1/1 Photo of Fanesca (Spring Soup)
Plan ahead for your Easter feast! I read an article in The New Yorker magazine regarding a letter from Ecuador by Calvin Trillin about a Spanish soup that he adores called Fanesca, a thick and hearty soup heavy on the beans, which is only available during holy week. Well, the article didn't come with a recipe but I found several on-line, all more or less the same. Don't let the number of ingredients put you off, it will come together relatively quickly. Seeing as how I'm a vegetarian, I omitted the salt cod but I am leaving it here in case you are not but making it an optional addition. If you do add it then you'll have to start this recipe the day before. Note that the rice, beans and vegetables should all be cooked before adding and that will take you less than an hour if they are all cooked simultaneously (see instructions). If you cook everything ahead of time this recipe comes together in 15 minutes. Anyway, I made this on Saturday, day before Easter and we both loved it:D
