I changed a few things and I wish I can change more but I don't know how to explain that to my kids.
I buy ground fish and meat now. Disaster happened when I tried to grind it myself in my food processor.
We don't grind coffee beans but maybe we should try it. Giving up coffee is hard for us.
Buy a coffee grinder.
And for meat you need a meat grinder.
It’s much easier when you have the right tools.

One recipe almost everyone can make is colorful fries- you fry potatoes, carrots, and beets separately and serve mixed together. You can also add other vegetables.


This is an interesting idea. Fried in shmaltz, not so tempting but still another idea to add to the reptitoire

It's delicious baked. Just toss with a bit of shmaltz.
Cut all into fries. Toss parsnip (or potato) and sweet potato with a tablespoon of fat and roast in one even layer on a cookie sheet - 400 for 40 minutes. Toss the beet fry shapes with half a tablespoon fat on a separate cookie sheet and bake on the other shelf in the oven - for about 6 more minutes (46 minutes total).
Toss all 3 colors together with salt and serve.

This is also really heaven. And absolutely stunning. I brought it with me when I was a guest at family that uses minimal ingredients (since I'm family they surprisingly allow me to bring food that they know I was careful with for them. Smile ) I only flavored it with grated onion and/or shallots and salt.

Rainbow Pommes Anna

2 russet potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
2 sweet potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
2 red beets, peeled and thinly sliced
oil, shmaltz, or duck fat
kosher salt, to taste
black pepper, to taste (optional)

Method:

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Brush a 9″ round baking dish generously with oil and arrange potatoes and beets in layers, overlapping them slightly. When you complete each layer, brush it with oil and season with salt and pepper. Cover the vegetables with a sheet of greased parchment paper and place a heavy dish or skillet on top of it. Bake for approximately 30 minutes until vegetables are fork-tender. Uncover the vegetables and bake for an additional 15-20 minutes until the edges are browned and crispy.

To serve, you may cut slices directly from the baking dish, or, run a knife around the potato cake to release around the edges and flip over onto a platter.


Butternut squash or kohlrabi latkes are delicious. 4 cups finely grated vegetables, 1 small grated onion, 3 lightly beaten eggs and 3/4 tsp salt (or more to taste). Fry in fat.

Not having read everything...

DH would like to use almost nothing. Oil, potato starch, sugar & cocoa. DS says he'd like to trade potato starch for chocolate bars. (And I keep telling him honey is less processed than sugar, but he still doesn't want to eat it. After years of suffering as I have my own digestive restrictions, I decided I am eating things he doesn't eat. It's not like it's even his minhag! He just adopted it.)

So here's what I did.

Bought greenhouse parsley & dill. A lot. Ground in food processor & froze in a container.

Cut up small pieces of red pepper (BH we eat things without peeling, though I guess you could?) Put in slow oven for several hours until crisp. Ground in food processor. Paprika!

Grind whole peppers in a pepper grinder.

Maybe tomorrow I will post my striped salmon with a different spice on each stripe!

(DS actually bought raw coffee beans & figured how to roast them on a punctured cookie sheet, then ground them!)

That's basic. Most people eat at their in-laws without hataras nadarim. I believe he would get a different psak if he asked about changing the minhagim in his own house.

I do the same in a few huge pots, but at least we then have applesauce. Lots of it.

I would not want to shrink those apples even more by making fruit leather that gets eaten way faster and sooner than applesauce, which is already about a 1/5 of its original size.

Yeah but do you really need to make applesauce in order to make fruit leather? I saw this done with mango where they just put the mango into the food processor and then rolled it out thinly on the baking sheet and baked it and it became fruit leather. Why cant the same be thing be done with apples? Just put it raw in the food processor then spread it on the baking sheet and bake and you will get fruit leather without the added step of cooking the apples first. You can probably do the same thing with pears if you eat them.

This is the instructions for mango fruit leather-- https://www.justataste.com/hea.....cipe/

ETA: This is the instructions for apples and pears without needing to cook them so it works as well (obviously dont include sugar if you dont eat it but maybe it works with sugar water) https://www.allrecipes.com/rec.....ther/

Seriously I just try to stick to basics. Whatever takes fastest to prepare, cooks quickly, and is the most filling. Anything else is a waste of my time. If it takes 3 hours to prepare and 3 min to eat, it's not on my menu.
I make sure to get the large onions, potatoes, carrots, etc. What's the point of peeling a dozen teeny tiny potatoes when I can peel two big ones and have the same amount of potato. It's a waste of time to deal with small produce.

These are pretty good

Plantain Wraps

3 unripe plantains
1/3 cup water
1/3 cup oil
1 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 180/350.
Blend all together and spread on a lined baking sheet to form a large circle.

Bake for 15-20 min, until edges just start to brown.

Use like tortilla wraps...eggs, meat, avocado, chicken, pulled beef.

You can probably make pizza with them but haven't tried.

This Pesach I realised for the first time that you could easily peel red hot chili pepper with a peeler, it is as quick as peeling a (small) carrot and there you go, whatever you want tastes hot and spicy!
