We love reviewing cookbooks, and found The Simply Kosher Cookbook to be a necessity that belongs in everyone’s kitchen! Read further for a great glimpse at this cookbook, and a delicious recipe Nina shared with us especially for the Kosher Guru family!

Nina’s cookbook, The Simply Kosher Cookbook is filled with all of her favorite kosher recipes for easy weeknight meals and holiday entertaining. Each dish is deliciously simple with minimal ingredients and prep and maximum flavor.  Whether you want to impress your future mother in law with a good potato kugel, cook an easy rush-hour dinner that your children will eat, or score points hosting a dinner party for friends, there is a recipe in it just waiting to be cooked, eaten and enjoyed with loved ones.

“There is nothing like a good home-cooked meal to bring people together, but you don’t have to be a chef to make it happen. Here’s the thing—I don’t actually like big, fancy cooking. Spending a long time in the kitchen waiting for a dish to finally be ready to eat is not something I find enjoyable. But preparing a quick and tasty meal and then savoring that meal with loved ones? Now that’s something I love”.
– Nina Safar

Cajun Sausage Rice Bowl (Recipe down below)


There is nothing I enjoy more than ending the day with a deliciously easy and hearty meal. Carbs were created to make you feel all warm and cozy inside, and rice is at the top of the comfort food list for me. Cooked together with vibrant spices and savory slices of sausage and pepper, this one-pot dish is full of flavor in every creamy, comforting bite.

1 tablespoon olive oil 1 onion, diced

1 large red bell pepper, chopped

12 ounces sausage, cut into rounds

2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning

1 teaspoon salt

11/2 cups uncooked brown rice

1 (32-ounce) carton (or 4 cups) reduced-sodium chicken stock

1. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat the oil and sauté the onion and pepper until tender.

2. Add the sausage rounds to the pan and cook until the edges are slightly crispy, about 5 minutes, stirring every so often so they don’t stick to the pan. Add the Cajun seasoning and salt.

3. Add the rice and chicken stock and combine well. Cover and simmer on medium-low heat until the liquid is absorbed, 30 to 45 minutes. Flu with a fork before serving.

Variation tip: If you like, add some chopped fresh cilantro or parsley for color and extra flavor. You can also swap out the sausage for salami, hot dogs, or boneless, skinless chicken.
