Israeli Recipes


As a relatively young ountry with many recent immigrants, Israel is still developing its own style of cuisine. As you might expect, immigrants to the country have brought many traditional Jewish recipes from all over the world to the country, some of which have become popular outside their original ethnic group. Additionally, another strand of Israeli cuisine, known as "Israeli-Mizrahi cuisine", which is influenced by Arab cooking, has developed.

Some popular Israeli dishes include:
  • Matbucha -Tomatoes, roasted peppers, oil and garlic are cooked together, allowed to cool, and then eaten together as a salad.

  • Israeli salad - A simple salad made by finely chopping cucumber and tomato. Parsley and spring onions may optionally be added. It is usually dressed with olive oil and lemon juice.

  • Labneh - Yogurt strained to remove the whey.

  • Bourekas - Savoury pastries.

  • Sambusac - Small triangular or crescent-moon shaped fried pastries, containing various savory fillings, such as chickpeas, ground (minced) meat and onions, or cheese.

  • Malawach - A thin bread made of many layers, similar to a crêpe.

  • Sabich - A sandwich originally from Iraq. It is made by filling pita bread with peeled and fried eggplant (aubergine), hard-boiled egg, hummus, tahini, tomato, cucumber, onion, and optionally amba (mango pickle) and/or chilli sauce.

  • Mujadara - Rice with lentils and onions.

  • Falafel - Fried Balls made of fava beans or chickpeas.

  • Chopped liver - A spread made from sautéed liver and onions in rendered animal fat ("schmaltz) with hard-boiled eggs and seasoning.

  • Skhug, also known as "kharif" - Originally from Yemen, skhuge is a spicy dip made from fresh hot peppers, garlic, coriander and various spices. It can be made from red peppers ("skhug adom"), green peppers ("skhug yarok), or green peppers with tomatoes added ("skhug chum").

    Skhug

  • Jachnun - Rolled dough, slowly baked over night for approximately 10 hours. When cooked, it is eaten with tomato dip, hard boiled eggs and skhug.

  • Kibbeh - Ground (minced) meat, flour and spices, made into torpedo shapes, and then fried.

    Kibbeh

  • Shakshouka - Eggs, tomatoes, onions and garlic. Usually eaten with pita bread.

  • Shawarma - The Israeli version of doner kebab. It is served with pita bread and salad, as well as hummus or French fries.

  • Halvah - A dessert or sweet made from sesame tahini, sugar, vanilla and saponaria (a herb).
