Moroccan Hot and Sweet Parsnips Recipe

Posted on 3rd of April, 2012 by Lévana

Moroccan Hot and Sweet Parsnips Recipe

Poor parsnips too often serve as crowd actor, and then get discarded (as in chicken soup), but here they are “it”. Who knew they could be so fabulous? hot and sweet is a great treatment for them, and the easiest. They are delicious at room temperature as well. Sephardi Tsimmis?...

Moroccan Eggplant Salad with Preserved Lemons and Olives Recipe

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...

Almond Macarons with Chocolate Coffee Filling Recipe. All Variations

You will never think of macaroons as institutional fare after you taste these elegant and easy treats, close cousins of the amaretto cookies. Gluten-free without even trying! If you get lazy and would rather use store-bought ground almonds, also called almond flour (warning: you will pay dearly for the extra...

Brussels Sprouts and Zucchini in Tomato Sauce Recipe. Pasta Adaptation

Posted on 20th of September, 2011 by Lévana

Brussels Sprouts and Zucchini in Tomato Sauce Recipe. Pasta Adaptation

Mediterranean flavors at their best. A frequent Passover treat at my table. I find brussels sprouts somewhat underrated and underused in our country.  They are much more exciting than they sound, and much less innocent than they look; and their pungent bite provides a nice counterpoint to the mildness of...

Levana Cooks with Osem’s Matzah Products

Posted on 13th of April, 2011 by Lévana

I have always chuckled at the old joke that in Israel, every child’s first words are “Ima, Abba, Bamba”. Bamba is a peanut-butter snack manufactured by Osem that children in Israel and beyond seem to be connected to almost surgically: Can’t leave home without it! Osem is the oldest and...

Levana-cooks-Chocolate-Beet-Coconut-Cake-Recipe

It is unfortunate that in America, beets invariably conjure up loaded remarks about, uhmmm, never mind . . . I am always looking for ways to sneak them in, as in this cake, where they do their magic even while they totally escape detection: The result is this dense, moist,...

LEVANA COOKS WITH OSEM MATZAH PRODUCTS: FARFEL WITH ONIONS AND MUSHROOMS RECIPE

Posted on 13th of April, 2011 by Lévana

farfel

Farfel is nothing more than matzah cut up small and calibrated for quick cooking. I use the Osem whole wheat version, with wonderful results. You will love the robustness of the whole-grain flavor. No need to wait for Passover to make this treat! Oh I know it doesn’t exactly look...

LEVANA COOKS WITH OSEM MATZAH PRODUCTS: APPLE RAISIN FARFEL RECIPE

Posted on 13th of April, 2011 by Lévana

FARFEL-HOT-CEREAL

This delicious and super-nutritious dish is sure to be equally at home as a side dish and as a breakfast or even dessert! Kind of a new-age Matzah Brei but without the eggs. I created it years ago for my then-small daughter Bella, a cereal eater who at first asked...
