My neighbor Yossi made some potato pancakes and stopped me on the street to try them (true story). I thought they were fluffy and delicious but unfortunately he didn't have an actual recipe to share, just the general idea. So I went home and messed around and this is what I came up with.
Originally, this recipe was for turkey breasts, but I use it for roasting a whole bird. The combination of all of the fresh vegetables and the lemon juice (we have a lemon tree outside) makes this amazing every time
A simple quiche from a friend. Crust from "The Vegetarian Feast" by Martha Rose Shulman.
Note that the crust part of the recipe can make 2 crusts, or combined to make one larger crust. You can add more broccoli and a little more of the filling-ingredients to fill the crust(s) up more.
I wanted to make Majadra, just like my kids get for lunch at their Israeli schools. Majadra is basically a combination of lentils and rice. Sounds simple, but if it isn't done right children will somehow know the difference. This is how I use what a site called IsraeliKitchen.com had to offer. The recipe basically involves preparing the lentils and rice separately (but in that special, correct way) and then mixing them together.
I found this somewhere on the internet, and if the internet is to be believed it originated in "Foods of the World: The Cooking of India", Time-Life Books. The original recommends some fancy preparation using fresh green beans, but I just use frozen and it works fine.
