Moroccan Chicken Tajine with String Beans

Posted on 30th of December, 2013 by Lévana

chicken string beans

My Latest Weekday Dinner Menu with Recipes

Posted on 13th of December, 2013 by Lévana

Onion Soup

I was told the dinner we hosted at our home in honor of some guests in town from Israel this past Monday was totally ridiculous (love the new slang word!). Because it was a weekday, I looked to distance myself from “Shabbos food”, plus we needed to accommodate some vegetarian...

Babaghanoush Recipe

Posted on 13th of December, 2013 by Lévana

babaghanoush

Eggplant lovers,  you’ll be happy! We all know babaghanoush is a huge favorite, with Sephardi expats and beyond (we Moroccans eat semi-industrial amounts of eggplant!), but somehow not all are created equal. I suspect the reason is that the roasting on an open flame is a wonderful idea, but the...

Posted on 2nd of December, 2013 by Lévana

IMG_0562

I made this soup just before shabbos, and even while some good stuff was going into the pot, I was still debating what direction I should take it in. My original idea was, make my usual Moroccan Fish Soup, and make a side dish to go with dinner, out of...
