Prepared a quick lunch of mixed greens, tomatoes, avocado, scrambled eggs with smoked salmon, alfalfa sprouts, and topped it with some @soomfoods tehina.

When it's to hot to cook anything we make poke bowl. Poke bowl is a Hawaiian dish made with raw fish (usually salmon or tuna) you can add whatever fruit, veg and topping you like and serve it with a sauce of your choice.

Here I used this time sushi rice*, purple cabbage, alfalfa sprouts, radish, mango, scallions, carrots, avocado, tuna, and a sesame dressing.
For the sauce I mixed 1 Tbs soy sauce, 1 Tbs sesame oil, 1 tsp olive, half lemon squeezed, squeeze of honey, toasted sesame seeds. *You can buy ready cooked sushi rice at most sushi spots.

I always find on the long hot summer days (especially shabbos afternoon) the kids are constantly looking for something to snack on... I like to keep a stock of homemade ices in my freezer so I know what my kids are eating and they love to help me come up with fun combinations #winwin. This week we have watermelon lime & mint ice pops and mango, strawberry, & blueberry ice pops.

I don't really have exact recipes for these.
For the watermelon pop I blended watermelon with lime juice and fresh mint.
Mango, strawberry, blueberry pop I blended each fruit with a little water (you can use coconut water) and froze each layer separately.
*You can add sweetener of choice if you like it a little sweeter.

Finally sitting down after a long fun day.
I got to spend some time with friends and good food!😃 I taught them how to bake sourdough bread and when we were done we had a delicious lunch prepared by all of us.
I made spelt honey oat, chocolate cherry, toasted sesame, rye jalapeño, and a basic country loaf bread. To go with it I also made homemade butter L-R cinnamon, cardamom, lavender and silan. Citrus zest and whipped honey. Garlic and chives. @hudiriven you made a killer gravlax and kimchi, @kitchentested that summer rolls were perfection 👌🏻 and the lime cookies were a perfect end to the meal. @peaslovencarrots you sure know how to prepare a GOOD tuna salad. @naomi_tgis @thekitch_ny that cheese board was beautiful! Oh and let's not forget the flowers what a beautiful touch. @freshfromtheheart I always dream about your cookies.
Thank you everyone who made it happen! @peaslovencarrots @hudiriven @freshfromtheheart @theblueladle @naomi_tgis @thekitch_ny @boshsmeat @kitchentested

Lightened up tacos for dinner tonight because that's what summer is all about-keeping cool and staying out of the kitchen.😝
I stuffed romaine lettuce with ground beef and topped it with pico de gallo, avocado and radish. Watch my stories to see how I made the meat.

How are you celebrating summer? I love spending the long hot days with family, friends and lots of good dessert.
I love how the flavors of the sweet plums, the tart from sour cherries, citrus from the lime zest and warmth from cardamom all came together with this beautiful and delicious sourdough pie dough.
For the dough I used the recipe from @kitchentested blog (basic pie dough), instead of shortening or butter I used coconut oil, added a little of my sourdough starter and spelt flour.

The filling is plums, sour cherries, lime zest, cardamom, and a little sugar tossed in a little corn starch.

A smoothie bowl with all the "fix ins" for my afternoons snack because I was feeling a little sluggish and hot!

For the smoothie:
Mango, cherries, banana, chia seeds, flax seeds, almond milk. I didn't add a lot of liquid because I wanted a thicker consistency.
Toppings:
Blueberries, goji berries, cacao nibs, roasted coconut chips, pumpkin seeds.

"Stuffed" eggplant ftw!
When I make fried shnitzel for the kids but my son wants from my dinner instead I know it's a winner!
This dish was inspired by @busyinbrooklyn About 3 yrs ago, I still make it all the time because it's a favorite around here! (check out my insta story for my old picture)
I roasted an eggplant with a little salt and oil until it was soft. When it was done I added Israeli salad, @gefen_foods ready cooked beets, Israeli pickles, "grilled" chicken, and topped it with some preserved lemon tehina.
