Palestinian Spinach Pies with Israeli Bean Soup

These go well together, maybe with a prayer for peace on the side.

Palestinian Spinach Pies from Food & Wine

Make the dough for the crust first and let it rise while you get the other things ready. Just before you bake the pies, instead of egg wash, brush the tops with Earth Balance (or other margarine) mixed with a little agave or sugar. For the filling, if you don't have sumac, add a little extra lemon juice and some lemon zest, to taste. (The zest makes a big difference.)

Israeli Bean Soup from a contributor to

I used two cans of white beans, instead of dry. If you do that, you don't have to simmer so long--only until the potatoes are done--and you can use four cups of water instead of six. Add some lemon juice and a little of the lemon zest you made for the spinach pies near the end of cooking.
