I will however still post some more Lent-friendly dishes through the next month or so. Holy Week is still coming up and alot of Greeks will be still looking for new food ideas while fasting.
I’m excited to show you my Gigantes Bruschetta. Gigantes are a Greek baked butter beans dish that’s served in practically every Greek home.
Last year I posted my family’s version of Gigantes and you can follow the easy steps here. I made Gigantes the other night and I was looking forward to having my Greek snack…a Bruschetta topped with Gigantes.
Before I continue, let me set the record straight on how Bruschetta is pronounced: it’s “Brooos-Sketta”. Got it? Good! Apparently I have a few Italian food Carabinieri who are watching my every little step!
Scrape the top of the bread with some garlic, drizzle with olive oil and top with the warm Gigantes.
Serve as an appetizer, meze or snack. Your guests will ask for more!
