Fig Noor Bread Cake Recipe Recipe

Fig Noor Bread Cake Recipe

08.30.13 by Jackie

This fruity bread dessert is so delicious you won't believe it only requires 5 ingredients. No egg, no baking time and no more than 30 minutes prep time.

I cut black sesame and caraway Noor bread into small pieces and soaked them in hot fig preserves. Once the preserves were chilled, the cake jelled into one entity. I served the fig Noor bread cake with tangy crème fraîche for richness and pineapple and raspberries for a touch of acidity to balance the sweetness of the preserves. 

Last weekend, my good friend Laura, who's a jam expert, came over and picked 15 pounds of Black Mission figs in our garden. Aria and I helped gather as much fruit as possible so she could prepare her yummy fruit preserves. While selecting the ripe fruits, we chatted and Laura told me she would try a new technique.

The idea was to find a method that doesn't require pectin. To make the preserves, Laura started by combining water and lemon juice. After bringing the liquid to a boil, she stirred in sugar and brought the temperature to 250°F. Finally, she added the figs and vanilla beans and cooked the mixture at 220 degrees until jelled. 

I also have an announcement for this weekend. I'm going to be making a stop in Houston, Texas for an interview with Cleverley Stone on CBS Radio 650 AM at 10am Saturday. Tune in if you can, because a lucky listener will win a free copy of my cookbooks. Then I head to Barnes & Noble to sign my just released cookbook,Banh Mi, and my previous book, Haute Potato. Make sure you stay to sample a dish featured in Banh Mi! Hope you stop by and say hi!

If you want to have a healthy late night snack, these savory pizza lavash crackers are for sure going to satisfy your appetite. Leftover lavash bread, thick tomato sauce, marjoram, thyme, oregano, crushed red peppers and Parmesan cheese are all you need to make the perfect crowd pleaser.

The spiciness from the crushed red peppers makes them so addictive. You can also prepare a sweet version with apples and cinnamon, if you prefer; these crackers are as delicious as their savory equivalent.

Crispy Fried Lavash Tacos Recipe

Crispy Fried Lavash Tacos

08.28.13 by Jackie

Crispy fried tacos are traditionally made with deep-fried tortillas, but since I received a humongous package from our friends at California Lavash, I prepared the tacos with lavash flatbread and they turned out beautifully. I also used the same oil for the tacos for deep fried catfish sticks. I filled the tacos with brown rice, roasted red pepper and eggplant spread, fried fish, red oak leaves, Mexican crema and curly parsley. 

These do take a little of time to prepare but the result is well worth the labor. As appetizers, they're especially great if you're preparing them for a small crowd. I'm sure your guests will love these mix-and-mingle party bites.

Apple Cinnamon Cracker Recipe Recipe

Apple Cinnamon Cracker Recipe

12.10.12 by Jackie

Spices such as cinnamon, clove, nutmeg and star anise can take even the most pedestrian of treats and give them a holiday flair. If you're wondering what would please your family while waiting for the main dish to be served at your holiday dinner, my friends at California Lavash and I came up with the perfect crowd pleaser. Thinly cut slices of apples kissed with cinnamon-infused butter layered over crispy lavash crackers make for a healthy and addictive snack. That’s important, considering the number of guilt-inducing desserts I’ve gobbled down over the past couple of weeks.

Seriously, you won’t be able to eat just one. The California Lavash gals and I made over a dozen tasty dishes over the course of two days, but this is by far the most memorable. And you don’t have to shelve the recipe once the holidays are over. If you pack lunch for your kids, put a handful of these in their bag instead of cookies. It will help with New Year’s resolutions!

Radish and Goat Cheese Napoleon Recipe Recipe

This radish and goat cheese napoleon recipe was inspired by an elegant beet appetizer I had several years ago at Spago, Wolfgang Puck's restaurant. Colorful layers of sliced, pickled Cherry Belle radishes, candied walnuts, goat cheese spread and rounds of whole grain noor thin bread give the dish its visual appeal. The pungency from the radishes offsets the velvety smoothness from the goat cheese. Sprinkled with candied walnuts, arugula and a few sprouted radish shoots as garnish, a larger portion of this light salad could be served as a one-dish meal. I finished the salad with a flavor-matching vinaigrette, a scrumptious sesame and candied walnut salad dressing.

The bread used in this dish is a new product from my friends over at California Lavash. It’s made with whole grains and is studded with black and white sesame seeds. It’s a great choice if you want to make a healthy dish, but I obviously didn’t do that today! I’ll be posting a couple more recipes using the bread later this week, and if you’d like to try them out, you can enter this week’s giveaway. Good luck!
