Quinoa with Fried Onions and Chestnuts Recipe

Posted on 7th of April, 2011 by Lévana

Levana-Quinoa

I love quinoa, on Passover and year-round. A staple in South America, it’s a nutritional powerhouse, and delicious too, and so versatile! Quinoa comes in white, red and black, as I did here, so mix and match and get fun results each time. Please do not skip the step where...

Salmon Baked in Basil Tomato Sauce Recipe

Posted on 6th of April, 2011 by Lévana

SALMON-IN-TOMATO-BASIL-SAUCE

One of the best salmon dishes you will ever taste. Two simple secrets: the first is hardly a secret by now, but I can’t emphasize it enough: do not cook a second longer than instructed; the second is, bake it in a pan only large enough to fit the fish...

Chocolate-Dipped Coconut Meringues Recipe

Posted on 6th of April, 2011 by Lévana

Levana-Meringue-300x204

Kids, please: Don’t let’s get into a turf war with the distinguished and wonderful French Macarons, or with the  somewhat  less distinguished and ubiquitous canned Passover Macaroons that linger for months after Passover, or anything in between: Here come Meringues!  So move over sweeties, and let’s all play in the...

Artichokes and Carrots in Lemon Sauce Recipe

Posted on 4th of April, 2011 by Lévana

ARTICHOKES-AND-CARROTS-IN-LEMON-SAUCE

 Artichokes are a Sephardi favorite. In Morocco they are a staple, and I remember a variety I haven’t seen anywhere else: tiny, with pointed leaves as sharp as thorns, which we used to eat by the dozen at the end of a meal as dessert, much as the Japanese eat...

Posted on 25th of March, 2011 by Lévana

Charif3

When life gives you jalapenos, make charif! One Saturday night, Erev Purim, my daughter Bella complained that she had placed her Shabbos produce order online, and that something got lost in cyber-translation, turning 4 jalapenos and 6 tomatoes into 4 pounds jalapenos and 6 pounds plum tomatoes. But since she...
