Hamantaschen (Yeast Dough)
Hamantaschen (Yeast Dough)
By Rosalie Weiner @ 3:55 PM :: 19878 Views :: 439 Comments :: :: All, Desserts, Holidays, Dairy

Food Editor's Notes:

This is a recipe for the Eastern European raised dough hamantaschen, the original form of this Purim treat. It takes a little bit longer to make than the cookie dough hamantaschen, but if you like a soft, chewy texture, this is the one for you. Hamantaschen will keep, covered at room temperature, for a few days (or you may freeze them).

Haman's Ears (Orecchi Di Aman)
Haman's Ears (Orecchi Di Aman)

For the Italian Jews orecchi di Aman are as synonymous with the festival of Purim as the Hamantachen are for the Ashkenazim. There are perhaps as many versions of this sweet as there are Jewish families in Italy. I regard this recipe as the finest. From this basic recipe you can create variations limited only by your own imagination.

Guacamole Dip
Guacamole Dip
By Jamie Stolper @ 3:51 PM :: 10163 Views :: 268 Comments :: :: All, Salads, Holidays, Pareve, Vegetarian

This is a flavorful version of an old standby. It takes a bit of work, but it is well worth it to serve fresh guacamole. The pepper and tomato add color, the onion a bit of crunch, and don’t forget the cilantro for a unique taste. For extra zip, increase the amount of hot sauce and black pepper. For a smoother texture, process some or all of the avocado with the lemon juice in a food processor. (To speed up preparation, you may also use the processor to mince the garlic, jalapeno pepper, and onion - but not the tomato.) Serve with corn chips or fresh vegetables, or as an accompaniment to burgers, sandwiches, or grilled meat.

Grilled Eggplant Slices
Grilled Eggplant Slices
By Jamie Stolper @ 3:49 PM :: 9172 Views :: 180 Comments :: :: All, Salads, Holidays, Vegetarian
In Israel, eggplant is everywhere, in many forms, and is a national favorite.  Here in America, it seems one either loves it or hates it.  I'm in the latter camp and was happy to be able to partake of an eggplant dish almost every day when I was in Israel recently.  I think my favorite is simple grilled eggplant, flavored with olive oil, garlic, salt, and pepper.  It is easy to make, low in calories and carbohydrates, and can be served as an appetizer or as a vegetable with an entrée.  I actually prefer this at room temperature or cold, but it can be served hot as well.  If you use the small Italian-style eggplants, the slices are just the right size for cooking and serving whole, which looks so pretty on a plate.

Grilled Country Bread with Tomato
Grilled Country Bread with Tomato
By Lisa Chodosh @ 3:48 PM :: 33777 Views :: 1586 Comments :: :: All, Entrees / Main Courses, Poultry, Holidays

This easy treat is adapted from the traditional Catalan recipe, Pa amb Tomaquet, which translates simply to Bread and Tomato. In Barcelona and the surrounding countryside it is eaten both as a snack and as an accompaniment to meals. It also makes a delicious and portable breakfast. Use the most fresh and fragrant tomatoes you can get your hands on. Never refrigerate tomatoes - it spoils their delicate texture and flavor.

Grilled Asparagus
Grilled Asparagus
By Jamie Stolper @ 3:45 PM :: 4877 Views :: 174 Comments :: :: All, Salads, Holidays, Pareve, Vegetarian

I like asparagus, but I enjoy it more when it’s been grilled or oven-roasted, rather than steamed. The flavor is more intense and the texture a bit more chewy. This is an easy vegetable to make for an outdoor barbecue - prepare more than you think you will need, as people can’t resist picking up the spears with their fingers and munching on them before they even make it to the dinner table!
