Planning what to cook this week/end? Remember the pulse! And think outside the pot. Lentils, for example, can be crispy and crunchy, or serve as a bed for a meat-centered meal or even be featured in your dessert -- as seen in these unique dishes I enjoyed at Stephanie Izard 's Little Goat in Chicago during a Canadian Lentils event last November.

Tahini, grilled eggplant, and lentils - from the Zahav cookbook with a slight spin by The Food Lab and Serious Eats. Check out the treatment of garlic with acid to enhance the garlicky flavor without bitterness.

http://www.seriouseats.com/2016/03/great-tahini-star-of-dish-michael-solomonov-lentil-eggplant-vegan-experience.html
This dish of eggplant roasted until caramelized and tender, served over stewed lentils with an extraordinarily light and creamy tahini sauce and crunchy pine nuts, was dinner and lunch for more meals than I care to count a couple of weeks back. Not that I'm complaining: It's extremely good.

March is for loving lentils at Tasting Jerusalem! In this photo we have red lentils (front), beluga or caviar lentils (right) and fancy green lentils (back). Lentils are a great source of plant-based protein and widely used in Middle Eastern cooking. What's your favorite lentil dish?

Another Hawayej themed meal.  As soon as we saw the post about the Hamshuka with Tahigurt and Machneyuda Toppings we had to have a go at making it, so here it is.  We made a few changes to the Martha Stewart recipe, so will cover them in the next blog entry.

Further explored lentils today by diving into the Moroccan-Inspired Lentil Salad with Carrots, Dates, and Mint from "The New Mediterranean Jewish Table" by Joyce Goldstein. What a great and easy recipe! It has an earthiness from the lentils and sweet/tart contrast with the dates and lemon vinaigrette. #lovelentils #tastingjrslm #lovepulses

Chocolate babka or krantz cake, is a brioche-like chocolate-studded bread that is making a mainstream comeback - in kitchens and bakeries everywhere!

It's March 1, but we're not quite ready to stop talking about babka! 

When you roll your babka - roll it tight - think sushi roll. Can u guess which one I rolled properly!??
