About this deal

Let them cool down for a while and then pour over the avgolemono sauce.See step-by-step instructions here . The word Nistisima refers to the food eaten during periods of lent and fasting. These are predominantlyvegan/ plant based foods. And this is how people of Orthodox faith eat for many days and weeks during the year. When you hear the word ‘fast’ you may assume it refers to the act of ‘not eating’. However in this sense, you can eat what you like but it mustn’tcontain animal products (the exception here being shellfish. As shellfish doesn’t bleed, so religiously this is considered ok. However I chose to keep the book vegan).

The dough should be soft and almost pillowy, but should hold its shape and be easy to roll. Watch video here . You want to avoid adding in too much flour. You want to get to the point just where the dough is pulling away from the side of the mixing bowl, as it's mixing. As soon as you have about 2 cups of flour left, add it slowly. As soon as you see the dough pulling away from the side, it's done. Watch video here. If you're not sure, don't add the extra flour you set aside. Let the dough rest for about 10-20 minutes. Here's another video. When the pie is ready, brush with the harissa garlic oil, discarding the garlic clove, and leave the pie to stand for at least 15 minutes. I’m in Australia, I’m assuming what you call “AP” or All Purpose flour is what we call, not very imaginatively I must say (!) “plain flour” ?? Place a grill pan on a high heat. Peel and slice the squash into 1cm slices, discarding any seeds. Place in a large bowl and drizzle with While the pie is baking, make the finishing oil. Crush the garlic, in its skin, with the side of your knife and place in a small pan with four tablespoons of olive oil. Gently fry over a low heat, until it starts smelling wonderful but it doesn’t burn – about 4 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and immediately stir in the remaining half-tablespoon of harissa. Leave to cool.I baked them for about 35 minutes in a preheated oven to 180 degrees C, or until logs were light brown. Place the fennel, sesame, coriander, cumin and nigella seeds in the pan and toast for just a couple of minutes until you can really smell them. On weekends, olive oil and wine are permitted. Fish is permitted only on two Sundays during the Lenten period: on the Feast of the Annunciation (March 25) and on Palm Sunday (one week before Easter). Place neatly in the pot seam side facing down, starting from the edge, moving in a circle towards the centre. Second and third layers may be placed on top.

Whether you are fasting or not – more and more people are waking up to plant-based diets and for many people, the supermarket meat substitutes are a definite no (it worries me what they are actually made of?) I love Chef AJ’s mantra – if I can’t make it in my kitchen then I don’t eat it. Whole food plant-based foods are in my opinion the way to optimum health and longevity – so if you want to eat well invest in books like this and see how your health changes…………Remove from the heat and leave in the pan for a minute while you pulse the nuts. Pulse a few times to roughly chop, then add the toasted seeds, along with the remaining ingredients and pulse until roughly chopped and well combined. Do not let this become too fine, or it will turn into a paste. Transfer to an airtight container. Wow Ivy - and what will you cook for tomorrow (hahahaha). I love these customs and how people can change and do things they don't normally do when they feel purpose. Beautiful array of yummies.
