The Medieval Vegan

Vegan cooking, crafting, and other medieval fun

Lenten Meal: Tharida

Lent is a great opportunity for the Medieval Vegan since it was a time of fasting and so the foods eaten are a lot closer to what I’ve been cooking. Of course the medieval Christian would still count fish (and sometimes any meat that they made to look like fish) but even so there are a number of recipes that are truly vegan.

This first one was a fava bean recipe with a very strong sesame seed and lemon flavor to it. I’d never eaten fava beans before and they are very earthy. Even with the unusually strong sesame oil flavor it was a good and hearty dish.
