Moroccan Almond Shortbread Crescents Recipe

Posted on 10th of April, 2012 by Lévana

Almond Shortbread

A great Sephardi favorite, called ghriba. Traditionally we make them round and top them with a little cinnamon, but I find that no matter how carefully I store them, the tops always start crumbling and looking ragged, so I shape them in crescents, and they behave themselves and keep their...

Posted on 24th of February, 2012 by Lévana

Moroccan Eggplant Salad with Preserved Lemons and Olives Recipe

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 unless it...

Spicy Moroccan Chicken, Liver and Lamb Meatballs Recipe

Spicy Moroccan Chicken, Liver and Lamb Meatballs Recipe

I always loved this Sephardi dish I grew up with: In the finished dish the chicken breasts were diced, the chicken livers were whole and the lamb was shaped into meatballs. I made it and it was quite delicious but a little messy. When I recently asked my mother how...

Moroccan Chraimi Fish Recipe. Fishballs Variation

Posted on 1st of February, 2012 by Lévana

Moroccan Chraimi Fish Recipe. Fishballs Variation

Excerpted from my latest cookbook, The Whole Foods Kosher Kitchen. Israelis affectionately called this dish chraimi, insisting that’s what Moroccans call it. (Hello! Never heard of the word in Morocco! Something probably got lost in translation . . .) This is precisely the kind of dish where preserved lemon makes...

Preserved Lemons Recipe

preserved-lemons-levana-cooks

Picture via http://foodlanerecipes.blogspot.com There is no Moroccan cooking without preserved lemons, and the store-bought variety doesn’t even begin to compare with homemade. They take minutes to prepare and two weeks to “incubate,” totally unassisted, and the result is a few months’ supply of the single element that will convert many of...

Moroccan Lamb, Lima Beans and Spinach Soup

Moroccan Lamb, Lima Beans and Spinach Soup

This soup is overlaid with Moroccan flavors, and smells as heavenly as it tastes. For many years, my classroom was in Lincoln Square Synagogue. The teacher himself later told me that he found teaching exquisite torture on Monday nights. I could have told them what I had known all along:...
