Bourekas are savory filled pastries that Israelis often make with puff pastry. To lighten the recipe, this version calls for phyllo dough brushed with olive oil.
An Israeli breakfast staple, this salad is also often served with lunch and dinner. The salad is made with tomatoes, cucumbers, onion, and plenty of parsley. Some top it with feta and olives, or dress it with tahini sauce.
What began as a typical Saturday breakfast among Jews from Iraq is now considered by many to be Israel’s most popular sandwich after falafel. To keep it light and easy, this recipe focuses on broiled sliced eggplant, but feel free to add sliced, boiled potatoes; sliced hard-boiled eggs; and/or sliced baked tofu for a heftier sandwich.
This poached egg dish is an Israeli favorite in restaurants and home kitchens. You can prepare the sauce in advance, and then reheat just before cooking the eggs.
