Boul: Salads and Treats with an Israeli twist

Tara Dargavel, founder of new local foodie business Boul, shares her favourite Passover recipe and gives us an insight into how and why she started Boul.

Why did you start Boul?
Having grown up with an Israeli mother and with frequent pre-pandemic trips to Israel, Israeli food has always been an ingrained part of our family culture. I love food and experimenting with different flavours and I honestly think that the Israeli food scene is one of the best there is. Working in events has meant that I’ve been at home a lot more than usual which has reignited my passion for cooking. This then led me to turn my passion into a business.

What type of food do you serve at Boul?
Boul serves simple, delicious and nutritious food with an Israeli twist with salads at its core. These are all available for delivery to your door in Brighton and Hove. I chose the name 'Boul' as a play on the word 'bowl' but I also liked the fact that it sounded like soul as I think my food is full of Israeli soul. It’s very difficult to find good salads in Sussex and with Boul you will always find fresh, seasonal salads with Middle Eastern flavours. Our signature treat would have to be our babka which is made with love and I think the perfect way to bring in Shabbat. Moving forward, as we’re allowed to socialise more, I will be introducing more sharing salads and dishes which I’m really looking forward to.

What is your favourite Pesach food?
My almond macaroons are definitely a favourite and even before Boul my family and friends would ask me to make some for them! But whenever I think of Pesach (Passover) I always feel nostalgic about my Mum’s charoset! She does it in the typical Sephardi Israeli way full of chunks of nuts and sticky date syrup - it’s just the best on top of matzah!

Will you be offering food for Passover and how can people make an order?
Yes! I have just launched my Pesach menu, which you can view below. Please be in touch to make an order by emailing me at taradargavel1@gmail.com or by giving me a ring on 07988 700353.

My ultimate wheat-free Pesach Pancake recipe is really easy and just delicious when topped with your favourite toppings:
Ingredients (enough to feed 4):
4 ripe bananas
4 medium eggs
4 tbsp of nut butter of your choice
Sprinkle of chia seeds
Sprinkle of desiccated coconut
2 tbsp cacao or cocoa powder
Plus coconut oil for frying

Method:
1. Mash up the bananas and mix all the remaining ingredients together in a bowl to make your batter.
2. Heat a little coconut oil in a frying pan until it's nice and hot before pouring in the batter.
3. Fry on medium heat for 2-3 minutes until bubbles appear, then flip cook on the other side for another 1-2 minutes.
4. Transfer the cooked pancakes to a plate and repeat until the batter is used.
5. Serve warm with toppings of your choice (I like yoghurt, blueberries, almond butter & cacao nibs).

Enjoy!
