North African Veggies & Couscous
Chef Einat Admony of Balaboosta and Taïm in New York City brings a taste of her Israeli kitchen to your table. This tender medley of parsnips, sweet potatoes, and cauliflower florets is bursting with layers of flavor — starting with cilantro, turmeric, and paprika, and balanced out with a citrusy blend of Persian lime, preserved lemon, and orange. Vibrant sauteed swiss chard and fluffy couscous add next-level nourishment, topped off with Einat’s own homemade chirchi (a creamy blend of carrots, butternut squash, and spices) and crunchy ja’ala for the perfect finishing touch.
About Chef Einat Admony
Einat is a highly decorated, James Beard-nominated chef and owner of two NYC restaurants: Balaboosta, and Taïm, each with their own distinct menus inspired by her Persian and Yemenite roots.
Although she is affectionately known as the ‘ultimate balaboosta’ (Yiddish for ‘perfect homemaker’), Einat is a tour de force who’s redefined the word on her own terms: In a career spanning over 20 years, she has built a culinary empire that extends far beyond her kitchen, with two celebrated cookbooks and a title as two-time champion on Food Network’s hit show, Chopped, among many others.
This bowl, like many of Einat’s recipes, draws inspiration from the comforting home-cooked meals of her childhood in Tel Aviv. For her, food is an expression of love, and a way to bring creativity and innovation to long-honored traditions. It’s just one of the many reasons we’re proud to partner with Chef Einat in our second guest chef collaboration. We hope you enjoy it!
