chicken. Kids love this piled onto soft sandwich buns and it’s perfect for guests since it can be made in advance and reheated.

Taking the skin off the chicken reduces the fat and making a quick BBQ sauce yourself allows you to control the sugar, oil and imitation smoke flavor that’s usually loaded into the bottled brands (but if you’re feeling lazy, use the best bottled brand you can find).

You can make this spicy or mild to your taste and try and find smoked Spanish paprika if you can – it adds a wonderful smoky flavor.

  • One whole roasted, barbecued or rotisserie chicken
  • Sandwich buns

BBQ Sauce:

  • ½ medium onion, finely chopped (about ½ cup)
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 T chili powder
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • ½ tsp. Aleppo pepper
  • ½ tsp. smoked paprika
  • ½ tsp. sea salt
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 2 T Dijon mustard
  • 2 T soy sauce
  • 2 T Worchester sauce (fish free version-according to Jewish halachah  it not permissible to eat fish with meat in the same dish)
  • 1 T cider vinegar (or white wine vinegar)
  • 2 T honey
  • ½ cup water
  1. Sauté the onion in 1 tablespoon oil (preferably canola) over med/low heat until soft and translucent (about 10 minutes).
  2. Add in minced garlic and spices and sauté for 30 seconds.
  3. Add in remaining ingredients and stir until thick, about 10 minutes.
  4. Add salt and pepper to taste. If you like it spicy, add a dash or two of cayenne pepper. Set aside.
  5. Remove skin from chicken. Pull the meat off the bones and shred finely (I do this with my hands or you can use 2 forks to shred).
  6. Combine with BBQ sauce in a pot over low heat, stirring occasionally, 5-10 minutes.

Serves 4-6.

Make Falafel From Scratch

2 Comments 19 April 2010

Falafel, Parve, Serves 6

Don’t be intimidated to make falafel from scratch. Once you read the recipe, you will see its fairly simple. So go ahead and get cooking to celebrate Israel’s Independence Day.

I like to serve falafel with warm pita (or even a wrap), sliced tomatoes, hummus and tehine.

Note: a cooking thermometer is needed for this recipe

Falafel, Parve, Serves 6

Ingredients for this Kosher Recipe for Falafel

1 1/4 cup dried chick peas

2 cloves garlic

1 medium onion, finely chopped

1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro

1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

1 tsp fine sea salt

3/4 tsp. ground cumin

1/2 tsp. ground coriander

1/2 tsp. black pepper

1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper

6 cups vegetable oil (for frying)

To Start:

Soak chick peas in cold water to cover by 2 inches in a bowl at room temperature for 12-24 hours. Drain and rinse well.

Puree chick peas with garlic, onion, cilantro, parsley, salt, cumin, coriander, pepper, baking powder and cayenne pepper in a food processor until mixture is smooth (about 2 minutes).

Spread puree in a 15 x 10 inch baking pan and set on a counter to dry, uncovered, for one hour.

Scoop 2 tablespoons of the puree onto a wax paper-lined tray, then press and pat with your fingers into a 2 inch wide patty. Make a small dent in the center of the patty with the tip of your pinky finger (to help cook evenly). Continue, arranging patties in one layer on wax paper.

Heat about 1 inch of oil in a 5 quart heavy pot until thermometer registers 340 degrees. Working in batches of 4-6, gently drop patties into hot oil to fry for 2-3 minutes, turning occasionally until golden brown. Using a slotted spoon, transfer cooked falafel patties to a paper towel lined platter to drain.  Be sure oil returns to 340 degrees between batches.

Falafel may be served warm or at room temperature, as a side dish, an appetizer, or even a main dish.

***For a low fat alternative, place falafel patties on a lightly greased baking sheet and spray them with oil. Bake at 375 degrees until golden.

This delicious falafel recipe is from “The Best of Lottie’s Kitchen” cookbook. To read more about Lottie’s Kitchen in Jerusalem click here.

Kosher Contessa: Rack of Lamb Persillade

No Comments 17 March 2010

The Barefoot Contessa is one of the most talked about chefs nowadays. Her recipes are easy to do, and the end result looks as if you were slaving away in the kitchen. While many of her recipes mix dairy and meat, they can be adapted to fit our kosher lifestyle.

Rack of Lamb Persillade

Adapted from Barefoot in Paris

Persillade refers to a combination of minced fresh parsley and garlic that’s added to a dish near the end of the cooking.

Serves 4

2 racks of Lamb, Frenched

Good Olive Oil

2 teaspoons Kosher Salt

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

2 cups loosely packed fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves, rinsed well and dried

1 tablespoon chopped garlic (about 3 cloves)

4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted margarine, melted

1 cup matzoh meal crumbs

2 teaspoons grated lemon zest (2 lemons)

Directions

Preheat oven to 450 degrees

1. Place both racks of lamb in a roasting pan, fat side up. Rub the tops with the olive oil and sprinkle with the salt and pepper. Roast the lamb for ten minutes.

2. Meanwhile, place the parsley, garlic, and margarine in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the steel blade and process until finely minced. Add the matzoh meal and lemon zest and process for a second until combined. Taste mixture and adjust seasoning if necessary.

3. Take the lamb out of the oven and quickly press the parsley mixture on top of the meat. Return immediately to the

oven and roast for another 15-20 minutes.

4. Remove lamb out of the oven and cover with aluminum foil. Allow it to rest for 15 minutes, cut in double chops, and serve.
