Friday 13th October 2017 is the centenary of ‘The Miracle of the Sun‘ in Fatima, Portugal. We took this as a sign to create a Portuguese style thirteenfridays meal with an added sun theme.
13 Spooky Sardines – Simple and tasty with 13 lemon slices.
We served both starter and main course with a 13 ingredient salad of rocket, spinach, watercress, celery, fennel, cherry tomatoes, sun dried tomatoes, sprouts, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, capers, red pepper, and olives along with a side dish of 13 cornichons and more green olives.
Paranormal Punahou – A 13 ingredient Portuguese Bean stew (modified to be vegetarian) – red kidney beans, white kidney beans, stock, onion, carrots, potatoes, chopped tomatoes, macaroni, pasata, savoy cabbage, garlic, water and seasoning. Served with 13 Batatas a Portuguesa (Portuguese fried potato).
13 Petrifying Pastéis de Nata (Portuguese Custard Tarts) – A must have Portuguese dessert!
Evil Espresso Thirtinis & Scary Sunflower Seed Brittle – a little extra dessert to celebrate the sun theme!
