nocrumbsleft Do you have a favorite supper you make with eggs? I love Shakshuka any time of year and rely on this recipe from Jerusalem: A Cookbook​. The eggs are on a delicious bed of Harissa, peppers and tomatoes, to name a few ingredients. It's Tunisian soul food and an absolute favorite of mine. My favorite version includes sumac instead of cumin, which may be a Tunisian swear word, but I do it anyway. It's no extra work to double the sauce and you will be so happy you did! The links for "how to's" is on my nocrumbsleft Facebook page. I made a wonderful vegan version for one guest with a caramelized eggplant instead of the egg.#tastingjrslm 2d

icookottolenghi Seafood and Fennel Soup. 8/22/15. Such a special dish to serve to some very special friends celebrating their 40th birthday! My husband and I cooked this together. It was great to have a partner in crime on this dish :) What a tremendous soup with rich, rich flavors. The soup consists of garlic, fennel, potatoes, red chili, preserved lemon, tomatoes, parsley, paprika and a pinch of saffron. You boil and simmer the soup, add the seafood (mussels, tilapia, shrimp and clams) and then add a few tablespoons of Arak, followed by reducing the soup for about 10 minutes. Such a simple recipe and so much flavor. Highly recommend this for a dinner party! This recipe is probably in my top 10 recipes of the book and I'm not even a big seafood or fennel eater! #seafoodandfennelsoup #jerusalem #tastingjrslm #samitamimi #yotamottolenghi #ottolenghi 1w

omgyummy For my dad's bday lunch/brunch I've made this @ottolenghi cauliflower cake to accompany bagels, lox, and whitefish. It's from #PlentyMore and is a cross between a quiche and a frittata. It calls for steamed cauliflower, I opted to roast it. #tastingjrslm @rainydaybites still remember your post about it - it's been on my mind since then! 1w
  •   shvetaberry Gorgeous! Hope he enjoys it!! 1w
  •   veryculinary Love the colors! 1w
  •   rainydaybites This is such a vibrant and beautiful dish. It perfect for a celebration meal. I need to try roasting the cauliflower next time. Gorgeous! 1w
  •   somethingnewfordinner That is gorgeous! 1w
  •   sfpchow Beautiful and now I've got another book to check out! 1w
  •   omgyummy @rainydaybites it is stunning isn't it but I must admit, I found the cake texture a bit odd and felt it was slightly under seasoned. Having said that, still a super fun idea and we enjoyed it w hot sauce. On the next go, I think I would make it more like a frittata and possibly line the whole bottom crust with those nigella seeds cuz I think that unexpected flavor is pretty brilliant. 1w

icookottolenghi Stuffed Eggplant with Lamb & Pine Nuts. 8/21/15. This is a Turkish style dish- slow cooked to perfection. The ground lamb is sautéed with onions, pine nuts, cumin, cinnamon and paprika and spread over pre-baked eggplants and slow cooked for 1.5 hours. The basting sauce is lemon juice, tamarind paste, more spices and cinnamon sticks. I had to divide up the eggplants into two baking dishes. It turned out beautiful! #stuffedeggplantwithlambandpinenuts #jerusalem #ottolenghi #samitamimi #yotamottolenghi #shabbatshalom excited to serve this tonight!! 1w

edibleventuracounty Yotam Ottolenghi and @sami_tamimi inspired this Middle Eastern dinner through their cookbooks Jerusalem and Ottolenghi, and @ottolenghi's books Plenty and Plenty More. It was so hard to narrow down the recipes for the menu--too many fabulous recipes to choose from. #tastingjrslm @ottolenghi 4w

omgyummy Another standout course @contigosf was this fig salad w toasted goat cheese, fennel, arugula, & hazelnuts #figs #spain #tapas #sanfrancisco 1mon
  •   desert_healthy @omgyummy Gorgeous and it looks delicious!🏼 1mon
  •   omgyummy #vfigfeed I have been debating whether to enter this salad from @contigosf or one of my own creations - a savory shortbread cocktail cookie created ESP for @valleyfig or a #tastingjrslm inspired salad dressed w pomegranate molasses vinaigrette. I am opting to enter this salad because it really celebrates figs in their current seasonal glory and highlights how they can enhance so many different cuisines. In this case, the salad was part of a 7 course tasting menu at the Spanish tapas restaurant in SF called Contigo. This salad hit all the notes - savory crispy richness w the toasted goat cheese, crunchy from the hazelnuts, so fresh and flavorful from the arugula, basil, fennel, and finally finished so lusciously w the fresh figs. It was all the more sweet as we were dining with our long time friends - an annual celebration dinner of our wedding anniversaries that always involves great food and wine. This dinner rated near the top of our experiences with the salad definitely one of the highlights of the evening. 4w

  •   ggellert Delicious! Thanks for sharing! 1mon
  •   food_life_fun @ggellert any time 1mon
  •   omgyummy I really like this photo and presentation of this dish. @edibleventuracounty and I have a real soft spot for this dish - it's full of flavor, it's healthy, it can be prepared ahead and it has been a huge hit at two different workshops that we've taught. Can also sub the bulgur w other grains to change it up. Did you love it? #tastingjrslm 1mon
  •   omgyummy P.S. Can I share this link on our FB page? 1mon
  •   food_life_fun @omgyummy thank you so much I am flattered, of coarse you can share it ... We loved it, although I sub bulgur with couscous and left out raisins, & added fresh mint 1mon
  •   omgyummy @food_life_fun Great subs - we love to hear what everyone's unique approaches to each dish are. 1mon
