    Sephardi Kitchen's NA*ME Tag Recipes!

    My growing collection of Middle Eastern/North African/Sephardic/Persian recipes. Some are old family recipes, some are adapted from cookbooks, and others I invented All are Kosher, and a few are specifically Sephardic/Mizrachi recipes. My personal top 3 from this list so far: 1) Aash e Anar (Persian Pomegranate Stew) 2) Rosewater, Saffron and Pistachio Ice Cream 3) Scacchi-- Italian/Sephardic Passover "Lasagna"

    This is one of my favorite recipes! It is a thick Persian stew (or aash) flavored with fresh herbs, tangy pomegranate syrup and tiny meatballs. You may want to prepare the aash a day in advance, it tastes even better the second day, after the flavors have melded. The meatballs may be omitted or substituted with vegetables such as mushrooms. I STRONGLY discourage substituting pomegranate juice for the paste, I can't imagine the flavor coming out properly. But who knows, it may work- so let me know if it does come out :) Pomegranate paste/molasses can be found at many ethnic groceries, and most Middle Eastern stores. My favorite brand is Cortas.

    Recipe #385599

    This Spanish-Mediterranean vegetable salad is healthy, light, and great for the summer months.

    Recipe #322042

    This is a Middle Eastern dip made of eggplants and tahini. Roasting the eggplants under a broiler or in the oven gives it a nice smokey flavor.

    Recipe #317311

    This is my favorite recipe for baklava- a decadent Mediterannean/Middle Eastern dessert, made of paper-thin filo dough, nuts, and a honey syrup.

    Recipe #317223

    This simple salad is very refreshing and wonderful addition to a summer meal. You can easily add cubed or sliced fresh mozzarella cheese to make it more substantial.

    Recipe #317625

    Nan-e Barbari is a popular Persian flatbread. It is often eaten with salty soft cheese such as feta with herbs (sabzi) or jam and a cup of tea for breakfast. It is similar to Armenian matnakash bread. I made this once for my Iranian boyfriend's parents and they approved :)

    Recipe #453533

    This was the first time I ever made custard-based ice cream, and it was delicious! The rose water and saffron go great together, without overpowering each other. I doubled the original recipe, since most ice cream machines need at least 4 cups of liquid (also because my family gobbled it up in no time!).

    Recipe #318129

    This vegetarian Georgian soup is flavored with onions, dill, parsley and lemon juice, and infused with cilantro (fresh coriander). It is light and nice to serve in the summer months.

    Recipe #317631

    Georgian cuisine frequently uses walnuts, as in this unique egg salad. A small amount of hot pepper flakes are included in the recipe, but the amount can be increased according to tolerance (make sure not to overpower the flavor of the sauce!). Recipe adapted from "Sephardic Cooking" by Copeland Marks. NOTE: I haven't tested this recipe yet, but you may want to try blending in the egg yolks along with the walnut sauce, and serve it like devilled eggs.

    Recipe #317803

    This Italian and Libyan- influenced dish is great to serve in the summer months.

    Recipe #317633

    This sweet-sour stew is enjoyed by many Sephardic families during the Passover seder and other festive events. It has a longer cooking time, but requires very minimal work on your part and tastes even better the next day! Note: Meat+ fruit combinations are fairly common in Middle Eastern cuisine, but can take getting used to if you have not tried it before. If the stew is too sweet for your taste, just add more sliced lemon or lemon juice. Also, do not brown the chicken before adding the water- the pieces will retain their shape instead of falling apart to create a stew.

    Recipe #423518

    Also known as "Skordozoumi", this Sephardic soup is thickened with eggs, yogurt and feta cheese. Adapted from "Sephardic Flavors" by Joyce Goldstein.

    Recipe #386741

    Popular in Jewish communities throughout the Mediterranean and Middle East, these beautifully marbled rich maroon or brown eggs get their soft texture from the slow cooking process. The addition of onion skins to the liquid are absorbed by the porous shells, which cause the coloration. Huevos Haminados are traditionally served at the Passover Seders of Calcutta, Turkey, Greece, Morocco and Tunisia and others, with slight regional variations. They can also be slowly cooked overnight in a crockpot for Shabbat. The name reflects the eggs' origin in Medieval Spain.

    Recipe #317802

    This deliciously spiced sweet-and sour stew was adapted from "Persian Cooking for a Healthy Kitchen" By Najmieh Batmanglij. The original recipe calls for firm, unripe peaches and saffron. I had none and substituted nectarines/omitted the saffron and it still came out great.

    Recipe #384525

    This is a dairy version of the cookies my fiance's grandma would prepare for Purim (a Jewish holiday in the spring). The crisp shortbread dough encases a sweet filling made of walnuts and rose water. Easy to make, and delicious! Note: the original recipe is parve and uses oil in place of butter. I have never made cookies without butter or margarine and was scared to try it without knowing the proper proportions. If you know how to do it, please let me know! :)

    Recipe #452331

    Known as Avgolemono in Greece and Aarshe Saak in the Middle East, this tangy velvety soup is a staple at many meals. Aarshe Saak typically has small meatballs in it, while Avgolemono traditionally has rice and no meat. However, there are many regional and personal variations, and this is mine. This version I came up with has has chicken and spinach/mushrooms to make it more filling. Feel free to omit these ingredients or experiment! Note: I always "eyeball" quantities when I cook, so these amounts may not be perfectly exact- always adjust quantities to taste :)

    Recipe #435318

    The rice stuffing is very simple to make and turns out beautifully! If barberries are not available, chopped fresh cranberries or sour cherries are a good substitution. Preparation time does not include marinating time. Adapted from Persian Cooking for a Healthy Kitchen" by Najmieh Batmanglij.

    Recipe #397386

    This tangy soup is low-fat, quick and easy to prepare! It is a copycat-of a-copycat recipe from the soup served at Reza's, a Persian restaurant in Chicago (so called because I have never been to Reza's, but once had someone else's imitation of it!). Sumac powder and dried limes can both be found at Middle Eastern groceries or ethnic stores.

    Recipe #453522

    The addition of sliced beets give these turnip pickles a beautiful pink color and distinctive taste. Pickled vegetables are commonly eaten throughout the Middle East, and jars of these pickles frequently decorate the windows or counters of many cafes. Adapted from Claudia Roden's "A Book of Middle Eastern Food".

    Recipe #318108

    Adapted from Najmieh Batmanglij's "Persian Cooking for a Healthy Kitchen". I have not yet had the chance to try this recipe, but it looks delicious and I cannot wait to test it out!
