Nibbles, Noshes & Nachas

Latkes and Lights


Nachas-A Yiddish word meaning that you are happy and proud, especially of the accomplishments of your children



Bagels, lox & cream cheese for breakfast? Maybe, but you can try the typical Israeli breakfast of Shakshuka








2-3 Tbsp olive oil


3 garlic cloves, minced


1 Tbsp tomato paste


1 Tbsp paprika


1 tsp cumin


pinch caraway seeds


1 28 oz can diced tomatoes


1 tsp salt


1/2 tsp pepper


3-4 large eggs


fresh parsley


feta (optional)


pita bread or other fresh crusty bread for serving




Add oil to a large saute pan (pan should be a little on the deeper side) over medium heat. Add garlic and cook 1 minute. Add tomato paste and spices and continue to cook for 3-4 minutes until fragrant.


Add can of diced tomatoes and simmer over medium heat for 15-20 minutes.


When sauce has thickened slightly, crack eggs into small glass bowls and then gently add to tomato sauce. Cover and cook 3-5 minutes, until whites have set and yolk is to your liking (I like it on the runnier side, so I cook it slightly less time).


When eggs are done, sprinkle with fresh parsley (or cilantro or mint) and scatter feta over the top if desired. Serve with fresh pita or other crusty bread.


It's always fun to learn and see what we know.
