Good Friday

Today is good Friday!

In Haiti, during the holy week, meat is usually not eaten. But that rule is mostly stressed on good Friday. (Vandredi Sen- Vendredi Saint).

On that day, Mom would have a lot of vegetables prepared.

  • Potatoes
  • beets
  • carrots
  • sweet potato
  • breadfruit (which technically is a fruit ) .
  • She sometimes prepared salads (tomato, lettuce, carrots, onions, olives served with a vinaigrette)

She would serve them with

  • eggs 
  • plantains
  • Any fish (salmon, smoked herring etc.)

Nothing was fried. Everything was either served boiled or with a sauce.

So try it at home! Super easy. Boil and serve.
