Click here to pre-order your copy of The Silver Platter.

pareve | passover | gluten-free | freezes well | yields 10-12 mounds

4-5 medium potatoes, (Idaho or Yukon Gold), peeled and cut into chunks

4-5 cloves garlic

1/2 cup (approximately) vegetable broth

1 Tbsp olive oil

1 tsp kosher salt

1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper

2 scallions, thinly sliced

  1. In a large saucepan, combine potatoes and garlic. Add enough lightly salted water to cover by 1 inch. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, for 20 minutes, or until potatoes are tender. Remove from heat; drain well.
  2. Return potatoes and garlic to saucepan and place back on the heat for 1-2 minutes to evaporate any excess moisture. Remove from heat.
  3. Mash potatoes and garlic until smooth. Gradually blend in broth, oil, salt, and pepper. Whip until light and creamy. Stir in scallions.
  4. Line a rimmed baking with parchment paper.
  5. Using an ice-cream scoop, scoop rounded mounds of potato mixture onto prepared baking sheet. (Can be made in advance up to this point.)
  6. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  7. Bake, uncovered, for 25-30 minutes, until crusty.

Norene’s Notes

  • Dry, mealy potatoes have high starch content and are perfect for baked or mashed potatoes. Waxy potatoes have lower starch content and are best for boiling, scalloped potatoes, or potato salad.
  • If you don’t know which type of potato you have, put it in a brine of 2 Tbsp salt dissolved in 1½ cups cold water. Mealy potatoes will sink; waxy ones will float.
  • If your potatoes are tinged with green, cut off and discard any green parts. The green layer under the skin is called solanin and is poisonous.

Savory Hamantaschen

Recipe from Fresh and Easy Kosher Cooking by Leah Schapira. Copyright ArtScroll/Mesorah Publications. 

Click here to download a printable version of Savory Hamentashen on The Official ArtScroll Blog

Ingredients:

4 (10-inch circles) frozen malawah dough

2 tbsp honey

3 cloves garlic

1 full tbsp salt

2 tbsp soy sauce

2 tbsp apple juice

3 chicken cutlets, cubed

¼ cup red bell pepper, finely diced

oil, for frying

Apricot Dipping Sauce

1 cup apricot jam

2 tbsp mustard

2 tbsp soy sauce

1 tbsp honey

Instructions: 

  1. In a medium bowl, combine honey, garlic, salt, soy sauce, and apple juice. Marinate chicken in mixture for a minimum of 30 minutes. Add the diced red pepper.
  2. Remove malawah dough from freezer to begin defrosting.
  3. When dough has slightly defrosted (approximately 10 minute after removing from freezer), use a cookie cutter to cut out 2º-inch circles. Defrost circles for an additional 5 minutes. Using a rolling pin or pressing down with your hands, roll the dough circles slightly until they are 3Ω inches wide.
  4. Place a heaping teaspoonful of chicken mixture into the center of each circle. Pinch the edges together to form a hamentash.
  5. Heat a thin layer of oil in a skillet or frying pan. Add hamentashen to pan, filled side down. Fry over medium-low heat for 10-12 minutes, flipping halfway through or until golden (the heat needs to be low enough so the chicken is cooked before the dough browns).
  6. To prepare dipping sauce, add all ingredients to a bowl and stir to combine thoroughly.
  7. Serve hamentashen warm with dipping sauce.
