10th of April, 2012

Almond-Crescents-LevanaCooks

These Moroccan Almond Cookies are a  great Moroccan/Sephardi favorite, called ghriba. Traditionally we make them round and top them with a little cinnamon. I am including the Traditional Basic Ghriba recipe here as well, so this Moroccan Almond Cookies variation, although it takes some poetic license, is a welcome change of pace,...

Moroccan Eggplant Salad with Preserved Lemons and Olives Recipe

24th of February, 2012

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 Livers and Lamb Meatballs Recipe

19th of February, 2012

grilled meatballs

I always loved this Sephardi tajine we 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 she...

Moroccan Chraimi Fish Recipe. Moroccan Fishballs Variation

1st of February, 2012

Chraimi-LevanaCooks

My Chraimi is excerpted from my latest cookbook, The Whole Foods Kosher Kitchen. Israelis affectionately call this dish chraimi, insisting that’s what Moroccans call it. (Hello! Never heard of the word Chraimi in Morocco! Something probably got lost, or should I say gained,  in translation . . .) We just...

Preserved Lemons Recipe

1st of February, 2012

Preserved-Lemon-LevanaCooks

There is no Moroccan cooking without preserved lemons, and the store-bought variety doesn’t even begin to compare with homemade. Preserved lemons 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 your dishes...

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:...
