“And it came to pass, as the camels had done drinking, that the man took a golden ring of half a shekel weight, and two bracelets for her hands of ten shekels weight of gold” – Genesis 24:22

Vegetable Bracelets and Rings with Coriander Pesto

2 onions, sliced into rounds
3 zucchini sliced into 1/4 inch rounds (remove centers with a small cookie cutter, or cut out with a knife)
2 red peppers, sliced into 1/4 inch rounds
2 yellow peppers, sliced into 1/4 inch rounds
4 Tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper, to taste

Coriander Pesto:
1/2 cup fresh coriander leaves
2 Tbsp sunflower seeds
4 cloves garlic, chopped
1/4 cup olive oil
Salt, Pepper, and Red Pepper flakes, to taste
pinch sugar (optional, but I think it adds complexity)
1 tsp lemon juice (or more, to taste)

Slice all of the vegetables into rounds – make sure that all the slices are perfect circles of various sizes. Place on a baking sheet lined with non-stick foil or parchment paper. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast in the oven for 15-20 minutes until soft and slightly beginning to turn brown around the edges.

Place all pesto ingredients into a tall container and blend with an immersion blender (or place in a food processor and process until smooth). The mixture might need to be thinned a bit – either with more olive oil, more lemon juice (to taste), or with water.

Drizzle roasted vegetables with Coriander Pesto, serve.

I’m in a bit of a backlog with my posts, as my Hebrew cookbook came out and I’ve been blessed by a flurry of media attention here (TV, print, radio, online and more…) I’m going to take a break from my Prophecy in the Kitchen posts (even thought I have two recipes from the Book of Amos ready to go: Miniature Summer Fruit Basket Pies and Mashed Potato Mountains with Zaatar, Silan and Red Wine Sauce).

Today I had a journalist come cook with me. She asked me to prepare recipes related to the Weekly Portion of “Chayei Sarah – The Life of Sarah” which spans from Chapter 23 verse 1 of Genesis, to Chapter 25, verse 18. The recipes and photos were too beautiful not to share! And perhaps I will find a way to connect them to some of the books of the prophets as I go, but for now, I wanted to post some of them here.

We made:

Spiced Acorn Squash and Apple Soup in Squash “Wells”

Chicken Thighs in Silan, Beer and Mustard

Bejeweled Beluga Lentils with Lemon-Mint Dressing

Vegetable Bracelets and Rings with Coriander Pesto

Tunnel of Fudge Cave Cake
