These are from <<Vegetarian Celebrations> by Nava Atlas and are more <generic Sephardic recipes that the author feels go well with latkes than chanukah recipes per se. I haven't tried the eggplant, but I like the beans & her version of Israeli Salad is pretty standard.

Small white beans cooked in a savory sauce is a common Sephardic dish.

served year round for holidays and everyday meals alike.

Heat the oil in a deep heavy saucepan. Add the onion and celery; saute over moderate heat until they are golden. Stir in the crushed tomatoes, sugar & seasonings. Bring to a simmer, then stir in the beans. Add a pinch of salt and a grinding of pepper. Simmer, covered, over very low heat, for 45 minutes. Taste to adjust seasonings & serve hot.
