green-bean-fennel-stew

Savory green bean-fennel stew

This green bean and fennel stew contains a burst of bright flavors, from sharp ginger to savory tarragon to the fennel itself. The combination of flavors is a bit unusual in a way that will make you wonder why you don’t eat this more often. This is a great way …

broccoli

Broccoli with balsamic onions and pine nuts

Does broccoli have an “image problem”? So declared the New York Times in a fascinating piece two months ago, examining what it would take for an ad agency to turn broccoli into a trend. The article makes a convincing argument to the effect that many people simply don’t like broccoli, …

beet-pancakes

Beet-leek mini pancakes

Sure, I suppose you could consider this a Hanukkah dish. But I consider this an all-the-time dish that suits anyone from toddlers to dinner party guests. These beet patties had very humble roots in my kitchen: They started out as a way of repurposing old vegetable soup. I blended the …

cooking-lahoh

Making lahoh like a professional Yemenite baker

It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say this is the most difficult recipe I’ve ever written about. I have tested it literally 50 times over the course of three years, and my family has eaten hundreds of mediocre flatbreads as I attempted to crack the secret to perfect, bubbly lahoh …

buckwheat-casserole

Buckwheat casserole with roasted figs and grapes

I had a festive holiday meal in mind when I came up with this dish. Really, with seasonal fruits arranged on top, how could it not be festive? And at the base is filling, nutritious buckwheat, cooked up with onions majadera-style. All in all, it’s a parve/vegan dish that’s fit …

cabbage slaw

The surprising tarragon cabbage slaw that everyone will love

This is a recipe that’s due to make your greengrocer run out of tarragon. I had the pleasure of hosting some of our other local food bloggers for Katherine’s farewell evening, and this was a surprise hit. It’s only cabbage slaw, but everyone loved it, and at least one person …

mushroom-fava-beans

Braised mushrooms and fava beans with spring garlic and scallions

There’s something invigorating about visiting the market on one of the earliest days of spring. I don’t mean spring in the true calendar sense, as sticklers will point out that officially we have a week or two of winter left. And I also don’t mean it purely in terms of …

mustard-fennel-pear-salad

Mustard greens salad with marinated pear and fennel

My greens guy must really like me. I mean, given how much I spend at his stand every week, how could he not? One day he went chasing after me as I made my way through the Carmel Market. Admittedly, I’d just paid for a big bag full of vegetables …

hamin-wheat

Sweet caramelized wheat hamin with winter vegetables

Can recipes become out-of-date? I certainly hope not. I made this lovely wintry stew a week and a half ago, in the midst of one of Israel’s fiercest winter storms in decades. But life happened — I was busy, least of all redesigning this site, as some of you have …

wheat-soup

Wintry mangold-wheat soup

There are soups for every season. This is a soup for winter. We are in the midst of Israeli winter at its most intense. It rained for three days straight, and oh, what rain! Some places even had a bit of snow. Fine, laugh. I know it’s not exactly winter …
