Re- post from 2012 because its such a fabulous Purim party recipe!!!!

If you don’t already a copy of Robin Jemal’s new cookbook, then you are indeed missing out on one of the best  gourmet kosher cookbooks that you could ever own. Robin’s hot off the press cookbook is chock full of easy to follow,  brand new twists on our traditional but sometimes boring routine recipes. Recipes such as Rosemary Lemon Cornish Hens, Sliced Steak Pizza with Arugula Truffle Oil and Oven Dried Tomatoes, Panko Crusted Zucchinni Rollups with Eggplant Tomato Sauce, and Butternut Squash Ravioli are just some of the mouth watering recipes in this fabulous collection of  soon to be your families’ favorites. 

This past Shabbat Lunch I served my family these pulled brick roast sandwiches on homemade challah rolls, and I can’t tell you the excitement on the table as everyone gobbled them up. 

Although I am not such a meat eater, I couldn’t help but snatch a couple of bites of this tender sandwich. It was delicious!  I would suggest adding this recipe to your Purim menu, along with Robin’s recipe for Deboned Chicken and Baked French Fries. Sorry -You will have to buy the book for the chicken recipe! Click here to purchase Dare to be Different! Its worth every penny!

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


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


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.

Back by popular demand- Gladys’s healthy baked ziti! Great idea for a Rosh Hashana lunch or a Sukkot lunch!


“Hi Marlene its Gladys. Here is my Spaghetti Squash Ziti recipe. Its low-cal and healthy!!!”

  3. Sprinkle a little drizzle of olive oil on all 4 halves . Then face them down and put them on a tray and bake them on 350 degrees for about an hour and ten minutes.
  4. Next take the tray out and take a fork n gently scrape the inside of the spaghetti squash. The squash should fall out and look like spaghetti.
  5. Place it all into a pyrex and put a half of cup of marinara sauce on it. Mix it all in so its not juicy.
  6. Then sprinkle kosher muenster or kosher low fat mozzarella cheese on top and cover all the squash.

What’s for dinner????

Everyone has a different variation of a pizza recipe.  My pizza recipe is from the  “Deal delights cook book #2”:

  • 1 pkg of active dry yeast,
  • 3 cups of flour,
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 tbs. vegetable oil
  • 1 cup of hot tap water

In food processor pour in water, sprinkle yeast. Pulse machine on and off just till yeast dissolves.

Add flour and salt and oil. Process 10-15 seconds or until dough forms a ball (if sticky add flour and if dry add water) let dough rise for 10 min and roll out

Pizza topping  #1– Slice  a mozzarella cheese ball and place on dough. Pour Don Pepino 15 oz can pizza sauce (sold at most grocery stores) over cheese. Sprinkle lightly with parmesan cheese. Then drizzle with extra virgin olive oil.

Pizza topping #2- My friend (Celia Haddad) gave me her recipe which I am going to try this week.  She puts sauce and mozzarella cheese. Then she mixes baby arugula lightly with vinaigrette dressing and when the pizza comes out of the oven she puts the salad on top. It sounds yummy.

Enjoy the rest of your holidays and remember you can’t go wrong with a pizza.  Anyway u make it is sure to be a hit!!!
