Artichoke and Lima Bean Tajine

Tajine is the name of the earthenware pot that gave its name to all dishes cooked in it. In our native Moroccan cooking, there is no such thing as a “side dish.” Equal time for vegetable dishes and meat or fish dishes —this is where our respect for veggies comes from. Vegetables...

Halvah

Quick Halvah Bars: We all love the wonderful taste of halvah, that great Sephardi dessert classic confection starring Tehina paste and sold all over Israeli and Middle Eastern markets, but hardly ever get near it because of the prohibitive amount of sugar it contains.
