Format: Paperback
A unique and enthusiastically recommended collection of specialized recipes, When You Fast: Recipes For Lenten Seasons by Catherine Mandell draws upon the culinary traditions of traditional Orthodox Christianity by featuring two hundred recipes that will provide observants of the Lenten season with a diversity of healthy, nourishing, delicious meals. Enhanced throughout with sayings from the Mothers and Fathers of the early Orthodox Christian Church about how the body and soul are affected and influenced by eating habits, When You Fast additionally features sage advice on stocking a Lenten pantry and offers guidelines for fasting in accordance with the Orthodox Christian tradition. From Onion Flatbread; Vegetarian Borscht; Transfiguration Monastery Lenten Hash; and Baked Penne with Vegetables; to Greek Tomato Rice Pilaf; Crabmeat Stuffed Mushroom Caps; String Bean and Pepper Stew; and Lenten Oatmeal Cookies, When You Fast offers recipes for breads, spreads, sandwiches, soups, salads, main dishes, fish, shellfish, and desserts, including dairy-free recipes, dishes with and without oil, and dozens of variations for core recipes.

This Lenten cookbook is excellent for all times of the year as many of the recipes have oil or no oil options. Mostly Orthodox Christians will find this cookbook useful but anyone who is into a vegetarian diet will make good use of this book. This cookbook was quite popular in the parish bookstore I manage so I can attest to its universal appeal. You won't be disappointed in this book.

LOVE the recipes in this cookbook. They are mostly vegan main dish. I've made several of the recipes for the church coffee hour and every person who has tried the food has loved it and asked for the reciple. Unfortunately, I lost the cookbook while shopping, and have had to re-purchase. This book has unique blends of spices and ingredients that are very tasty. Not hot spicy, but tasty spicy.

This is a very informative book, with thought provoking information regarding fasting, overall dietary habits and spiritual condition. I expected only recipes and was pleasantly surprised by the other information provided--I had to read it a few times to fully digest (no pun intended) what was being discussed. Humbled by what I read, I have been trying to modify my approach to eating and beliefs about food and nutrition. As the lenten period approaches (Great Lent in the Orthodox faith), I will be re-reading this book and making the recipes.
