The Lenten Meatless Eating Thread

Post by Hovannes » Mon Feb 12, 2018 12:11 pm

I'm looking at meatless recipes for Lent----I'm thinking home made minestrone soup with crusty bread would be good, but what shape pasta should I try?
Can any minestrone soup makers here give me some suggestions?

I think Ditalini is appropriate here.

We do this at least once in Lent - it's AWESOME: http://www.cooks.com/recipe/3h9bw4fa/jo ... erole.html (it's the DUKE after all....)

Salmon is a solid choice. As is Sushi (bit showy, but a fave).

Tuna Croquettes or Crab Cakes are excellent options.

South of the Border? Chile Rellenos!

Easy make: Toasted Cheese Sammiches and Tomato Bisque soup.

Brinner minus the bacon/sausages. Add lots of veggies to that omelette.

We did a traditional Swiss Fondue with bread, veggies (sweet gherkins for fun), and fruit (apples, pears, apple-pears, figs, etc).

Going the Lacto-Ovo Vegetarian or Piscitarian tends to work out well.

It's Lent already? Man that was fast. Fish, then. Gonna be lots of good fish Fry's at local KofC halls around here. SE-TX, SW-LA.

Minestrone is more of a concept than a recipe. Made with what you've got...think the Italian version of the French potage. This is a good starter. http://www.seriouseats.com/2016/09/how- ... -soup.html.

Fat is really important here. Use more oil than you think you need.

Now, you want to start a fight, get a couple of contadini arguing about pasta e fagioli.
