No Fuss Dinner Ideas


Kosher-In-The-Kitch

Mix up your weekly dinner menu with one (or all) of these delicious dishes! They are ready in under 30 minutes and there is no need to turn on the oven. These stovetop dinners are also perfect to serve during the Nine Days when no meat or chicken is permitted.

 

Chickpea Veggie Burger

Safer-080114-Chickpea

While beef burgers get all the spotlight in the summer months, it’s great to have a tasty veggie burger up your sleeve. These are fantastic with some tahini sauce drizzled on top. To make tahini sauce, simply combine tahini paste with lemon juice and some olive oil.

Servings: 6 patties

 

Ingredients:

1/2 cup of quinoa
1 cup veggie broth
1 small onion, diced
1 15 oz. can of chickpeas
1 tbsp chopped parsley
2 eggs
1/2 cup panko crumbs
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp Montréal steak seasoning
1/4 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

 

Directions:

Place quinoa and veggie broth in a pot, bring to a boil then simmer until liquid is absorbed.

Meanwhile, sauté onions until translucent. Remove from heat and combine with cooked quinoa.

Add in chickpeas and mash with a fork.

Season with spices then add in eggs, panko crumbs and parsley. Combine well. Shape into patties.

Heat up a frying pan with oil and cook until both sides are lightly browned.

Serve on bun with mayo, tomato slices, avocado and lettuce.  Would also taste great with bbq mayo or tahini sauce.

 

 

Cheesy Quesadillas 

Safer-080114-Quesadilla

This is a great family dish since everyone can select his or her favorite fillings. While I love veggie crumbles with cheese melted over it, my son is insists on filling his with as many olives as he can find.

 

Ingredients:

Olive oil
Flour tortillas
Grated Cheese

 

Optional Filings:

Veggie or soy crumbles
Sliced Mushrooms
Olives
Diced red pepper
Chopped tomatoes
Salsa
Corn
Tuna

 

Directions:

Heat up a frying pan with olive oil. Place one tortilla in the pan and allow it to heat; flip once or twice.

Place your fillings on the tortilla and cook until cheese has melted.

Use a spatula to flip the tortilla over in half, similar to an omelet.

Once both sides have browned, remove from heat and cut into wedges.

Serve with sour cream, guacamole and freshly chopped cilantro.

 

Another way of making a quesadilla is to place one tortilla in a heated frying pan, add fillings and cover with a second tortilla.

Cook until the cheese has melted and both tortillas have browned, then remove and cut into wedges.

You can flip the quesadilla onto a plate from the pan, and then slide it back in the pan on the other side to easily cook both tortillas.

 

 

Pasta with Roasted Red Pepper Sauce

Safer-080114-Red-Pepper

This super quick sauce is easy to whip up and makes for a wonderful summer dinner.

 

Ingredients:

3 whole roasted red peppers (from a jar)
8 oz. pasta (I used Trader Joes lemon pepper pappardelle)
1 onion, diced
2 cloves of garlic, diced
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp Montréal steak seasoning
1/2 cup of milk or heavy cream
Freshly chopped parsley and grated Parmesan for serving

 

Directions:

Cook pasta until al dente.

Meanwhile, sauté onion and garlic until tender.

Place roasted peppers in a blender and pulse until smooth.

Add onions and garlic to the blender and combine well.

Pour milk (or heavy cream) into the blender and mix together.

Purim is a fantastic time for fantasies, so I hope you won’t mind my fantasizing about how easy life would be if kids would prefer healthy cuisine over sweets. Imagine waking up to the call of “Mommy, when will my oatmeal be ready?”… As you rush to ladle out the hot unsweetened cereal, you rub […]

The mishloach manos of times gone by were sometimes simple and sometimes elaborate, but the main focus was on the preparation of the delicious food they contained.

One of the earliest special Purims we have on record was celebrated by the Jews of Granada and Shmuel HaNagid, the eleventh-century rav, poet, soldier and statesman, and one of the most influential Jews in Muslim Spain.
