Whole Wheat Meat Hammentashen Empanadas for Your Purim Menu

8 Comments 01 March 2015

 

Last year, as I was racking my brains for a new  Purim menu idea,  I decided  to take the easy way out and re-create my standard empanada recipe. In a pinch, I transformed it into a meat version of a Hammentashen. Usually I fold this empanada meat mixture into a wonton skin, and in the olden days (when I was young and skinny) I used to individually deep fry them as a special treat on Sukkot. Later on in life I got a great tip from my older sister, and I sprayed the meat filled-wonton skins with Pam (see*note below) and baked them till they were crunchy. For a last minute Purim appetizer, I decided to use the same delicious meat mixture and bake  it as a hammentashen. Here’s how I did it:

  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 lb chop meat
  • 1/2 green pepper, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 2 tsp white vinegar (the vinegar tenderizes the meat)
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1 can tomato sauce
  • 10-20 stuffed green olives, sliced
  • 1/4 cup of sesame seeds
    1. Saute onions, pepper, garlic in oil adding garlic last.
    2. Mix in meat, oregano, tomato sauce, white vinegar and sauté all ingredients till meat is brown, making sure to chop the meat with a fork as it is cooking.
    3. Add sliced olives and mix with a fork.
    4. Place 1/4 cup of sesame seeds into a bowl.
    5. Take a whole wheat Mazor pizza dough and press into sesame seeds.
    6. Place pizza dough on a flat dish and mound 2-3 tablespoons of meat inside.
    7. Fold up and pinch all three edges as you would fold your hammetashen to form a triangle. You may freeze these meat hammentashen at this point.
    8. Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes or until bottom of hammentash is lightly brown.
    9. Serve and enjoy!
    10. *P.S. I really wouldn’t recommend spraying Pam on my food anymore. This misto Olive Oil spray is much healthier and a cleaner way of adding some spritz to your baking and cooking.

Whole Wheat Panko-Encrusted Fish Tacos with Ezekial Tortillas

No Comments 23 August 2012

I had my first delectable fish taco experience at  the kosher Fish Grill in LA., and ever since, then I have been wanting to  add  fish tacos to my dinner menu. There are many fish taco recipes out there, and I have modified this one by adding whole wheat Panko crumbs and the Ezekiel Tortilla wraps. Fun to serve at dinnertime allowing the family to slop on all of their ingredients, or wrap them up prettily and slide on a tooth pick for dinner guests.

Either way- its a sure fire winner recipe! Enjoy!

Whole Wheat Panko-Encrusted Fish Tacos with Ezekial Tortillas

 
  • 1 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise or Hellman’s olive oil mayonnaise
  • 3 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1 jalapeno, seeded and diced (1 tsp)
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 4 eggs beaten
  • 2-3 cups panko breadcrumbs
  • 2 lb white fish fillets, cut into thin strips
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 package flour tortillas Ezekial Brand
  • 1 cup shredded cabbage
  • 1 avocado chopped
Preparation:

1. For the sauce, combine mayonnaise, lime juice,jalapeno and Dijon; refrigerate until serving.

2. Beat egg with a fork in a  shallow dish. Pour whole wheat panko on another plate and season with salt, pepper and garlic salt. Dredge each fish strip in egg mixture then in panko, pressing crumbs to adhere.

3. Heat oil to medium heat in a large sauté pan 4 minutes on each side, turning once until until golden brown or fish flakes with a fork.

4. Warm tortillas in oven for one minute. Place sauce and then sautéed fish atop tortilla. Top with shredded cabbage (coleslaw mix in a bag), avocado and salsa, if desired. Watch the video above to see how the pros wrap their tortillas!

Braised Veal Stew With Olives and Topped with Gremolata

No Comments 03 February 2012

When it gets chilly out, all I want to do is eat stew. This braised veal with tomatoes and olives is delicious over wide egg noodles or papardelle and is pretty easy – once you’ve browned the meat and onions, you just throw everything in and let it simmer until it’s fall-apart tender. It reheats beautifully and is even better the next day.

I make a gremolata (the chopped herb accompaniment of lemon zest, garlic and herbs traditionally for osso buco) and sprinkle it on top for a fresh, bright finish. 

By Lisa Ades”

Ingredients:

  • 2 lbs stew veal
  • 1 large onion, finely diced (about 2 cups)
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 carrots, finely diced (about 1 cup)
  • 3 stalks celery, finely diced (about 1 cup)
  • 1/3 cup red wine
  • 2 Tbl tomato paste
  • 1 28 oz can crushed tomatoes
  • canola oil
  • salt and pepper
  • bay leaf
  • olives ½ cup sliced, green or black or a mixture

Directions:

1) Dry the veal well with paper towels and brown on all sides in a little oil in batches. Don’t overcrowd the meat or it will steam, not brown. A non-stick pan works well for this. Remove to a bowl.

2) Saute the minced onion, carrots, celery and 1 tsp. kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper in remaining fat (or add a little oil) until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes.

3) Add in tomato paste, minced garlic and red wine to the onion mixture, and sauté for a few minutes until the wine has reduced.

4) Add back in the browned veal, the crushed tomatoes and the bay leaf, and cover and simmer on a low heat for an hour to 1.5 hours, until the veal is very tender.

5) Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve with broad egg noodles or papardelle. Sprinkle the entire stew with the gremolata when serving if desired, or pass a small bowl with the gremolata separately.

GREMOLATA:
• Zest of one lemon (about 1 tsp.; I use a microplane to zest the lemon, then chop it)
• 1 clove finely minced garlic
• 1 Tbl. minced fresh parsley, thyme or rosemary (I use a mixture of all 3)

Combine all ingredients and run a knife over all of it on a cutting board to mince further and blend.

Serves 4-6
