I’d like to take the opportunity to step out of the confines of my L.A. kosher kitchen and introduce you to another L.A. kosher kitchen. On wheels. Friends, meet The Kosher Palate.

For the past two weeks I’ve been cooking my way through, Balaboosta, Bold Mediterranean Recipes to Feed the People You Love, by Chef Einat Admony. As the title suggests the recipes and accompanying memoirs emphasize the relationship between chef and guests.

Of the dozens of lentil soup recipes I’ve read, I always go back to this one, given to me by my mother in law. The kids love it and they are the toughest and most honest critics I’ve ever crossed. Lentils contain protein, which make it a great hearty vegetarian dish.

Last week I posted a full Shabbat menu with recipes and references but neglected to include the details regarding the first course salads. I confess, until now I’ve never measured what I put into the recipes and I didn’t want to give approximations. Our family eats these salads every Friday night and Saturday for lunch. The seven dishes in this post are the staples of our first course. Without them, it just wouldn’t feel like Shabbat.

This hidden vegetable trick is so sneaky it almost feels wrong. I couldn’t believe it when my extremely picky eater cleaned her plate and asked for seconds. The steamed squash adds a subtle sweetness and is completely hidden by the sauce.

In honor of Tu B’Shevat, the Hebrew date that marks the “new year” for trees and is traditionally celebrated by feasting on fresh and dried fruit, I would like to share with you a roasted fruit recipe that I came across when I attempted a six week fruit and vegetable cleanse following the High Holidays.
The original recipe comes from Reboot With Joe. Joe Cross, is the producer and star of the documentary Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead, which chronicles his 60-day juice fast and weight loss initiative.
