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...

Spicy lettuce chickpea salad

One of my favorites, overlaid with Moroccan flavors. All of you out there always asking how we turn a same old, same old salad into an exciting Sephardi main course salad: You can glorify it even further by throwing in some leftover diced fish or chicken, or make it dairy,...

Matbukha (Salade Cuite) is one of our Moroccan favorite dishes, a sort of comfort food for expats and honorary Sephardis alike: See how they mop that sauce with their bread! My version has roasted garlic in it, for a an easily added wonderful layer of flavor. Shakshuka is nothing more...

I love tilapia fillets, versatile, widely available and inexpensive. I always use the large ones (7 to 9 ounces), they never let me down or go to pieces on me during the cooking process. I serve it quite often when my husband and I spend shabbos alone, and want to...
