Recipe Ideas

I had a thought the other day.

I know, I was a bit shocked too :-0

For fasting recipes, it is worth having a look on Jewish cookery websites and in Jewish cookbooks ! Due to the intricacies of keeping kosher, there has to be a significant time delay (I believe it may be as long as six hours, but I need to check) between eating meat and then eating dairy products.

Jewish cooks have become adept at producing what is called "pareve" recipes, which are themselves non-meat and non-dairy, which can therefore be served with either a meat meal, or a dairy produce meal.

They may not be entirely Eastern Orthodox Fast-friendly, but it is worth having a peep and tweaking ingredients when necessary.

Try Diamond Carrot salad from the Jewish Princess Cookbook:

soak 110g of sultanas overnight in 225ml orange juice.

Grate 1 kg of carrots, or use 3 packets ready-grated carrots.
Add the sultanas and soaking juice,
2 tablespoons lemon juice,
2 tablespoons caster sugar ( fine sugar)
and one large, sliced orange.
Mix well.

Quick, Healthy and fast-friendly :-)
