Quick Borscht Recipe. Vegetarian

Posted on 10th of February, 2014 by Lévana

Borscht

Quick and hearty. A triumph of sweet-and-sour match. I call it quick, because I have no intention (and neither do you, I’ll bet!) of spending half the day making the classic high-maintenance beef-based original. I just love the idea of a great vegetarian soup, good with any meal and in all...

Chia Almond Pudding

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 Shabbos Menu: Cool and Playful Summer Recipes

Posted on 30th of June, 2013 by Lévana

IMG_2450

On impossibly hot days, rather than make up a menu and try to stick to it, I decide to look around me, and let the produce displays surprise me and inform my menu. Since going this route guarantees nothing but the best and freshest, it is a totally calculated risk....

Swiss Chard Mustard Greens Chicken Lamb Tajine Recipe

Posted on 30th of June, 2013 by Lévana

IMG_2444

When I went food shopping this week, I saw gigantic and gorgeous bunches of Swiss Chard and Mustard Greens. That decided my main course right there and then: A Tajine! Don’t just talk about nutrition, just throw it in the pot, you will never go wrong! I am always reminded...

Kasha with Onions and Mushrooms Recipe. Quinoa Variation. Gluten-Free

Posted on 18th of June, 2013 by Lévana

Kasha Mushrooms Onions

Kasha, onions, mushrooms: Perfect expat Jewish food. Kasha, known to much of the world as buckwheat, is a staple in many Eastern European countries. Toasting it gives it a delicious nutty taste, and rolling it in beaten egg keeps every kernel separated and plump. Do not skip either of these very quick...

Magnoodles for Shabbos Dinner: Can Pasta be Smart AND Delicious?

Posted on 1st of June, 2013 by Lévana

IMG_2377

Shhhh, don’t tell anyone! I get really lazy about preparing Shabbos meals on hot summer days when we have no guests, in part because my husband always votes for salads, in all shapes or form, and very little else. So imagine my excitement when I received Aileen Magnotto’s box containing...

Kosherfest 2012 Standout New Products

Posted on 25th of November, 2012 by Lévana

Kosherfest in Secaucus was great fun this year. I and quite a few others marveled at how the staff at Kosherfest pulled off the whole show with their hands often tied behind their backs, so soon after Hurricane Sandy, which crippled many warehouses and made transportation a nightmare. Although I...
