Updated on May 13, 2012

Are you looking for a cookbook filled with recipes for fresh, kosher meals that are simple to prepare? If so, be sure to pick up a copy of Fresh & Easy Kosher Cooking: Ordinary Ingredients. Extraordinary Meals by Leah Schapira.

About the Book

This book is written with the needs of busy home cooks who don’t want to spend hours shopping for hard-to-find specialty ingredients or assembling dishes in the kitchen. If you have a hard time finding time to cook, but want to prepare healthful meals for your family at home, this book is a great resource - whether or not you maintain a kosher kitchen.

The book is organized by type of recipe, with chapters focusing on soups, salads, dips/sauces, side items, brunch/lunch features, main dishes, traditional recipes and desserts. Each recipe is accompanied by a large, attractive photo of the finished dish, as well as clear, easy-to-read ingredient lists and numbered, step-by-step preparation instructions that are not difficult to understand or follow.

Recipe Examples

There are so many wonderful recipes in this book that your biggest challenge just might be deciding how to narrow your choices down to which dishes to try first. Here is a selection of the tasty titles you’ll learn how to make when you utilize this cookbook:

  • BBQ Pepper Steak
  • Chunky Hummus
  • Healthy Peanut Butter Bars
  • Honey Mustard Chicken
  • Roasted Red Pepper Cream Pasta
  • Roasted Tomato Soup
  • Spinach Grilled Cheese (my personal favorite from the book - so far!)
  • Many other choices!

Prepare Flavorful Kosher Meals at Home

If you’re ready to tackle the task of learning how to create delicious kosher dishes at home with minimal fuss, you won’t be disappointed with this book. As the author herself says, “Food preparation shouldn’t be a point of tension. This cookbook is all about easy, uncomplicated recipes.”
