  • This is a terrific idea for fooling your family into believing that you are cooking as usual and cleaning for Passover.

    I know that Passover is almost three weeks away. Part of my new way to prepare for Passover is to clean the oven and stovetop and cover it until Passover; then use all the other electric small chometz cooking appliances: By the way, these appliances can be removed to a porch  via an extension cord or to a basement. It’s like having your kitchen gutted.

    My Inventory:

    1-Toaster Oven, Small and large meat, dairy

    2-Charles Forman Grills ( I have one for Pareve cooking and Meat)

    3-Dairy Microwave oven.

    4-Shabat Platta: On Shabas one puts a metal pan or grate between the platta and the pot to heat. That proves that the heating elements are hot/strong enough to cook, so I firmly believe that we must use something between the pot and the platta. But I am looking for the reverse – to actually cook!

    5-Tami Bar for hot water to start the pot on the platta going. What are some of your tricks?

     

    That’s a lot of small appliances. Today is our first day of camp! I prepared hard boiled eggs on the Platta.

    The additional trick: Every cooking surface in the above appliances is covered with aluminum foil so there are no pots to clean. Pasta will  cook on the platta like rice. Also, it’s a good idea to have on hand many jars of broth so that vegetables can be made into a soup via an immersion blender or food processor. Will prepare grains, pasta either in the microwave or the platta. Say good-bye to stovetop and oven cooking and clean up for 2and 1/2 weeks.

    First wave: Rice on the Platta and Veggie Burgers on the Foreman Grill or in the dairy toaster oven (tofu, carrots celery, onions prepared in Foreman Grill)

DIRECTIONS

  1. In a medium skillet (George Forman grill tilted to make it into a skillet), mix the onion, carrot, celery and zucchini with the 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil. Sauté over medium heat until onion is clear. Remove from heat and add the brown rice, oats and seasonings. Mix well and add the tofu, With a fork, mash the tofu into fine pieces and mix well. You may use a food processor for this step.

  2. In a small bowl, combine all the liquid ingredients and stir to mix. Pour over the rice mixture and stir until moistened and evenly mixed. Shape into 8 evenly-sized patties approximately 3 1/2 to 4 inches in diameter. Dredge each patty with bread crumbs, making sure to coat both sides.

  3. Place the patties on a baking sheet that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray, then spray the tops of each patty.

  4. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 15 minutes. Turn the patties over, spray the tops with the cooking spray and bake another 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and let them sit for 5 minutes. Or use Forman Grill with foil.

  5. Serve with buns or by themselves with mashed potatoes (on the platta) and gravy. Enjoy!
