Queen Esther Would Be Proud-Lentil Patties

Queen Esther Would Be Proud-Lentil Patties

With Purim starting tonight, I wanted to pay tribute to our beloved Queen Esther, the heroine of the Purim story and a great role model. It is said that she did not eat meat, only vegetables and legumes. These lentil patties are delicious and healthy and you can put them together quickly. They will be the stars of your Purim feast. Serve them with the roasted red pepper mayonnaise (listed below) and everyone will want your recipe. Don’t spend too much time in the kitchen, get dressed up in a costume and head to your synagogue to hear the reading of the Megillah! Happy Purim. The Recipe

Super Bowl Layered Dip, Jewish Style!

Here is a great “Noshable” (appetizer): I’ve taken two of my recipes (found on this website) and modified them to create this new and easy dish just in time for the Super Bowl! It has different layers and is best served with pita chips, tortilla chips, toasted pita bread or crackers.The layers can be made a day or two in advance and then assembled right before the game.  Just remember that if you have people who keep Kosher, don’t serve this with a meat meal or if having a meat meal, substitute a non-dairy sour cream for the regular sour cream. Go teams!!

This is a great and quick supper dish and a great way to get the kids to eat their vegetables! I think I’ll make it every Sunday night!! Read on for the Recipe
