This is the simplest dish but gets the most amazing results. Whenever I make these, the platter cannot leave the kitchen before it needs refilling. This is also a great afternoon snack that keeps the family from munching on sugary sweets before a late dinner.

This is of course a great kosher and vegan recipe for the big Super Bowl event this Sunday February 6!

Plantains have  many health benefits that you may not know. Read on:

  • A well-acclaimed diuretic, plantain is found to be extremely effective against kidney ,bladder and intestine problems.
  • It is  effective against heavy menstrual cycles.
  • Plantain is also used as a vulnerary to treat cuts and wounds. Due to easy accessibility of this wonderful fruit, it can be easily bought and crushed and applied to cuts and wounds for quick relief. Also, since plantain has a high epidermal growth, it can be used to fix damaged tissues, treat bruises and broken bones.
  • Plantain is touted as a wonderful blood cleanser.
  • Plantain, much like its yellow ripe counterpart, is extremely good for skin. Plantain juice can be effectively used to treat sunburn, ulcers, scalds and burns. It is treated as an effective substitute for aloe vera.
  • It is very effective for treating liver sluggishness and inflammation of the digestive tract.
  • Chewing plantain root can offer immediate relief from toothache.
  • Plantain is known to soothe cough reflex andis used to treat asthma, lung infections, and hay fever and any other respiratory disorders that involves mucous congestion.

How to know when a plantain is ready to cook:

Buy plantains as green as possible and allow them to ripen at home near a window.During the winter that can extend to three weeks!  If you want a plantain chip that is not too sweet, (ie. for a guacamole dip) then only allow it to turn yellow. But, if you want a sweeter treat then allow plantains to turn black (the skin will go from green to golden yellow to black). Once they are that ripe, you will know they are super sweet inside.

For this recipe, we recommend the golden yellow color:

  1. Slice Peel 3 plantains, discarding the peel. Cut them diagonally into 1-inch slices.
  2. Spread plantain pieces onto cookie sheet, toss with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Bake at 400 degrees until brown on the outside.

To Fry:

  1. Heat oil in saute pan. Place plantain in oil and fry about one minute, flip, and fry until crisp on both sides.
  2. Dry plantains on a paper towel, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

For Guacamole:

  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon red hot pepper flakes
  • 1/2 tomato, diced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. Open avocados and pull out all of the fruit with a spoon.
  2. Lightly mash the avocado with a fork as you add the garlic, lemon juice, and spices. You can adjust the spices to your taste. Fold in the tomato.
  3. To serve, put guacamole in a shallow bowl with plantain slices next to it for dipping.

Super Bowl Chili

No Comments 01 January 2011

Super Bowl Sunday is just around the corner! As a party planner I would generally be talking about table settings with a twist football.. or some fabulous take on Super Bowl. But let’s be honest ladies, our boyfriends, husbands, brothers, etc.., aren’t about to gather ’round the table and have a civilized meal on super bowl Sunday. You’re more likely to find them slightly possessed and consumed with their flat screens. With that being said, I think Super Bowl Sunday calls for good times, informality, and best of all- comfort food.

Which brings me to this…

Black Bean Super Bowl Salsa with Tortilla Crisps

Black Bean Super Bowl Salsa with Tortilla Crisps

1 Comment 01 January 2011

Salsa means “sauce” in Spanish and it is usually a condiment made from tomatoes, onion,garlic, cilantro, salt and hot peppers, with a touch of vinegar or lemon juice for acidity. The mixture is usually chopped and served fresh with tortilla chips.

Salsa has tons of vitamin C, plus, it is low in carbohydrates, fat and cholesterol. On average, a serving of salsa has about 15 calories — certainly better than your average mayonaisse based dip.

This recipe has been renamed by family members as SUPER BOWL SALSA-!

Add it to your menu for next Sunday February 6, 2011 for all the football fans that will gather by

the screen!!!

Serve with chicken or fish any night of the week,or as a healthy  snack if your kids and their friends come over to hang out.

Check out the video above from EHOW.com. The tomatoes are cooked, and corn and cumin are added. Obviously, salsa has a lot of variations so you can go with the flow, experiment, and let us know which version your family like best!

Healthy Kosher Chips and Dips for Super Bowl Sunday

3 Comments 01 December 2010

It’s that time of year again – when the whole family will gather around the TV Sunday afternoon – half to watch the game and half to watch the commercials. And while everyone has their own reasons for watching the Superbowl – they will all be in agreement about the need for great snacks. Whether you serve a full-course meal or a few things to nibble on, chips and dips are a Superbowl snacking essential. Here are some great kosher chips and dips that are exciting and different – when you get bored of the classic tortilla chips and salsa.

Baked Lentil Chips – in two different varieties – sea salt and cracked pepper and cucumber dill – these chips are totally gluten free and full of good things like fiber and protein.

Yummy-made out of lentils, adzuki and garbanzo beans!

Rice Works Whole grain Snacks – these crispy treats come in six delicious flavors – sea salt, sweet chili, salsa fresca, baked cinnamon, parmesan and tangy bbq – to satisfy the sweet and salty tooth in every member of your family. Plus they’re low fat, so you won’t feel guilty about your indulgence.

Sabra Red Pepper Hummus - there’s a reason Sabra hummus has the biggest share of the hummus market – it is just finger lickin’ good! Their red pepper variety is always a solid choice, or try the plain for a safe bet – or any of their other types!

Sonny and Joe’s Matbucha – this traditional Sephardic dish is just tomatoes and peppers cooked down and seasoned and spiced to perfection. When you don’t have the time to make your own, just pick up some from Sonny and Joe’s – a local New York company that started on the Lower East Side!

Check out more Amazon chips, dips, and cookbooks for the big day !
