Tips for the Nine Days

On this week's show, we are discussing the halacha (Jewish law) pertaining to the Nine Days. During the Nine Days, we do not eat meat (even poultry) or drink wine (even grape juice).

So what's for dinner? If you're tired of making lasagna when it's time to prepare a dairy meal, consider the following yummy (and Nine-Days-observant) options:

  • Lentils and Rice
  • Breaded Sole Fillets with Chard
  • Vegetable Quiche
  • Cheese Blintzes
  • Onion Pie
  • Nachos with Refried Beans (over brown rice)

Here's a recipe for a very easy, very inexpensive, and very tasty Israeli entree:


1 - 16oz can of tomato paste with 1 cup water (or 1 24 oz can tomato sauce)

1- cup freshly chopped parsley

1- small onion, chopped

2 - Tbs olive oil

1- tsp salt

1 Tbsp sugar

6- 8 eggs

Mix all the ingredients except for eggs in a bowl, pour into large frying pan. Heat on high until steaming. Crack eggs (check for blood spots) and pour them one by one into the tomato mixture. Reduce to medium heat, cook until the eggs are solid. Serve hot

Enjoy this meal with salad on a baguette, with crackers, or even over rice!
