A time honored tradition for Shabbos Parshas Zochor is the eradication of Amalek through food. Food, did you say? How does that work?

To tell the truth, I’m not sure of the way it works, but here’s the inside story: AMALEK in Loshon Kodesh is spelled ayin, mem, lamed and kuf.

These four letters are an acronym for the four traditional “Amalek” kugels eaten on this Shabbos – ayin – apple (עפעל), mem – flour (מעהל), Lamed – lokshin (לוקשין), kuf – potato (קארטאפיל).

There is no specific set time to eat the kugels – and may be served throughout Shabbos.

Quick Food Processor Potato Kugel

6 large russet potatoes, peeled and cubed
3 large eggs
1 large onion, sliced
4 tablespoons oil for mixture
salt to taste
Oil for pan

Line a pan with parchment paper. Heat open to medium. Place ingredients in food processor and pulse until the ingredients are almost liquid and smooth. Oil pan well. Pour batter into pan, bake until golden and bubbly. Try to leave some for the Shabbos meal.

May we merit the total eradication of Amalek and the coming of Moshiach, celebrating this Purim, united in joy, in Yerushalayim!

Good Shabbos, Shabbat Shalom
