Moroccan Chickpea Soup Recipe

10th of April, 2012

Chick Pea Soup

Chickpea soup is much dreamier than – and nowhere near as plebeian as – it sounds. Especially when you make chickpea soup, as I do, with all our wonderful Moroccan seasonings. The French term for chickpea is “pois chiches,” meaning something like pea’s poor relatives. Wow, if poor and modest...

Moroccan Hot and Sweet Parsnips Recipe

3rd of April, 2012

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

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...

Moroccan Spicy Nut Truffles

My Moroccan Nut Truffles are for almond and walnut nut lovers only: the famous Pfeffernusse, Sephardi style.  Moroccan to be exact. Their trademark scent is cloves, lots of it. My nut truffles are perfect for Passover too, and gluten-free without even trying. You will love the way the baked nut...

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...

Moroccan Lamb, Lima Beans and Spinach Soup

12th of December, 2011

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:...

Vegetable Latkas and Burgers Recipes. All Variations

27th of November, 2011

Vegetable-Burgers-LevanaCooks

Latkas and burgers are wonderful year-round. Great children food too, as it sneaks in all those ingredients they would often scorn, but are totally integrated in burgers, where they do their unseen magic.  Fear of Frying? Start by going over my tips for frying efficiently and safely. Forget about those...

Upcoming Cooking demo in NYC: Glorious Tajines. Gluten-Free

24th of November, 2011

The appeal of Moroccan food is universal. The aromas and flavors of the dishes do their magic every bit as much as the simplicity of their preparation. There’s just one more secret: What we call somewhat dismissively “side dishes” and which gets shuffled around on our dinner plate simply doesn’t...

Pastilla Recipe

22nd of September, 2011

Typical food and fresh Moroccan on wooden table with woven sack

Pastilla is one of the world’s great dishes, and it takes just one delightful bite to understand why. Pastilla epitomizes Moroccan cuisine, spicy and sweet, delicate and intriguing.  Pastilla is more labored than the dishes I usually share, but then this is a very special treat. I admit I toast the...
