Instructions
  1. Combine chickpeas and onion in a large pot, and then add enough water to cover them, plus an additional 2 inches.
  2. Bring to a boil, cover and cook chickpeas on low heat until most of the water has evaporated and the chickpeas are soft enough to fall apart at the slightest touch, about 2 – ¬2.5 hours
  3. Remove chickpeas using a slotted spoon, reserving about 1/2 cup for later. Reserve all liquid
  4. In a food processor, combine chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, garlic cloves, parsley, cumin, salt and pepper. Taste and correct seasonings as needed. Hummus should be as smooth as possible – if consistency is too thick for you, thin out with the reserved chickpea liquid.
  5. Serve hummus warm, drizzled with olive oil and topped with whole reserved chickpeas, za’atar and sumac. Hummus can be eaten with pita, crudités, or pieces of raw onion.

Instructions
  1. Finely chop 1 large onion
  2. Dice eggplant and tomatoes into ½-inch cubes.
  3. Place eggplant in a colander, and salt it to draw liquids out.
  4. Mince garlic, and finely chop ½ of a fresh jalapeno, if using.
  5. Add 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil, and onion, to a large pan on medium heat
  6. Sauté onion for 5 minutes, then lower heat to medium-low and cook for another 5
  7. When onions have turned golden, add 2 tablespoons of oil and the eggplant cubes – but be careful not to crowd them! Let eggplant brown for a few minutes. When all the oil has been absorbed, add another tablespoon and toss the eggplant to coat.
  8. Continue browning eggplant for 10 minutes, turning pieces occasionally to ensure even cooking.
  9. Add tomatoes to pan on medium heat. Stirring occasionally, until the tomatoes break down into a chunky sauce (15- 25 minutes).
  10. Add chopped garlic cloves and spices.
  11. Crack eggs into a bowl.
  12. With a wooden spoon, create holes in the sauce for the eggs. Pour eggs into holes, one egg per nest.
  13. On medium heat, cover pan and let eggs cook 8-10 minutes, testing their consistency after 8 (you want the egg whites to set, while the yolk should still be a little jiggly).
  14. Squeeze the juice of 1/2 a lemon over the shakshuka.
  15. Sprinkle with chopped parsley, and serve immediately with a little bit of yogurt and crusty bread. Don’t forget to sop up the sauce when you’re done.

Tomato-Basil roasted eggplant salad

Units:
Instructions
  1. Turn on the oven or grill to a high heat. Lay the eggplant whole on an aluminum covered baking sheet or directly on the grill, and let it go for as long as it takes until the eggplant is completely blackened, turning it occasionally to ensure an even blistering. (approximately 30-40 minutes.)
  2. If making the tomato-basil roasted eggplant salad, add the bell peppers to the oven for about 15 minutes after the eggplant, and let them roast alongside it.
  3. Then, using plastic thongs or your hands (never metal), put the eggplant (and peppers) in a plastic bag and let rest until cool enough to handle. Once cooled, peel the eggplant (and peppers) with your hands, and remove the flesh.
  4. Using your hands, tear eggplant flesh into strands and chop peppers. Drizzle wiith a bit of lemon and set aside, covered in plastic wrap.
  5. Chop the rest of the ingredients and add to the eggplant, and season as needed. The salads can be served immediately, though they get even better if you let them sit.
