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...

Raw Low Carb Chia FLax Almond Cranberry Pudding (recipe in this file) When my son Maimon was a teenage schoolboy, he told his father: “Tati, you know what I heard old age is? That’s when your broad mind and narrow waist switch places”. Not missing a beat, my husband snapped...

My latest party menu: This past Shabbos Lunch, the day after Simchat Torah. No meat in sight, all vegetarian and fish dishes. When I described the menu to our guests before they dug in, I could plainly see they were delighted to get a break from meat dishes after a...

My – usually virtuous enough – students and readers have asked me specifically to go all out for my Shavouot Dishes, starring mostly dairy treats, all those foods we love to hate. “With Cheese!!!”, one of them even emailed me in bold print: You asked for the splurge! The good news...

Lasagna can be made with a variety of fillings (vegetables, tomato sauce, spinach, etc.), all good. Try this no-tomato variation, my favorite. Gluten-free: You should have no trouble finding GF lasagna noodles at your health food store. Instructions: 2 red peppers, diced small 2 large red onions, diced small 3 large...

Fun and delicious, and a great choice for a vegetarian entree. As always, I ignore the eggplant’s insatiable appetite for oil, skip the frying and the slices, just enough to make them pliable and ready to roll! No problem making these rolls with gluten-free bread crumbs. These roulades will reheat...

We all observe a sort of frenzy that sets in right before (and right after) a holiday that is marked by some food restrictions. Like hoarding in prevision of a period of austerity. Let’s start with the most egregious example: Pessach. I recently attended a cook-off event for a famous...

Eggplant is a huge favorite in our Sephardi Cooking. This dish is all roasted, so it is pretty streamlined, and pretty lean. Anything not to have to fry eggplant, which gobbles up oil like crazy! The preserved lemons do make a big difference, so please don’t skip them. I have...

I don’t think Julia Child would object to a little tweaking of the French Classic, taken in a Moroccan direction. Besides, all things Eggplant are a huge favorite in North African and Middle Eastern Cooking. In Arabic we call this dish “Za’Look” , and must predate Julia’s cooking by a...

This dish is equally at home as a salad and as a side dish. I never submit to the tyranny of frying eggplant, which is not only time consuming, but gobbles up lots of oil. I have included a mushroom-eggplant combo, using exactly the same recipe, but throwing in small...
