VEGETARIAN PASSOVER RECIPES
“This is an easy and filling supper dish, good with cooked greens or a tossed salad and some sprouted grain bread. Almost any vegetables can go into the mix; just make sure they’re all cut up before you begin, and add the longest cooking ones first.”
Ingredients
  • 1 Teaspoon Olive Oil
  • 1/2 Cup Chopped Onion
  • 1 Clove Garlic, Minced
  • 1/2 Cup Diced Green Bell Pepper
  • 1 Zucchini, Halved Lengthwise And Cut In 1/4 Inch Slices
  • 2 Cups Cooked And Diced Potatoes
  • 1 Cup Chopped Fresh Tomato
  • 2 Tablespoons Black Olives
  • 4 Eggs
  • Salt And Pepper To Taste
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Dried Oregano
  • 1 Pinch Cayenne Pepper
  • 1/2 Small Tomato, Sliced
  • 1/4 Cup Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
  • 1/4 Cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
Directions
  1. Preheat the broiler on your oven.
  2. In a frying pan with an ovenproof handle heat the oil and saute onion, garlic and green bell pepper over a low heat. Saute until vegetables are just tender but not browned. Add the zucchini and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until crisp-tender. Add the potatoes, stir well to combine, and continue cooking, stirring frequently, until the potatoes are heated through and starting to stick to the pan.
  3. Then add the tomatoes and black olives, stirring well to combine with the other ingredients, and cook just until the tomatoes have begun giving up their juice.
  4. Beat the eggs with the salt, pepper, oregano, and cayenne. When all the vegetables are cooked, pour the eggs over them
  5. Arrange the tomato slices over the top of the eggs, and sprinkle the mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses over the tomato slices. Cook gently over low heat until the eggs are almost set (they’ll be firm around the edges and a bit runny in the middle).
  6. Slip the pan under the broiler for a minute or two, until the eggs are fully set and the cheese has melted and begun to brown. Cut into wedges and serve.

Directions
  1. Spoon yogurt into a medium bowl. Grate in garlic and mix to combine. Season with salt, pepper, and cayenne. Add dill and mix thoroughly. Set aside at room temperature.
  2. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat; heat until bubbles begin to burst. Add cumin, paprika, and chili flakes. Stir until color is uniform, then turn off heat and let spices infuse.
  3. Grind parsley and jalapeno together in a mortar. Season with salt, drizzle in olive oil, and stir to combine.
  4. Fill a large saucepan with 2 to 3 inches of water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, pour in vinegar, and keep the water at a gentle simmer.

Remove the eggs from the water with a slotted spoon, dab on a kitchen towel to remove excess water, and place onto a warm plate.
  5. Dollop yogurt mixture onto serving plates. Use the back of a spoon to spread yogurt out into a bed for the eggs, carving ridges into the top to catch the oil. Drizzle on some jalapeno oil. Top with eggs and a spoonful or two of the Aleppo butter. Sprinkle sea salt on top.
