Thursday, 29th July 2010

Raisins or dried cranberries
Toasted Pine Nuts

Put the red cabbage and the drained mandarins in a bowl.
Make the dressing from 6 tablespoons of the mandarind juice, brown sugar, olive oil, white vinegar, salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste.

Sprinkle generously with toasted pine nuts before serving.
This salad keeps well and improves as the dressing is on for longer.

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Monday, 26th July 2010


115g/4oz butter or margerine at room temperature
50g caster sugar
110g dark brown sugar
1 egg
½ teaspoon vanilla essence
170g plain flour
½ teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda
Pinch of salt
8oz chocolate chips


Preheat your oven to 350F/180C/Gas 4 and line 2 large baking sheets with bakewell paper.

With an electric mixer, cream the butter (or margarine) and both sugars together until light and fluffy.

In another bowl, mix the egg and vanilla, and then gradually beat into the butter/margerine mixture. Sift over the flour, bicarbonate of soda, and salt. Finally add in the chocolate chips and mix well to combine.

Place heaped teaspoonfuls of dough at least 5cms apart, as the mixture will spread out.

Bake until lightly coloured, which takes around 10-15 mins (if you like a softer chewy cookie, bake for less time).

Transfer to a rack and cool.

Best eaten within 1 week (although probably won’t be there after a few hours!)

Freezes well.

Alternative – double chocolate chip cookie:  Replace 2 to 3 tablespoons of the flour with drinking chocolate or cocoa 

Hazelnut and Bean Burgers

Thursday, 15th July 2010

Hazelnut and Bean Burgers

This is a very tasty and nutritious vegetarian burger, perfect for the nine days.  


½ cup (3.5 oz, 100 g) ground hazelnuts (you can also use ground almonds or other ground nuts) 

One 7-oz (200 g) can tomatoes 

One 14-oz (400 g) can beans drained (haricot, kidney or pinto beans are all good for this) 

1 cup (3.5 oz, 100 g) bread crumbs (or matzah meal)

¼ tsp. ground cumin (optional)

salt and pepper to taste

soy sauce to taste



 Pre-heat oven to 375F (190C)

Mix all the ingredients together. Using a food processor or blender, make into a smooth purée. Form into burger shapes (if the mixture is not stiff enough, add more breadcrumbs or a little flour). Bake the burgers on a tray lined with Bakewell or greaseproof paper for 30 to 40 minutes.

This recipe makes six to eight burgers.


Courgette and Carrot Loaf

Thursday, 8th July 2010



3 cups self raising flour

1 tsps cinnamon (optional)

1/2 tsp salt

1 cup sugar

2 medium carrots peeled and coarsely grated

2 medium courgettes unpeeled and coarsely grated

1/2 cup sunflower oil

2 large eggs


1/2 cup dark brown sugar

1/2 cup rolled oats or crushed cornflakes

1/3 cup plain flour

1/8 tsp salt

2 oz block margarine


1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C)

2. Lightly grease bottom and sides of a 9" by 13" baking tin or 2 loaf tins

3. Combine flour, cinnamon, and salt.

4. In a separate bowl combine sugar, carrots, courgettes, oil and eggs.

5. Add in the flour mixture and stir until combined.

6. Put the mixture into the tins.

7. Make topping, mix the dry ingredients.  Rub in the margarine to make a crumble - to bread crumb stage.

8. Sprinkle the crumble mixture over the batter and bake for approximately one hour.


This is a very easy and delicious recipe, which can be served as a warm vegetable/kugel on a Friday night, and equally delicious served cold for Shabbos lunch.

The crumble topping can be doubled as it is delicious and more of it is good!

This can also be made as muffins for sheva brochas or parties (for this you do need the extra topping).

The sugar in the recipe can be reduced and it is still delicious!


Parev Ice Cream

Friday, 2nd July 2010

8 eggs separated
2 glasses caster sugar
2 glasses vegetable oil

Beat the egg whites until stiff (use a perfectly clean and dry bowl or the egg whites won’t whip up properly), once at the correct consistency add a little of the sugar and continue whisking for a few seconds.  This helps the egg whites keep their volume.

Place the egg yolks in a food processor with the rest of the sugar and your chosen flavouring and blend well, add the oil slowly through the feeder in the top of the food processor.  The mixture should thicken.
Fold the egg yolk mixture into the egg white mixture, and make sure the two mixtures are combined well.
Pour into a container and freeze.

Suggested Flavours:
A teaspoon of vanilla essence
Half cup (or more) drinking chocolate or cocoa.
6 to 10 chocolate mints
strawberrys (add an extra half a glass of oil as the water content of the strawberrys makes the ice cream too solid when frozen.
Half a can of peaches or apricots
A sliced mango
Peanut butter

Chopped marshmallows, Chopped meringues or Any other chopped cookie can be added to the ice cream at the stage where the egg white mixture and egg yolk mixture are combined.

The flavours are only limited by our imagination!!!

Tin of tomatoe puree
A couple of cloves of garlic
Salt, pepper and paprika
Fry the onions in olive oil until golden brown.

Microwave for ten minutes on high – or longer if the peppers are not soft yet.
